After a week of picking games without worrying about what the Raiders might do, we are back in action with a really tough call. The Raiders are in San Diego to face the high powered Chargers offense and top ten pass defense. Both teams have won two games this season, but with one fewer losses, the Raiders are ahead in the division over the Chargers. It makes for a tough call.
It's also a tight race for the top spot among the staff. Nitesh jumped up to tie for the lead with an impressive 11-3 mark last week. While Tyler fell farther behind with the week's only losing record (6-8).
This week we have just three unanimous picks. We all have the Bills taking out the hapless Jags, the Falcons dominating the limping Titans, and the Cardinals taking the Monday Night match-up over the toothless Ravens. As for the Raiders game, the staff is 4-2* in favor of the Raiders winning in San Diego. Myself and Marcus are the outliers who think the Chargers will be too much for the Raiders to handle.
