The NFL season kicks off this week with a rematch of last years Superbowl between the Denver Broncos and the Carolina Panthers. On the September 6 Breaking the Plane Podcast, Matt Williamson (@WilliamsonNFL) and Jon Ledyard (@LedyardNFLDraft) continue their NFL preview with a look at the AFC West, which may be the best division in not just the conference but the league. With the defending champion Denver Broncos, another 2015 AFC playoff team in the Kansas City Chiefs, the up-and-coming Raiders, and a solid Chargers team led by Phillip Rivers, this division may come down to Week 17. Other topics include:
