Broncos can claim AFC West with win; Raiders need help

The Broncos’ 40-14 loss to the Bills and the Raiders’ 16-13 overtime victory over the Chiefs tightened the AFC West race.

Here are the scenarios concerning who could win the division title:

The Broncos (8-7) will win the division if:
• They beat the Chiefs next week.
• Even if the Broncos and Raiders both finish 9-7, Denver would own the tiebreaker based on common games.

The Raiders (8-7) will win the division if:
• They beat the Chargers next week and the Broncos lose to the Chiefs.
• Oakland doesn’t own any tiebreakers over Denver, so it needs to win the division based on overall record.
