The Las Vegas Raiders and Kansas City Chiefs have played two epic games in 2020, with each of the two AFC West rivals winning one-score thrillers.

Both games (a Raiders 40-32 road win in Week 5 and a Kansas City 35-31 road win in Week 11) were classics, and the long rivalry is as hot as it has been in years.

After being outclassed by the Chiefs in the first four matchups in Jon Gruden’s return in 2018, the Raiders have shown they can not only compete with the reigning Super Bowl champs — they can beat them.

And we may have not seen the end of this series this season. Per The Ringer, the two teams are on pace to meet each other in the first round of the AFC playoffs. Starting this season, there are seven playoff teams in the conference, and only the No. 1 seed gets a first-round bye. The No. 2 seed plays the No. 7 seed in the first round. As fate would have it, with six weeks to go in the regular season, the 9-1 Chiefs are the No. 2 seed and the 6-4 Raiders are the No. 7 seed.

How do you feel about that? Do you want another crack at the Chiefs in the postseason or would you rather play another opponent in the first round? Take our poll and express your thoughts in the comment section below. Thanks for playing along.
