Here’s what you need to know: 1.
Who’s in the win column?
Oakland had its biggest win of the season, snapping the Patriots’ six-game winning streak.
The Raiders led 28-0 early in the fourth quarter when Lambo made a 26-yard field goal with 9:58 left in the third quarter.
Lambo then beat Jets safety Nate Allen to a 42-yard pass from White.
The goal was his first of the year, tying him with White for the league lead.
“He’s done a great job,” said Lambo, who has made three field goals of 50 or more yards this season.
“It was a great moment for the team.”
The Raiders won for the third time in four games, beating the Giants and the Dolphins.
The win gave Oakland the best record in the AFC, one win behind New England and one ahead of Miami.
New England finished with a 12-3 record.
The Dolphins have lost six straight.
Why the win?
The Patriots had a chance to win the AFC East after losing to Miami.
The Bills beat the Jets, and the Raiders were in need of a win.
Lambe and White also had touchdowns.
Lamborghinis, white and white receivers Roddy and Josh Lamborghini were the main beneficiaries of Lambo’s touchdown, giving the Raiders a 3-0 lead.
Lamba said he didn’t think about the Patriots getting their revenge until he saw his teammates get big plays on the field.
“I was like, ‘I’ve got to be better,’ ” Lambo said.
“We got to get our backs to the line of scrimmage, we got to go out there and play football.”
The Dolphins (8-6) host New England (8:25 p.m.
ET, ABC) and the Patriots return home for a home game against the Falcons on Thursday night.
Bills coach Doug Marrone said his team will play the Jets (6-8) in the final regular-season game of the regular season on Saturday.
Marrone also said he believes the Patriots will win their division.
“They’re a tough team, I think,” Marrone told reporters.
“Their defense has been very, very good.”
The Bills had the biggest victory of the past five seasons.
They won the division for the first time since 2010, when they lost to the Eagles.
Buffalo was 3-1 when winning in the division last season.
The Patriots, however, are 0-8 in their past five games against AFC teams.
Who else is in the game?
Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski (neck) and cornerback Marcus Gilchrist (hamstring) were out with knee injuries.
Tight end Martellus Bennett (ankle) and running back James White (knee) were also sidelined.
Bills defensive tackle Mario Williams was ruled out.
“If they have to do it, they’ll do it,” Bills running back Matt Asiata said.
Who will be the starter?
The first three players on the Raiders’ injury report were tight end Greg Olsen (knees), cornerback Jalen Ramsey (calf), defensive end Aaron Curry (knae) and safety Michael Huff (ankles).
The Bills’ starter, cornerback Dee Milliner, is questionable.
Who won the game in the first place?
The Chiefs won in Kansas City for the 11th time in their history, beating New England 20-14.
It was the third straight game the Chiefs had a win, and they won the AFC title for the fourth straight year.
They were 13-4 when winning the division in 2013.
New Orleans won it in 2007.
What are the Raiders going to do this week?
The only games that are guaranteed are at home against New England, at Buffalo, at Jacksonville and then at Miami.
What should we know about the Bills’ upcoming schedule?
Buffalo is expected to open its season against Miami on Sept. 15.
Then it is on a two-game road trip to start the regular- season against the Jets and the Jets are expected to win their final three games, including their season opener.
The Jaguars have three games against the Dolphins in Week 12 and Week 15.
