back: the silver and black

With Sunday's 19-16 victory at San Diego, the Oakland Raiders clinched a playoff spot for the first time since 2002, which was the last time the Raiders won an NFL title. They can clinch the AFC West by winning their last two games (at home vs. the Colts, then at Denver), but if they falter they could lose out to the Kansas City Chiefs for the division title based on the head-to-head tiebreaker (the Chiefs beat the Raiders twice this season).

some key performers:

- Derek Carr, QB, 63,5% pass completions, 3705 passing yards, 25 TDs against 6 INTs.

- Latavius Murray, RB, 737 rushing yards, 4.2 yards per carry, 12 rushing TDs.

- Amari Cooper, WR, 74 receptions, 1038 receiving yards, 4 TD catches.

- Michael Crabtree, WR: 77 receptions, 866 receiving yards, 8 TD catches.
