Patriots Take AFC’s No. 1 Seed After Chiefs Beat Raiders In Week 14 Opener

The New England Patriots are the No. 1 seed in the AFC entering Sunday’s schedule of Week 14 games.

The Patriots, at 10-2, have vaulted over the Oakland Raiders after the Silver and Black lost 21-13 to the Kansas City Chiefs on “Thursday Night Football.”

The Chiefs and Raiders now are 10-3, but Kansas City holds the tiebreaker at the moment in the AFC West race. Oakland now sits in the AFC’s No. 5 spot, which is a wild-card position.

The Patriots have a tough game of their own this week, as they will host the rival Baltimore Ravens at Gillette Stadium on Monday night. The Ravens are tied atop the AFC North with the Pittsburgh Steelers at 7-5.
