DENVER -- Wrapping up the day in the AFC West:

While there is going to be plenty of storylines for Sunday's winner-take-all game in San Diego between the Broncos and the Chargers, one of the best will be the Philip Rivers-Jay Cutler rivalry.

The two had a famous verbal spat last December in San Diego. The game, and the division title, will likely come down to how has a better game Sunday night.

The Chiefs had no sacks on Sunday and they are stuck on nine sacks for the season.

If the Broncos lose next Sunday, they will become the second team in NFL history to blow a three-game division lead. The 2003 Minnesota Vikings did it.

The Broncos have allowed at least 30 points in three of their past four games. They were all losses.

The Broncos scored a touchdown on a drive in which its communication device wasn't working. Cutler had to run to the sidelines between plays to get the call from the coaching staff.

The Bills were stuck in Denver on Sunday night because of weather issues in Buffalo.

The Broncos finished their home schedule 4-4 after starting 3-0 at home. San Diego is 4-3 at home.

The Chiefs will get the second or third pick in the draft.

The Raiders will choose in the 4-8 range.
