We Got This!

The remaining 3 games for the Raiders are: at San Diego, we get the hapless Colts at home, and the final game against the Broncos, who don't have much of an offense. Unfortunately for Denver, Von Miller can't play QB.

The Titans defeated the Broncos today (12/11/2016), they are now sitting in the 6th seeded position and dropping fast, possibly out of the playoff picture altogether. Look at the Broncs remaining schedule: Patriots on 12/18, at the Chiefs on Christmas day and close out the season on New Years Day against the Silver & Black. It's a wrap for the donkeys!
The 2nd seeded Chiefs (see schedule) have it a little easier. They get the Titans (not a push-over by any means, just ask Denver) and Broncos at home, and their final game will be at San Diego (who can certainly play the spoiler role).

My prediction:
  • The Raiders go 3-0 to close out the season with a 13-3 record.
  • The Chiefs win 1 of their remaining 3 games, end the season with a 11-5 record.  
  • Who cares what the Broncos do..
  • New England has the Ravens at home on Monday Night (12/12). Dec 18th, Patriots are at Denver, then close out the season against the woeful Jets and the Dolphins who will be without QB Ryan Tannehill, out for the season with a torn ligament in his knee. Hopefully the Pats will lose to either the Ravens or the Broncos because it would be a full-blown miracle if the Jets or Dolphins beat em'. They need to lose one, Chiefs need to lose one, while we run the table. If we're number one seed in the AFC, we have a legit shot at playing in Houston on February 5, 2017.
