The Raiders are on the verge of something they haven't done since 2016.
Oakland currently is riding a three-game winning streak, and the Silver and Black has not won four straight games since rattling off a six-game winning streak three seasons ago. That, coincidentally, was the last time the Raiders made it to the NFL playoffs.
Standing in the way of the Raiders' fourth straight win are the hapless New York Jets. Gang Green is riding a two-game winning streak after beating NFC East also-rans in Washington and the Giants, but New York is 3-3 since quarterback Sam Darnold returned from a bout with mononucleosis.
If the Raiders are looking for an omen on their playoff path, they will play the Jets seven years and two days after former New York QB Mark Sanchez's infamous butt fumble.

It looks like the Raiders have added a veteran running back to their mix.
Jeremy Hill tweeted Sunday morning "I'm a Raider." NFL Media's Ian Rapoport reported Friday that the Raiders hosted Hill for a workout and planned to sign the running back.
Hill, 27, didn't play last season after tearing his ACL in the first game of the 2018 season. He had four carries for 25 yards as a member of the New England Patriots before his season came to a crashing halt.
The former second-round draft pick also only played seven games in 2017. His last full season was 2016, when he rushed for 839 yards and nine touchdowns for the Cincinnati Bengals.
If healthy, Hill can provide a powerful backup option to Josh Jacobs and bring depth to the Raiders' running backs room. He always has had a nose for the end zone, and packs a punch at 230 pounds.
There's no doubt Hill comes with health concerns, and fumbling always has been an issue, but he seems well work the risk for the Raiders.

Absent the ability to actually see his team on a football field, it’s impossible for Raiders coach Jon Gruden to fully appreciate how the offseason addition of some prominent offensive players will lead to improved efficiency in the Red Zone.
Let alone explain in precise details how the speed and explosiveness of first-round pick Henry Ruggs and the versatility of second-round pick Lynn Bowden will translate to more production inside the opponents’ 20-yard line. And in turn, push the Raiders’ scoring average from the 18.8 per game of the last two years to the 24-plus points they need to be a viable playoff contender.
“I’m not going to make any predictions about Ruggs or Bowden until I see them live over the next few weeks,” Gruden said.
