Raiders overcome early season slide to move into tie for 1st

Raiders overcome early season slide to move into tie for 1st Raiders overcome early season slide to move into tie for 1st

Fortunately for the Chiefs, they still have the division lead because of the three-way tie. That makes this a massive game for Oakland in terms of the division standings, because a sweep would win a tiebreaker.

In the AFC West, the Chiefs, Raiders and Chargers are virtually tied with 6-6 record.

The Chiefs and Raiders have similar issues: Neither defense can stop the opposition from moving the football.

Both teams' seasons have gone in opposite directions over the past few weeks.

"We're all good football teams and we're all alive right now". After starting 5-0, they've lost six of seven. Now they have a chance to control their own destiny and win a division title. If they win out, the AFC West is theirs.

Indeed, after a 2-0 start, the Raiders dropped four straight games.

The Chiefs are favored at home in their biggest game of the season.

After the Chargers, the Chiefs play host to Miami on December 24 and finish the regular season with a New Year's Eve date at Denver. Kansas City had a 14-point lead over the Jets last week and still lost. The Raiders are 8-3 ATS in their last 11 meetings in Kansas City, the road team is 21-8 ATS in their last 29 meetings and the favorite is 7-3 ATS in their last 10 meetings. Don't forget, however, that all three of these teams had a four-game losing streak at one point. Defensively, the Raiders are yielding 23.2 points and 346.0 total yards (241.1 in passing and 104.9 in rushing) per game.

Their journeys to this point could not look any different.

In years past, we've seen some bad divisions. The Houston Texans, Indianapolis Colts and Tennessee Titans were there in the AFC South in 2016.

The two teams last played on November 3, 2013 at FedEx Field.

At the end of the day, someone has to win the AFC West and sit in that (likely) four-seed in the AFC playoffs. I'll take the free field goal with the hook even if it's more of a fade from Kansas City.
