The Raiders know they have to beat the Chargers Sunday to have a chance to play in the NFL’s postseason.
That, however, is the only thing they can control.
To win the AFC West title, the Raiders also need the Kansas City Chiefs to beat Tim Tebow and the Broncos in Denver. All the Raiders can do in that game is look to Colorado and cross their fingers that the Chiefs, now out of the playoff picture, put up a fight.
Apparently the Chiefs still have a lot of fight left in them.
Interim head coach Romeo Crennel said this week his Chiefs are going to play to win. Meanwhile, his quarterback – Kyle Orton, released by the Broncos late in the season – has much to prove.
Crennel says he plans to play his veterans and starters and not use the game as a test for young players on the roster. And he’s confident those players will want to beat the Broncos Sunday not so much to play spoiler, but because of pride.

Is there still time to jam another Tim Tebow story down your throats before 2011 ends? OK, good. That uncomfortable silence on Sunday will be Broncos quarterback Tim Tebow and Chiefs quarterback Kyle Orton not discussing that little matter from earlier this season, for which Tebow reportedly still owes Orton money. Tebow, in one of those weird kangaroo-court rulings that only seem...
Pressure? What pressure? Broncos quarterback Tim Tebow on Wednesday called the prospect of possibly having to beat visiting Kansas City on Sunday for a playoff berth "exciting."
U.S. adults would most like to be neighbors with Denver Broncos quarterback Tim Tebow if given a choice of celebrity neighbors, according to a nationwide survey released today.
John Elway is saying all the right things. Last week, Elway declared that Broncos QB Tim Tebow "isn't going anywhere," while cleverly leaving out any mention of Tebow actually being the team's starter. Elway has had to walk a fine line all season long, making sure that Tebow lovers feel like their hero has gotten a fair shake from the organization, while maintaining...
Two weeks ago, the New England Patriots walked all over the Denver Broncos in a 41-23 win. More importantly, Mayweather got rich—well, richer. The Las Vegas Review-Journal reports that Mayweather had $1 million on the Patriots. The director of the Cantor Gaming sports book at the M Resort, Mike Colbert, refused to confirm or deny the report, but...
Through something less than intense film study, Romeo Crennel found a theme to the Chiefs' offense when inside the opponent's 20-yard line.
