The Oakland Raiders went into Lambeau Field and had a difficult road in trying to beat the Green Bay Packers on Sunday, and it became all but impossible with the struggles of Carson Palmer on Sunday. Oakland is now 7-6 on the season.
To make things worse, the Denver Broncos managed another improbable comeback behind Tim Tebow and some massive gaffes by the Chicago Bears, rallying from a ten point deficit in the final two minutes to win 13-10 in overtime thanks to two gigantic Matt Prater game-tying and game-winning 50+ yard field goals. Denver is now at 8-5.
Oakland is now a game behind Denver overall, and actually need to make up two games since the Broncos hold the tiebreaker. The Raiders are also a game behind in the wild-card picture with the New York Jets beating the Kansas City Chiefs; the Steelers/Ravens runner-up will be the obvious first wild-card, while the Jets are holding onto the second seed.
Oakland has some work to do now, and their hopes of winning the division are currently out of their hands.
