#5 Las Vegas Raiders make the playoffs
It’s no secret that the Las Vegas Raiders have improved immensely since 2019. The team's beefed-up abilities might not be enough to take them to the championships, but a playoff run isn't impossible. In fact, with the defense ramping up their play in the last couple of games and Derek Carr coming up clutch when needed, it should come as little surprise that this might be the year the Raiders make it to the postseason.
Think about it! The Raiders are running second in their division right now, and unless they outright implode, a wildcard spot could be on the horizon. Then again, the Raiders' win over the Chiefs a few weeks ago was imposing and could open the door to the Raiders retaking their division in the coming months of the season. Either way, they are in!
