Chat here with other Raiders fans during the Colts vs Chargers Monday night match-up.

It's Monday Night Football and it's a division rival playing in it. So, of course Raiders fans should be interested in how things go down. The Colts travel to San Diego to take on the Chargers in their week 6 match-up.

The Raiders lost to the Colts in the season opener in Indianapolis and beat the Chargers two weeks ago at home. So, by that logic, the Colts should handle the Chargers pretty easily. If only that's how it worked. That's why the games are played.

The Chargers have one of the worst passing defenses in the NFL and the Colts have Andrew Luck who is making his Monday Night Football debut. The Colts are 4-1 and on a three-game win streak.  Two of those wins came against the 49ers and the Seahawks which makes the way the Raiders hung around in the game a bit more impressive. It was a good indication early on of how good the Raiders defense was going to be this season.

If the Chargers lose, they will be tied with the Raiders for third in the AFC West at 2-4. If they can pull off the win, the Raiders would be in sole possession of last place in the AFC West.

It should be a good game.
