ALAMEDA, Calif. -- Oakland coach Jack Del Rio got swamped with congrat

ALAMEDA, Calif. -- Oakland coach Jack Del Rio got swamped with congratulatory messages after the Raiders clinched their first playoff berth in 14 years.Fans had reason for excitement after more than a decade of losing that featured 18 starting quarterbacks, nine head coaches and the second-most losses in the league with 148.Del Rios focus, however, is elsewhere, with the Raiders (11-3) still needing two more wins to clinch the division and a first-round bye once they get to the postseason.Im excited for the fans, Del Rio said Monday. To be in the playoffs, and theres been a drought here. We got here two years ago and talked about winning the division and being in the playoffs. The being in the playoffs part is there, the winning the division is still to be determined. So we need to continue to work on that, let the fans enjoy the other part, but as a team weve got to get back to work.The Raiders had a very successful Sunday as they watched Tennessee beat Kansas City 19-17 on a last-second field goal to knock the Chiefs out of first place in the AFC West, then went out and beat San Diego 19-16 to clinch at least a wild-card spot.Oakland now turns its attention to Saturdays home game against Indianapolis (7-7). With wins over the Colts and then in the season finale at Denver (8-6), the Raiders will win the AFC West. They can also win the division with only one win, as long as the Chiefs lose again.Oakland also can earn the top seed in the AFC with the combination of two wins and a loss by New England.Its a remarkable turnaround for a team that started the 2014 season with 10 straight losses before turning things around after the hiring of Del Rio that offseason.Del Rio came to a franchise that had building blocks in place in quarterback Derek Carr and pass rusher Khalil Mack, the teams top two draft picks in 2014, but little else.But two strong free-agent classes, key draft picks such as receiver Amari Cooper, and development of players still here have helped Oakland become one of the leagues top teams. It made Del Rios proclamation of aiming to win a division a legitimate possibility.It wasnt anything that I saw. We had a lot of work to do, Del Rio said. Its a belief that anything is possible when you get a group of men to believe in each other and to buy in and to work hard. Weve done that. Weve added to the talent base and weve embraced the message.It hasnt come easy this season. The Raiders have needed seven fourth-quarter comebacks to vault to the top of the division, starting with the winning 2-point conversion in the season opener at New Orleans that set the tone for the year.Carr has also led comeback wins over Baltimore, Tampa Bay, Houston, Carolina, Buffalo and San Diego to tie for the second-most fourth-quarter comebacks in a season.He has gotten help from a maligned defense that, despite ranking 31st, allowing 6.07 yards per play, has not allowed a single point on 11 drives in the final five minutes with the opponent having a chance to tie or take the lead.Weve seen glimpses of what were capable of, we want to be in constant pursuit of a perfect performance, and the perfection is not really in the end result, the perfection is in the effort that you give, Del Rio said. Were looking to give tremendous effort, clean up what we can, be very competitive and continue to win situations and win games.---For more NFL coverage: http://www.pro32.ap.org and http://www.twitter.com/AP-NFL Paul Millsap Jersey .Y. -- Sabres forward Drew Stafford has witnessed plenty of turmoil during his eight seasons in Buffalo. DeAndre Bembry Hawks Jersey . The Celtics closed out their first preseason under Stevens on Wednesday night with a 101-97 victory over the Brooklyn Nets, who rested a lot of their lineup including former Celtics Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce. http://www.hawksteamofficial.com/ersan- … ks-jersey/ . -- Stanfords Kevin Danser knelt on one knee and hardly moved on the sideline as Michigan State celebrated its Rose Bowl victory and his Cardinal teammates made their way to the locker room. Mike Bibby Hawks Jersey . Speaking to the Chicago Tribune at baseballs Winter Meetings in Lake Buena Vista, Florida, Boras called the former home of the Expos a "tremendous environment" for baseball. Tracy Mcgrady Jersey . The Lightning are 2-0 so far on a four-game road trip, giving the club five straight wins as the guest and improving Tampas away record this season to 11-8-2.Jordan Henderson would love to be involved in Liverpools Europa League squad but remains wary of another injury setback. Henderson suffered knee ligament damage against Borussia Dortmund in April and was initially ruled out for up to eight weeks, putting his place in Englands Euro 2016 squad in doubt.But the midfielder is back in training and, although he is highly unlikely to feature in the clubs final two Premier League games, a return in the clash with Sevilla on May 18 is not out of the question. Liverpool and Liverpool Ladies players show off their new kit at a ceremony in the city Im hoping it will be sooner rather than later. Im doing everything I can to get back fit as quickly as possible, Henderson told Sky Sports at the launch of Liverpools new 2016-17 home kit.Ive had a good week so far, so hopefully I can have another good week and see where I am at the end of that. Im being very positive, Im working very hard and hopefully its sooner rather than later.That [Europa League final] would be the main priority for me. It would be huge just to be involved and Id love to be a part of thatt if I could.dddddddddddd.At the same time Ive got to make sure that my knee is right because I dont want to do myself further damage. Henderson is hopeful of a place in Englands squad for Euro 2016, which will be announced on Thursday Hendersons quick recovery also boosts his chances of a place in Roy Hodgsons squad for this summers tournament in France, which will be announced on Thursday.Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp said last week he had no doubt the 25-year-old would be available for selection.Hendersons focus remains on a return for Liverpool but when asked about the chance of being selected for Euro 2016, he said: Yes, hopefully. The injury hasnt come at a great time for me but it doesnt really make a difference - its about the [Liverpool] team and the cup final.Whether I am involved or not, I am hoping we put on another good performance and win a trophy.
