Chargers Gamenight Thread

This has the feel of a potential elimination game.

The sixth seed in the AFC is up for grabs. After this, the Raiders play the Bengals and Jets, and there's no reason for them not to go 2-0 in that stretch.

So if they win tonight, they should be looking at a 7-4 record with five left to play, which would clearly position them to secure a playoff berth.

A loss tonight may not be a nail in the coffin, but it would pin them at 4-5, allow the Chargers to overtake them for second place, and steepen their path significantly.

The Chargers throttled the Packers' passing attack, so they present a worthy foe to Carr & Co. tonight.

Can we get Jacobs more involved in the passing game, get him out in space? He's averaging 9+ yards per reception, yet he's getting just two targets per game.

Regardless, it will probably come down to our secondary. Our secondary ALWAYS makes it interesting. They need to tighten it up tonight and shut Lil' Phil down.

GO RAIDERS!

Lions Thread

Another late post, it’s all tied up in the fourth  quarter, Got to get the lead and the defense cannot be like a stick of butter surrounded by hot knives at the end. Go Raiders!
