Pregame: San Diego @ Oakland

The Chargers and Raiders games have always been close games and this shouldn't be any different. The Raiders and Chargers both have new Quarterbacks but the difference is Rivers hasn't started an NFL game.

Keys on Offense
San Diego has one of the toughest defensive front sevens in the NFL. It will be difficult to come out and run the ball on them right away so the real key here is to establish the passing game to loosen up the defense. San Diego's biggest weakness is their secondary so if we can score quickly through the air, it will make it easier to run the ball and could also take LT out of the game if we build an early lead.

Keys on Defense
Force Rivers to win the game with his arm. Antonio Gates is a stud but the Chargers don't have a strong core of receivers. If we put 8 guys in the box to stop LT and get a decent pass rush on, we can force Rivers to make some mistakes and with our speedy defense we may be able to score some defensive points.

Prediction
Raiders 24
Chargers 17

That injury could really hurt their team. Hopefully it's not as serious as it looks.

I had heard it would 2-4 weeks before he returns... Season is over for the chiefs I think.
