ESPN analyst Mark Schlereth predicted the 2013 AFC playoff teams in this video.
He pegged just one team from the AFC West to make the playoffs. Not surprisingly, that team is the Denver Broncos. The defending division champion went 13-3 last season.
The three other teams in the division won a combined 13 games. While those teams worked to improve this offseason, so did Denver. So, it would have been surprising had Schlereth picked anyone else but Denver to win the division.
