There are thirty-two teams in the National Football League. Twenty of them will play their last game of the season today. Twelve of them will play at least one more game (four division winners and two wildcards from each conference). For the first time in years the Oakland Raiders are still in it this late in the season:
To win the AFC West, Oakland needs a win and a Denver loss at home to Kansas City. To get a wild-card spot, the Raiders need a win, a win by the Broncos, a home loss by Cincinnati (9-6) to Baltimore and either a Tennessee loss at Houston or a Jets win at Miami.
The Raiders play San Diego in Oakland at 1:00 pm pacific. The Broncos play at the same time. Two of the other three games will be decided by the time the Raiders take the field.
The Cowboys and Giants will play for the NFC East title tonight in the regular season finale.
