Today, the Kansas City Chiefs clinched the AFC West with a win over the Titans and a loss by the Chargers to the Cincinnati Bengals.
In July, there was exactly one national outlet predicting that the Chiefs would win the AFC West: Football Outsiders.
In Football Outsiders Almanac 2010, we projected a AFC West crown for the Chiefs, thanks to an extremely weak schedule, decline from the Chargers, an elite running game, and a breakout season from outside linebacker Tamba Hali.
