Gary Kubiak tells Broncos he's retiring after emotional win over Raiders

The Silver and Black squandered their first AFC West title since 2002, and a first-round bye in the playoffs, in a 24-6 blow-out loss to the Denver Broncos Sunday afternoon.

The Denver Broncos are only one year removed from winning the Super Bowl, but it seems they'll be looking for a new head coach after Sunday's game. Including his eight seasons with Houston, his career record is 87-77. Only Norm Van Brocklin (173) coached more games without winning a division in National Football League history. He was diagnosed with a "complex migraine condition" and was away from the team for a week following his hospital stay and did not coach the team in its October 13 game in San Diego.

Cook played fairly well overall, but committed an early costly fumble that Denver recovered and turned into 7 points on Oakland's first possession of the second half. In 2013, while with the Texans, he collapsed on the field and was diagnosed with a mini-stroke. Their season-ending performance suggested the Broncos were too good a team to be sitting at home for the playoffs.

MILLER VS. MACK: Oakland coach Jack Del Rio worked with Miller as Denver's defensive coordinator and now has an elite pass rusher in Khalil Mack, who has 11 sacks.

Kubiak's offensive philosophies are rooted in Bill Walsh's West Coast system featuring the zone-blocking schemes that the Broncos fine-tuned in the 1990s and 2000s. McGloin got the start in Week 17 against the Denver Broncos and finished with 21 yards on 6-of-11 passing.

As for Sunday's result providing any clues as to who would be the favored team in a potential GSW-CLE III, pump the brakes. He's averaging 24.1 points and hitting 39.9 percent of his 3-pointers, still sparkly numbers by most guys' standards.

"It was emotional", said quarterback Trevor Siemian, who threw two TDs passes and an interception.

Siemian suffered injuries to both shoulders and his left foot, forcing him to miss 2½ games.

Without Derek Carr, the offense struggled on the first drive - they started the game with four straight runs plays, with the third one picking up a first down. "But that tells you his character as a man, to keep that to himself, and allow us to play for each other and not for him". Still, the offense has gone stagnant, and there are plenty of question marks heading into next season.

He was replaced by rookie Connor Cook, who was active Sunday for the first time all season. The Steelers continued to run LeBeau's 3-4 defense even though Tomlin emerged as a 4-3 specialist. Instead, the Raiders' loss combined with the Chiefs' victory over the Chargers drops the Raiders into second place and a No. 5 seed with a much longer and tougher road to the Super Bowl that will start next weekend in the wild-card round in Houston.
