BEST BETS

HA: OAK

Honestly, when you have to consider the points, there's not a pick I love here, but the Raiders are a hot team and the Bengals haven't showed up in weeks. Considering the way Josh Jacobs is running the ball right now, Gruden's commitment to it and the Bengals having no apparent interest in defending the run, the Raiders giving 10 1/2 Sunday feels about as safe as it gets.

AA: KC

The Chiefs' grip on the AFC West is suddenly tenuous, making me hesitant to declare these two teams heading in opposite directions this season. And perhaps I have Philip Rivers and the Bolts' failures late last week on Thursday Night Football stuck in my head. Even so, it's fair to say he and Pat Mahomes are headed in opposite directions. Ultimately, I trust Mahomes and Andy Reid to have the Chiefs ready to bounce back in a Mexico City fiesta more than I trust Rivers, Anthony Lynn and their disjointed offense.

LAST WEEK'S RESULTS (SU / ATS / BEST BETS)

HA: 7-5 / 7-4-1 / 0-1

AA: 7-5 / 7-4-1 / 1-0

SEASON RESULTS

HA: 88-49-1 / 63-73 / 3-7

AA: 82-53-1 / 65-71 / 7-3

NEW YORK - On Wednesday, ESPN's Adam Schefter reported that the NFL owners proposed to expand the playoffs to seven teams in each conference as a part of a new collective bargaining agreement. It isn't official yet, but the change would result in only one team receiving a first-round bye. What a heinously awful idea. The truth of the matter is that there are barely enough quality teams to fill ...

FRISCO, Texas - Dallas Cowboys' Hall of Fame receiver Michael Irvin wants one thing known about the Dak Prescott-Tom Brady rumors that he inflamed over weekend: "just cause he repeated it, doesn't mean he believes it." Irvin, who now works for the NFL Network, not so innocently commented on a Boston radio station late last week about the possibility of the Cowboys swapping out Prescott for ...

NEW YORK - The NFL's 32 owners paraded silently out of the Conrad New York Downtown on Thursday with an unspoken message for the league's players: Your move. The owners voted in a two-hour meeting to approve the principal elements of a new collective bargaining agreement. And that could be the encouraging first step toward an imminent agreement with the NFL Players' Association, which is ...

Jets legend Mark Gastineau is still fired up about Michael Strahan surpassing his sack record almost two decades ago. Strahan currently holds the record for most sacks in a season with 22.5, just half a sack more than Gastineau's 22, which he set in 1984 with Gang Green. The play that gave Strahan the sack record wasn't your typical sack on a quarterback. Then-Packers quarterback Brett Favre ...

As a free agent a year ago, defensive back Tyrann Mathieu sensed something unique about the Chiefs. There was a feeling around the franchise that coach Andy Reid had fostered, setting it apart from others in the NFL. Mathieu explained that special climate while on the "At Home with Linda and Drew Scott" podcast. "He made it feel like a family atmosphere. He made everybody feel like they were a ...
