Most of you see the headline, and begin to laugh. The ones that don't laugh are either Raiders fans, or they understand my logic.
Oakland has played strong this season, however they will fall short of a playoff bid. If they manage to hold they're dominance in the AFC West, and can beat the Kansas City Chiefs, they will become the first team to finish their division undefeated since 1967. That is the year that they split the league into divisions. It is almost common sense, if you beat all three teams in your division both times, how are you not champions of your division?
I am trying to figure out how a team who won all they're division games, doesn't get to represent that division in the playoffs. I see the overall record, but that doesn't make the team a division powerhouse, nor a likely winner in the wildcard round.
