Latest Las Vegas NFL
In the regular season finale the 49ers looked good. The offense showed up, the defense held strong, and the special teams chipped in as they beat a Cardinal team that entered the game with a chance to earn home field advantage throughout the playoffs.
The 2014 Oakland Raiders season ended on Sunday in Denver at Sports Authority Field at Mile High with a 47-14 loss to the Broncos. The Raiders just struggled in almost every facet of the game as they lost their eighth road game of the season and their 11th overall dating back to 2013.
On Sunday in Kansas City the Chargers were simply outplayed by a Chiefs team that was also playing for its playoff life. With their 19-7 win and season sweep of the Bolts, Kansas City eliminated the Chargers and claimed second place in the AFC West outright. That is probably little relief, however, as the Chiefs will also be in for a long off-season.
Those are just the games with playoff implications as to which teams get in etc., while several other games will determine final playoff seeds and first-round byes.
In the regular season finale it’s no surprise that both the 49ers and Cardinals have a lot of players listed as injured. Arizona has one big player injured, but otherwise should see most of their team play. San Francisco has no real surprises, but have seen injuries effect them all season.
The Dallas Cowboys have already locked up a playoff spot, but Jason Garrett said that they will not rest their stars. Here is a look at the Dallas Cowboys vs. Washington Redskins injury report.
The Oakland Raiders have one more game in 2014 before they pack it in for the winter, and many of the same players still have injuries either keeping them out of practice or game day itself. The best news is that rookie quarterback Derek Carr is ready to go for Sunday after experiencing an undisclosed illness.
The Oakland Raiders have always played the Denver Broncos, the Kansas City Chiefs and the San Diego Chargers—dating back to the inaugural 1960 season of the American Football League. The Silver & Black even have played these three foes six times in the playoffs, as the rivalries run deep. The 2014 season closes with yet another big rivalry game for the Raiders—at Denver.
Going into Sunday’s second meeting of the season between the long-time AFL rivals (Kansas City won earlier this season 23-20), the stakes could not be any higher.
