Oakland Raiders: Why They Can Run the Table and Get in the Playoffs

The Oakland Raiders just won their biggest game of the year against the San Diego Chargers. That puts them in second place in the AFC West along with the Chargers at 6-6.

The Kansas City Chiefs are two games up in first place in the AFC West with four games left. The mission is still possible for the Raiders to win the division because their schedule isn't too bad and they have a game left against the Chiefs.

The Chargers are in position to help out and beat the Chiefs this coming Sunday. Philip Rivers and company will be up for the task as they still have hope to win the AFC crown themselves.

If the Chargers beat the Chiefs this Sunday, the week 17 game between the Raiders and Chiefs will mean everything just like old times. A Raider win at that point will force a first place tie that goes to the Raiders because of their division record.

Turn the page to see why the Raiders can run the table including the Chiefs in week 17.
