At times this season it’s looked like the Oakland Raiders have finally turned the corner and rejoined relevant NFL clubs, but the Kansas City Chiefs have really been the talk of the division thanks to a wild nine-game win streak.

For now the Raiders are picking behind the Saints but their similar win percentage (.513) could vault them over the Saints with a Falcons loss and a few other unlucky breaks.

Who to root for:  Oakland, because their win would keep them from competing for the Saints’ draft positioning in the event they both go 7-9.
