The AFC West is a time capsule for generations of passionate fans. They were born in the AFL, which in the 1960s served as a petri dish for a new free-wheeling aerial attack that would challenge the rest of the NFL to dare keep up. Lance Alworth caught over the shoulder deep balls. Len Dawson smoked seam passes over the middle and smoked cigarettes on the sidelines afterwards. Al Davis didn’t care what his players did off the field as long as they won on it. In the 1980s Dan Fouts and John Elway rewrote passing records, pushing opponents away from muddy running backs and four yard sweeps. The division still carries some of that offense-first aura, even as teams change cities and players year after year. Let’s buckle up and check out the wild, wild west.
