Now, I don't watch football games anymore unless I get invited to a party of some sort. Still one of my favorite sports to watch on TV, but it's not really something I do anymore. I still love sports though! So when I heard that a tie between the Raiders and Chargers meant they would both make the playoffs, I was overly intrigued. The game being on Sunday Night Football I think added more to the intrigue. For me, the notion that the Broncos would be left out of the playoffs while the rest of the division would be moving on was salt-in-the-wound, but still a fun idea. What would coaches decide? Do they want to tie? Would they try to tie if possible? Was a coach going to make a decision late that would put any idea of a tie out of reach?
