Poll: Who are the Raiders’ biggest AFC West rivals?

New, comments

My guess is it’s either the Broncos or the Chiefs

NFL: Oakland Raiders at Denver Broncos
Raiders’ fans in Denver
Ron Chenoy-USA TODAY Sports

This is the first of back-to-back rivalry weeks at SB Nation. I thought I would kick it off with the most basic, but most important question when it comes to being a fan of the Raiders: What division rival do you most despise? I know it’s difficult because the disdain is a strong three-headed monster.

My guess is that most Raiders fans hate the Denver Broncos. I’ve covered this rivalry for the past 16 years and it runs deep. Yet, I wouldn’t be surprised if the Chiefs win (lose) this poll because the rivalry has a rich history and the Chiefs are currently the best team in the NFL. Having a team in the division win the Super Bowl is the worst, so I’m sure the hate burns hot these days in the Raider Nation.

I think the Chargers’ hate is the least of the three, basically because they haven’t been as good as the other two teams over the years. The Chargers are the only team in the AFC West never to a win a Super Bowl.

I’m sure you all have thoughts here. Take our poll and fill up the comment section.
