Just when Raiders fans thought their team had finally and thoroughly screwed up their last chance at the playoffs, the Silver & Black block not one but two field goals to squeak past Kansas City. Now all Oakland needs is for those same Chiefs to beat the Broncos Sunday and then take care of business against a Chargers team they carved up pretty thoroughly at the beginning of November. Not such a tall order, but do you really think that's gonna happen? C'mon son, this is the Raiders we're talking about here. —Jack Erwin
