Broncos Week 16 in the AFC West was a good one as Denver tried to hold on to their second seed placement in the playoffs, while San Diego defense welcomed the Jets' Greg McElroy to the NFL.

And Oakland tried to find the end zone as Kansas City tried to stop Indianapolis from clinching a spot in the playoffs.  

This article will recap all the action from Week 16 in the West.

Cleveland @ Denver

Denver keeps on rolling and have now won 10 straight games, and have outscored opponents 125-65 in their last four games.

Denver outscored Cleveland 14-3 in the first half, as Peyton Manning threw a 22-yard touchdown pass to Demaryius Moore and a 10-yard pass to Eric Decker. Denver would score four more times in the second half, scoring on an eight-yard touchdown pass to Decker, a one-yard touchdown run by Jacob Hester, and two Matt Prater field goals.

Cleveland score on another field goal and a six-yard touchdown pass from Colt McCoy to Greg Little (two-point conversion no good), making the final score 34-12.

In addition to his three touchdown passes, Manning completed 70 percent of his passes and threw for 339 yards. In the running game Knowshon Moreno and Ronnie Hillman combined for 28 carries and 113 yards.

The top three receivers for Denver in this game were Demaryius Thomas who had nine receptions, 102 receiving yards and a touchdown; Jacob Tamme who had two receptions and 69 receiving yards; and Eric Decker who had six receptions, 65 yards and two touchdowns.

Denver's defense played well holding Cleveland to 233 total yards, while also accumulating six sacks and a fumble recovery.   

Denver will finish their season at home against Kansas City. Denver is still fighting to hold on to the No. 2 seed in the playoffs, as a win for Denver or a New England loss will secure a bye week and home games in the playoffs.

With Denver and New England both scheduled to play at 4:25 on Sunday, it would not be surprising if the first team played long enough in Week 17 to secure the win over the Chiefs.  

San Diego @ New York Jets

San Diego's defense gave New York Jets quarterback Greg McElroy a welcoming party that he will not soon forget. The Chargers defense picked off McElroy once, caused him to lose a fumble, and sacked him 11 times for a total loss of 71 yards.

The defense also held the Jets to 69 rushing yards, but did allow Shonn Greene to score two one-yard rushing touchdowns.

On offense for San Diego, quarterback Philip Rivers only completed 50 percent of his passes but did manage to pass for 165 yards, and two touchdowns, one was a 37-yard pass to Danario Alexander and the other was a 34-yard pass to Antonio Gates.

With Ryan Mathews out at the running back position, Jackie Battle got the bulk of the carries, rushing for 49 yards on 19 carries, however, Ronnie Brown also contributed 31 yards on five carries.

After not making a catch last week against Carolina, Danario Alexander had three catches for 69 yards and the touchdown. San Diego's other two leading receivers, Antonio Gates and Eddie Royal, combined for five receptions, 83 receiving yards and the touchdown by Gates.

This was the Chargers second win in three weeks, but with a 6-9 overall record, the wins are probably not enough to save the job of Norv Turner and Philip Rivers.

Oakland @ Carolina

For the second week in a row Oakland failed to score a touchdown and fell to the Carolina Panthers 17-6. Carolina scored twice in the first half on a 23-yard touchdown pass from quarterback Cam Newton to receiver Steve Smith and on a three-yard touchdown run by Newton. Oakland only scored a field goal in the first half and the halftime score was 14-3.

The second half was extremely quiet as both teams only exchanged field goals.

Oakland quarterback Carson Palmer was injured during the Raiders' second offensive series and Matt Leinart took over the majority of the quarterback duties for the game.

Palmer finished the game with three pass completions on three attempts for 31 yards. Leinart finished completing 50 percent of his passes for 115 yards while also throwing an interception.  

Terrelle Pryor got in the game as well completing his only pass for five yards. Pryor also had two rushing yards on one rushing attempt and 22 receiving yards on one pass reception.

After a spectacular game in which he rushed for 110 yards in Week 15, Darren McFadden only managed 33 yards on 17 carries, while Mike Goodson had 12 yards on only four attempts.

In the receiving game no one player stood out as nine different players had at least one pass reception, and Darrius Heyward-Bey was the team's leading receiver with  31 yards.

Oakland's defense played a decent game and even forced two turnovers, but were unable to fully contain Cam Newton.

Oakland's season record is now 4-11 and the team will finish the season next week at San Diego.

Indianapolis @ Kansas City

The first half of this game belonged to the defense and special teams as Indianapolis scored on a 32-yard interception return for a touchdown by Darius Butler and two Adam Vinatieri field goals and Kansas City only scored on a Ryan Succop field goal, and the score at halftime was 13-3.

The third quarter belonged to Kansas City as they scored on 86-yard Jamaal Charles touchdown run and another Succop field goal, tying the game at 13.

The deciding factor in the game was a seven-yard pass from quarterback Andrew Luck to receiver Reggie Wayne that eventually gave the Colts the 20-13 win and a playoff berth.

Kansas City relied heavily on their running game in this game as both Jamaal Charles rushed for 226 yards and a touchdown while Peyton Hillis rushed for 101 yards.

In the passing game quarterback Brady Quinn completed only 45 percent of his passes, throwing for 162 yards and two interceptions. The leading receiver in the game for the Chiefs was Jon Baldwin, who had two receptions for 64 yards.

The Chiefs' defense held the Colts offense in check as they only gave up 288 total yards and 15 first downs, but they did allow Indianapolis to march down the field in the fourth quarter and gave up that late-game touchdown.

With the loss Kansas City is 2-13 on the season and finish their season next week at Denver.
