A loss to the Chiefs on Sunday didn't eliminate the Raiders from the AFC playoff race, but it came close. From a mathematical standpoint, the 5-7 Raiders have about a 1 percent chance of making the postseason.
That might not sound like a lot, but it was enough to give Lloyd Christmas hope, so it's enough to give Raiders coach Jack Del Rio hope that his team can sneak into the postseason.
"I think we're a 1 percent chance or something. That's not real good odds," Del Rio said on Monday, via the San Francisco Chronicle. "It's kind of like the Dumb and Dumber deal: So we still have a chance?"
Lloyd had a one-in-a-million chance of landing Mary Swanson.
To even have a shot at the postseason, the Raiders would likely have to win each of their final four games, which would mean beating Denver, Green Bay and Kansas City. The Raiders also play the Chargers, but that game seems slightly more winnable than the other three.
Theoretically, the Raiders could still get into the playoffs with a 7-9 or 8-8 record, but not even Lloyd Christmas would give that a chance of happening.
