Default Does Oakland control their destiny now?

If they beat San Diego next week, do they win the division?

From what I hear it doesn't matter what happens with other teams if we beat KC we win the west.

We win the west if we win. If SD wins next week, and loses this week. We back.

As of this moment (before the SD game is over) here's the scenario:

Broncos clinch if:

1) Broncos win
OR
2) San Diego loses the game it's playing now against the lions, and wins next week.


The Raiders/Chargers game next week will be on at the same time, so we'll have no guarantee. Better for Tebow to prove himself vs Orton and win.

I think Oakland wins next week they are in. That is what they were saying on the Oakland AM sports radio. I bet our losses to NE and Buff may give them a better conference record but I have no clue really. I'm going to look it up now.

Detroit being up 24-0 now doesn't hurt. :-)

Nope. As stated in five other threads.

Just teasing about five other threads..... It's only two or three

I think our division & conference records will be the same, but Denver gets the nod vs common opponents (Miami game). Raiders have to win & Broncos have to lose..... I think...

Denver holds the tiebreakers.

A win next week or an Oakland loss clinches it for the Broncos. Oakland only gets in at 9-7 if Denver is 8-8.

Yes you are right because the only tie breaker you have is Division Record.

What if we both lose? Lol I thought last week if we beat KC we were in but I was listening to KC/oak game on am radio and the sports announcers were celebrating like they one sb saying they controlled destiny. Maybe a wild card berth?

It's very simple.........we win vs K.C. we win the division. Does not matter what happens later today or next week.

Oakland doesn't control their own destiny.

They lose the tiebreaker with the Broncos. They have 8 wins and Cincy has 9, so they don't clinch a WC berth simply by winning next week either.

Avoid the redundancy. See Blart post.

If San Diego loses today and we both lose next week, Broncos still win division. If San Diego somehow comes back and wins today and we lose and SD beats Oakland then SD gets in....... again.

Yeah, today's game only really mattered if the Raiders would have lost. Then the Broncos would have been kicking themselves for losing as well.

This is what the league and networks wanted... a showdown between Orton and Tebow The Chiefs can spoil the Broncos postseason hopes with a win.. But I think if the Raiders lose as well.. the Broncos back into the playoffs.

With Detroit likely to beat the Chargers today all we need next week is
A) A win, or
B) An Oakland loss.

All three (Faiders, Chuggers and us) teams would be 8-8 and we hold the tie breakers against both.
