The Oakland Raiders have always played the Denver Broncos, the Kansas City Chiefs and the San Diego Chargers—dating back to the inaugural 1960 season of the American Football League. The Silver & Black even have played these three foes six times in the playoffs, as the rivalries run deep. The 2014 season closes with yet another big rivalry game for the Raiders—at Denver.
For an NFL team to be playoff caliber, it needs to win most of its games at home and find victory half the time on the road: the Raiders are winless this year away from the Coliseum.
Sure, the New York Giants started 0-6, but they’ve won their last two games now, and coming off a bye week, they’ll be ready to host Oakland.
