The storyline
Everything is still in play in the zany AFC West. These two teams really do not like one another. It is always a fun rivalry.

Why you should watch
These games have a tendency to get batty and bizarre. Strange things can happen. The Raiders generally find a way to beat themselves regardless of the opponent, but still, this could get interesting.
