This really easy to calculate for two teams in the same division since their schedules are near identical.
Difference 1. Chiefs play the Raiders while the Raiders play the Chiefs. But we don't care about the tiebreaker unless the have identical records. These cancel out.
Diffence 2. AFC east opponents. We play the Bills while the
Raiders play Miami. Small difference by the end of the season.
Difference 3. AFC South opponents. We play the Colts while the Raiders play Jacksonville. The Colts are going to have a much stronger record than Jax by the end of the season. This difference will be decisive.
We will have the stronger SOS and will draft after the Raiders if we are tied.
