San Diego Chargers at Oakland Raiders: Prediction, preview, pick to win

Plus, the team lost staring cornerback Jason Verrett for the season this week, one of seeral key players (including running back Danny Woodhead and wideout Keenan Allen) that have been lost for the year.

"It's executing on both sides of the ball, " quarterback Philip Rivers said.

But the Chargers never got that stop as the Raiders ran 15 plays, 14 of them on the ground, and drove 53 yards, but most importantly were able to run out the clock and hold on for the 34-27 win to clinch the franchise's third trip to the Super Bowl. "Because, when you turn the film on and you see that defense running around, that's definitely not what it looks like". Stick around. We've got all of the pre-game analysis before the divisional battle.

Del Rio and his squad will stay at home to take on the Kansas City Chiefs next week. "I get so fired up that I have to just calm myself down". In their only home game this season, the Atlanta Falcons really dominated them, in what is their only loss of the season.

But, Raiders head coach Jack Del Rio says the Chargers - despite all their problems - are a unsafe football team. The Chargers' defense figures to have an even more hard time preserving leads as Jason Verrett announced on Wednesday that he was finished for the season due to a partially torn ACL in his left knee.

"We need to win at home, there's no doubt about that, " Carr said. "That opens up a lot of great avenues for us".

Sunday, October 9, the San Diego Chargers play visitor to the Oakland Raiders. Fortunately, they have been up to the task so far this season.

Murray missed practice all week and the expectation all along has been that DeAndre Washington would lead Oakland's backfield in Week 5, with Jalen Richard factoring in a fair share as well.

CHARGERS defense limited high-powered Saints offense to 275 yards in Week 4.

"I never look at someone's record and say that's who they are". "Of course it's a huge game, division rivals".

Now facing their largest deficit of the season, the Chargers drove down the field in hopes of cutting the lead, only to have Fouts threw his second red zone interception of the game, with Raiders safety Burgess Owens being the culprit this time, as he picked off Fouts' pass intended for John Jefferson at the one-yard-line.

"I've been looking forward to this for a long time".

While we're sure many are excited to see Bosa get his first National Football League action, it couldn't have come against a tougher offensive line than the Oakland Raiders.
