For the first Thursday Night Football match up of the year, we get two teams vying to be the class of their division. The San Diego Chargers and the Oakland Raiders will clash. So, who do the experts think will win the game?
David Fucillo over at SB Nation Bay Area likes the Chargers in the AFC West match up.
Oakland Raiders at San Diego Chargers: While I would like to see the Raiders spring the road upset, I just don't see it happening. A short week for a Raiders team that is struggling from the top down is not a good thing. Michael Bush can provide a sound rushing game, but I just don't know if the Raiders can get enough from the passing game to get the victory. PICK: Chargers
Every expert at CBS picks the Chargers in the game, across the board.
Tim Sieck, editor of SB Nation Chicago thinks the Chargers win a close one.
San Diego 21 Oakland 17
Chargers and Raiders have been very frustrating the past few weeks. On a short week, I like the home team so I'll take the Chargers in a close one.
Not many people seem to think the Raiders have a chance in the game, despite the fact that Carson Palmer didn't look half bad in his second game back.
