The Raiders look to remain in first place as they take on the Chargers in San Diego.

Greetings, Raider fans! First place in the AFC West is at stake for Oakland as they go into the friendly confines of San Diego today, looking to go a full game up on the Chiefs in the division. The Tennessee Titans did the Raiders a huge favor knocking off K.C. today, but now the Raiders must do their part.

The Raider defense has a huge test today against the live arm of Philip Rivers, but the San Diego running game will be  without star running back Melvin Gordon. We'll see if they can move the ball on the ground against this Raiders front seven.

On the other side of the ball, a porous San Diego defense must contend with an angry Raiders team which has had plenty of time to rest and seethe after a miserable game in Kansas City. The Raiders will be looking to run the ball down San Diego's throat and Derek Carr will be anxious to drop bombs on their secondary.

Go Raiders!
