Once more unto the breach, my friends, once more. Sunday the Raiders will be among 20 NFL teams to play their final game of the season. They face the Chiefs who are already in the playoffs but still have hopes of winning the AFC West. Both teams are coming off wins, the Chiefs are coming off nine of them in a row. Hence, the reason most of the staff (4-2) has the Chiefs winning.
It is also the final chance for the staff to finish strong in their picks. I am still holding the lead where I've been since week six, but Marcus is within reach of stealing away the top spot at the wire. We have three game picks which differ, so it's very possible.

The community picks are also coming down to the wire, with each of the top predictors being able to hang with the staff, though none topping our top myself and Marcus. A lot can happen in the final week, so we'll see.
