It’s easy to see that the Raiders and Broncos will thrive on their schedule outside the conference. If the AFC West beats up on each other [as many of us expect], then the Broncos will probably take the AFC West. If not them, then the Raiders are close behind in the “Charmin” lottery.
The Chiefs’ path to the AFC West crown does not lie in the games outside the conference. 4-4 would not be a surprise with that schedule.
If we are to contend for the title, we will have to do much better than 4-4 in the conference. We will have to sweep at least  of our AFC West neighbors, possibly  of them.
