Week 11 saw all four AFC West teams in action. Here’s how Sunday’s games played out for the Oakland Raiders and the rest of the division.

Through Week 11 of the 2019 NFL season, the AFC West remains among the most competitive divisions in the NFL, with the Oakland Raiders and Kansas City Chiefs in a tight race for the top spot. Sunday’s games undoubtedly had implications on the playoff picture, as did Monday night.

The Raiders hosted the winless Cincinnati Bengals, while the Chiefs traveled to Mexico City for a divisional matchup with the Los Angeles Chargers in primetime on Monday Night Football. The Denver Broncos returned from their bye with a road trip against the Minnesota Vikings.

Before all was said and done, the Raiders and Chiefs find their matchup in two weeks the most important game on their schedule right now. Of course, Oakland has to take care of business against the New York Jets next Sunday, but if they do that, first place will be on the line when they head to Kansas City to take on the Chiefs coming off their bye week.

Here’s the week that was for the AFC West, starting off with the surging Raiders.
