Poll results: Readers go with Raiders

Look where the focus of the NFL is this week. Well, if it isn’t the good ol’ AFC West.

That’s what happens when the second half of the season starts with a three-way tie for first place with a modest 4-4 record and two of those teams kick off the second half on a Thursday night.

Our hot button topic this week is what team will win the division. Ashley Fox thinks the Oakland Raiders will win the division. John Clayton is picking the San Diego Chargers. The two teams -- which are tied with Kansas City (Denver is a game out at 3-5) -- will play Thursday night in San Diego.

There is a poll to go along with Fox and Clayton’s debate. We got a jump on the topic Tuesday with our own poll.

Our readers think the Raiders will win the division. Nearly 10,000 votes were tallied and as of 6:30 p.m. ET, 34 percent of the voters believe in Oakland. San Diego received 25 percent, Denver received 24 percent and Kansas City received 17 percent of the votes.

With half the season remaining, it is clear this race is wide open. Thanks to everyone who participated.
