The NFL has some games for us before the main event this afternoon.

Stew Milne-USA TODAY Sports

Greetings, Raider Nation! I have to say, it's unusual to not worry about the Raiders' playoff chances this late in the season. Usually, the Raiders are long out of the playoff picture by now, but they've already secured their spot and are gunning for the division today as they take on the Colts later in the day. But there are plenty of exciting matchups this morning, many of which are divisional games. Some are more exciting than others.

The one that should pique the interest of Raider fans the most is Jets vs. Patriots, The Pats are the only AFC team with a better record than the Raiders, and a potential loss to the Jets would certainly be a boon to Oakland's hopes for the number one overall seed.

Here's the full schedule of morning games today:

Jets vs. Patriots

Titans vs. Jaguars

Vikings vs. Packers

Chargers vs. Browns

Indigenous Persons vs. Bears

Falcons vs. Panthers

So enjoy the morning games. I hope none of you have to sit through Chargers vs. Browns, aka the "Sadness Bowl". Stay tuned to Silver and Black Pride for the latest in Oakland Raiders news!
