Oakland Raiders vs. San Diego Chargers

This game is the one of the only two late afternoon games this week. And it will be a big game for both teams. The Oakland Raiders are coming off a bye week after losing to the Broncos in Week Five. The Chargers are coming off a tough loss to the Green Bay Packers in Lambeau Field.

This game will be for second place in the division. The Raiders have been somewhat of a surprise as far as where they are at this point and the Chargers have somewhat disappointed so far this season. But this could be the game to get both teams back on track.

The Raiders have found some light in Derek Carr. He could be something special for the team this season. And with rookie sensation Amari Cooper as a receiving threat, this Raiders team is working towards relevance.

The Chargers still have Phillip Rivers and have added rookie running back Melvin Gordon. The return of Antonio Gates should help Rivers in the passing game.

Being that this is a division game, Broncos fans will be keeping a close eye on who wins this game. The winner will most likely be the team that tries to challenge the Broncos for the AFC West throne.
