The Las Vegas Raiders took down the Kansas City Chiefs 20-14 Monday in Week 16 to throw another wrench in the AFC playoff picture, shocking Patrick Mahomes and company at Arrowhead Stadium. The Chiefs had a chance to clinch the division with a victory, but now will have more work to do. The Raiders keep their hopes alive for the postseason, although they’ll need some help.
The Raiders are behind several teams in the wild card race, with the Steelers, Bengals, Texans and Colts all a win up on Las Vegas. The Raiders would need to win out to have a shot, and would need a combination of other results. They could still win the division if they win out and the Chiefs lose out.
The Chiefs can still win the division with a win, a tie or a Broncos loss. Denver had a chance to overtake Kansas City but also lost in Week 16. Kansas City gets Cincinnati and the Chargers in the next two weeks. A win over the Bengals would be enough to clinch the AFC West.
