Greetings, Raider Nation! It’s time for Game 2 of this special Saturday NFL doubleheader. This game will be an AFC West showdown between two teams the Raiders are looking up at in the standings, the Chefs and the Chargers.

The Chargers will have the unique distinction of playing their 15th straight away game today, the only team to have gone a full season without playing in front of a single home fan. The Chargers do have one fan- his name is Jeff and he lives in Mission Viejo, but traffic is a real bear on weekends so he doesn’t make it down to the games.

This game will be played at Arrowhead Stadium though, so the Chargers will get their accustomed full dose of hostility from the crowd. Will the Chiefs be able to run through the stout Charger defense, or will Phyllis Rivers keep up his run of stellar play and knock the Chiefs off the top of the division?

This game, like the one before it, will be broadcast live in the NFL Network.
