<p>There are five 6-5 teams in the AFC right now, an absurd amount. But sticking out above the pack are the Chiefs, who are the winners of five straight entering Week 13. Only the undefeated Carolina Panthers are hotter than the Chiefs in terms of consecutive victories.</p> <p>When Jamaal Charles went down, it didn’t take long for Charcandrick West to emerge on the scene as a promising running back. Now, all the rage is about Spencer Ware, who has racked up an outstanding 210 yards and three touchdowns in the past two weeks. The better the running game is, the better the Chiefs play.</p> <p>Week 12 also saw the Chiefs use Jeremy Maclin at his fullest potential. The former Eagle nabbed nine passes for 160 yards and a touchdown. To defeat the Raiders and take the inside track in the AFC Wild Card race in Oakland this Sunday, the Chiefs will need to utilize Maclin’s service’s early and often.</p>. AFC West. 6-5. Kansas City Chiefs. 4. player. 124
