According to an Adam Schefter tweet, this game featured the first Oakland kneel down play since 2002.

This has been a common complaint from Eagles fans over the past several years. Andy Reid like to throw the football, and this team goes through some serious funks from time to time. I'd really be looking forward to local sports radio tomorrow but the Phillies happiness will drown out the Eagles anger. Damn Phillies ruining my fun.

Sorry. That's where I draw the line. No kudos to Oakland, ever.

I have mixed feelings about the Raiders and Chiefs winning. On the one hand, I never want to see an AFC West team win anything other than the Broncos. On the other hand, I think we are getting close to a point that the Raiders and Chiefs face football oblivion (folding or moving). I appreciate rivalry, but I don't want to see a situation where rival teams vanish from existence.

I took the 14 points and won with Oakland on this game. How bad does Vegas think you are when you are at home and a 14 point dog?

I just don't want old rivalries to lose their value because some of the teams involved are literally dying. The Raiders franchise utterly failing would be bad for the AFC West, bad for the NFL, and, yes, bad for the Denver Broncos.

the old rivalries are basically dead. the greatness of the division games with Oakland and KC is gone. right now, we get more amped up at the possibilty of revenge against Indy, or screwing Brady again than we do for division games anymore.

I know. I just hate to see storied franchises get into a neverending pattern of suck. The Chiefs and Raiders played in three of the first four Super Bowls, and the Chiefs' win in Super Bowl IV went a long way towards cementing the merger.

I remember as a kid watching the Elway-Montana Monday Night Football game with my dad where the Chiefs beat the Broncos very late in the game. I remember watching the Broncos get the Chiefs back in the 1998 playoffs too during the "Revenge Tour." These things don't happen when the Chiefs and Raiders are 2-14 teams, and that's bad for all involved.
