The Oakland Raiders have been busy since last week.

Last Thursday, on the final Thursday Night Football game of the season, they beat the San Diego Chargers in thrilling fashion 23-20, in what was Charles Woodson's final game at O.co Coliseum.

With the win, Head Coach Jack Del Rio's team now owns an overall record of 7-8 and look to notch their eighth win of the season Sunday afternoon against the Kansas City Chiefs.

Kickoff at Arrowhead Stadium is now scheduled for 1:25 p.m., but before the Silver and Black wrap up the 2015 regular season, let's get you caught up on the week that was.

Charles Woodson Goes Out In Style

Last Thursday night was surely a night to remember, not only for Charles Woodson, but also for Raider Nation as a whole.

The Raiders beat the Chargers in overtime, but the true narrative of the evening surrounded Woodson and the final game he would play at O.co Coliseum after announcing that he would retire at the end of the 2015 season.

From pregame introductions, to addressing the crowd at the end of the game, Woodson was spectacular, and the evening served as a fitting tribute for one of the greatest players to ever wear the Silver and Black.


Raiders Prepare For Clash With Kansas City Chiefs

After their win over the Bolts, the Raiders have just one more game left on their 2015 schedule – Sunday's matchup at Arrowhead Stadium against the Kansas City Chiefs. 

Andy Reid's team hasn't lost a football game since mid-October, but the Silver and Black are trying to buck that trend and ensure that that the Chiefs don't end the regular season as AFC West champions.

Heading into the Week 17 game, Raiders.com highlighted three matchups that would be critical in how the season finale shakes out.
