There's no question who's going to win the AFC West — if you ask the readers of ProFootballWeekly.com.

In a just-concluded poll, the respondents overwhelmingly picked the Chargers to capture the division crown, even though they're currently in second place, one game behind the Chiefs. Perhaps in part because of San Diego's four-game winning streak and its recent trend of finishing seasons strongly, 1,447 of 2,367 poll respondents (61.1 percent) chose the Chargers to win the division.

Coming in a distant second in the poll was Kansas City with 679 votes (28.7 percent), followed by Oakland with 196 and Denver with only 45.

In our new poll, we ask readers to weigh in on which team they think will win the AFC South. There's currently only one game separating all four teams, with upstart Jacksonville tied for first with perennial division winner Indianapolis, which has lost three of its last four games. Vote now.
