2. Denver Broncos @ Las Vegas Raiders
The Raiders are the No. 2 team in the AFC West with only a two-game deficit behind the Chiefs. They currently have the head-to-head win, meaning that the Raiders still have a shot at winning the division. The Chiefs would love to see the Broncos win this game, a loss that would give them a three-win lead in the division and an opportunity next week to even the head-to-head score.
This would put the Chiefs only two wins or two Raiders losses away from winning the division for the fifth year in a row. It would also potentially push the Raiders out of the playoff race, which is not necessary, but is always very satisfying.
However, this game is also important for the Chiefs to watch since the Raiders are the Chiefs next opponent. Sure, the Chiefs have already matched up with the divisional opponent once and probably know more about the team than the coaches themselves, but there is no such thing as knowing too much.
