AFC West standings: Broncos still above Raiders after bye week

The Denver Broncos didn’t play in Week 9, but a division rival’s loss helped the Broncos avoid dropping a spot in the AFC West.

After a bye, the Broncos (3-5) are still third in the division, above the Las Vegas Raiders (2-6). Las Vegas had an opportunity to climb above Denver in the standings on Sunday, but the Raiders blew a 17-0 lead in a 27-20 loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Following that loss, Las Vegas remains in fourth place in the division. Here’s a look at how the AFC West stands entering Week 10.

The Broncos have four division games remaining this season — home against the Raiders, home against the Chargers and a pair of games against the Chiefs. Denver has a big hole to dig out of in the AFC West, but the team still has an outside shot of competing for a Wild Card berth this season.
