Free Pick:

Kansas City needs a win and a Denver loss to improve its playoff position so if the Broncos are up big against the Chargers at halftime, there's a good chance Andy Reid pulls his starters for the second half. But the Chiefs still need to win this game so that it doesn't slip back to the No. 6 seed in the AFC playoff race, assuming the Jets beat the Bills earlier today.

Either way the Raiders are still a pretty intriguing play in an underdog role. They have nothing to play for so there's a possibility they'll come out flat. But that's unlikely given how hard Jack Del Rio's team has played for him this season, plus the fact that this is a division rivalry.

Oakland is 7-2 against the spread in its last nine trips to Kansas City while the road team is 19-7 at the betting window in the last 26 meetings between these two teams. Take the points.
