The Raiders biggest rival has finally ended it's 22 year streak without a playoff victory. That's right folks, no more saying the Raiders won a playoff game before the last time the Kansas City Chiefs did. Unfortunately, that all came to an end in positively dominating fashion with the Chiefs 30-0 shutout of the Houston Texans.

From the very start of the game the Chiefs had it in the bag. They cruised to the fastest score in NFL playoff history with the opening kickoff being returned for a touchdown by Kniles Davis and beat up the Texans the rest of the day. They were helped by some epically bad QB play from Brian Hoyer who had 4 turnovers in just the first half, but the Chiefs deserve all the credit for their decisive victory.

They now go on to play the New England Patriots in Foxboro so their 11 game winning streak will need an improbable victory to make it to 12. It is the NFL though so any given Sunday is in full effect and the Chiefs have been arguably the most impressive team in the league for the last half of the season.

Well, any given Saturday in this case because the game will be played on Saturday, the 16th, at 1:35 p.m. PT /4:35 p.m. ET. The Patriots are not exactly a fan favorite team either so it will be interesting to see who gets the wrath of Raiders fans. Can they both just lose?
