NFL: Oakland Raiders at Minnesota Vikings Jeffrey Becker-USA TODAY Sports

What a whirlwind this Sunday has been up until this point. My pick ‘em is absolutely shot. Today has been filled with a flurry of upsets, games going down to the wire, and most importantly, improved playoff position for the Raiders.

Oakland currently sits just half a game behind the now 6-4 Chiefs and is only out of the final Wildcard spot in the AFC due to a tiebreaker that Pittsburgh holds. With the Dolphins upsetting the Colts, the Raiders pull even with them record-wise, which is big due to their head-to-head tiebreaker.

Tonight’s matchup between the Cowboys and Vikings has no affect on the Raiders playoff hopes, but it will be massively important for the NFC playoff picture.

Who are you rooting for?
