Sure I do but can anyone deny Rivers helped us tremendously, I mean come on six second half turnovers with a 24point lead at home.

I'd switch around 14th and 15th places. Otherwise, that looks about right.

Well, I saw VonDoom pressuring Rivers into those mistakes. I saw two young players in the secondary making plays.

The Chargers were running the ball and eating clock when Rivers fumbled the ball on a great play by Doom but when The Chargers got the ball back with the score 24 to 14 Rivers inexplicably went to his passing game and tossed 2 soft balls that got picked. Don't get me wrong both the O and the
D for Denver played extremely well the second half but we got a big assist from
Rivers. No doubt it was the best half of football Denver has played all year but we had a big assist from Rivers. Had they continued to run the ball we might be singing a different tune right now

Baltimore, Houston, and New England are the top teams.

I absolutely think Denver and San Diego are pretty well matched as far as talent goes, but there is something to be said about emotions in this game. Epic Monday Nighters like that can sink teams and raise others (2002 Raiders/Broncos, anyone?). Everyone else kinda washes together. The Browns are much stronger than their record indicates. The Chiefs, who actually have a lot of talent all over the field, are somehow just awful. Crennel-effect. The Raiders are better than their record indicates as well, but they're still the Raiders. I got Miami and Tennessee as the current dark horses to make the playoffs.

The 3rd best team in AFC plays more then 1 or 2 qtr's and don't get down by 10-20 + pts game after game.
You're not answering the question. Who is better?

I'll answer yours. The Chargers scored on one drive they started in their own territory. The muffed punt wasn't even forced. Most of the damage was self-inflicted. It's not like the Boltz dominated us.

Does anyone disagree with me now that the Raiders are the worst team in the AFC? They look pretty bad today against a bad team whose only weapon was carted off the field in the first half.

6 games into the season it's hard to tell.

Well, the poll was for right now. Not the end of the season. So it is the perfect time to tell.

This is the weakest I've seen the AFC in a really long time.

Texans are the class of the AFC right now. They are well above the rest at the moment.

I think we are slightly better but, not by much.
