First Thursday night game of the season and it's an old AFC West showdown.
Oakland @ San Diego - The Raiders come into this game and the big question is how much of the offense has Carson Palmer learned? We know that there will not be any Run DMC for this game, so Bush has got to have a monster game if they want to win. Where is Darius Heyward-Bey when you need him? If he gets some run tonight, look for a decent game from him. Palmer made some good throws last week but will need to replicate more than a few of those this week. Note to Palmer, make sure you throw to the same color jersey tonight. The Chargers come in off a close loss to the Packers where Philip Rivers seemed to bounce back after a tough start. A total of 6 TDs that game, but 2 of them to the Packers is a performance that he can't repeat. He'll have Mathews back tonight and hopefully (he's on my fantasy team) he'll hold up and not re-injure that groin. If he does, look for Tolbert to bounce around, over, and through some Raider defenders. No Malcolm Floyd may means a lot more balls going to Vincent Jackson. Can Rivers prove to us that he can close the deal? This is a home game, he better or the 'boos' might be coming out tonight. Winner - Chargers.
Who you got?!?!?!?
