    Yes, it's a divisional game. Yes, it's the Rayduhs. What are your thoughts about today's game? It's a tale of two teams, seemingly going in two different directions, and when this all plays out, hopefully it ends up being a much-needed win for the Bolts! Chargers need to come out firing on all cylinders, and approach this game a bit differently. This game could also be a comedy of errors, and it ends up being a game won by the team making the least amount of mistakes. With that being said, it is going to be a hotly contested game. GO BOLTS!!! May the football gods favor the Blue & Gold, and take the wind out of the sails from those Oak town jokers!!!

    Hey Pointy,
    I was pleasantly surprised to see that over on 538, they gave the Chargers a 36% chance to win.

    Given the Chargers' maddening inability to finish games this year, mediocre roster, dopey head coach,
    unbelievable season-ending injuries, plus the relative rise of the Raiders, and the fact that it's in Oakland...
    geez, I would have expected lower than 36%.

    I actually agree, though. :D
    In fact, though--on paper--almost everything appears to favor the Raiders, this time,
    I think that Rivers & Co. have been playing surprisingly well (well, for 58 minutes a week, anyway).

    So, while I don't really expect the Chargers to sneak out of Oakland with a win,
    I can't say that I'd be shocked by a 30-28 Charger victory...

    Today's the day we finally see what we got with Bosa.

    Hopefully Pagano & Co. have dreamt up 10 different ways to try using him...

    Chargers ILB Denzel Perryman (shoulder) inactive vs. Raiders. Others: RT Barksdale, TE Cleveland CB Flowers, S Addae, LB Dzubnar, C Tuerk.

    Joey Bosa ‏@jbbigbear Oct 7
    All of my preparation has led to this – Ready to #BoltUp [​IMG][​IMG]@Official_METRx #TeamMETRx #sp

    Chargers ILB Korey Toomer was on Raiders' practice squad last month. Today, he's listed as starter vs. OAK in place of Denzel Perryman.

    Speaks to Chargers' confidence in Antonio Gates' hamstring: only two other TEs (Henry, McGrath) active. Henry should see more snaps, though.

    When exactly did Perryman get hurt? I saw no mention of this earlier in the week.

    This is the type of game that Norv Turner would find a way to win just to save his job, and the continue to c tease us for another 3 years.

    Does it matter? The Chargers are now the exact mimic of the Raiders of 2002 to 2012 era, which means they are back to being their own true selves as they were in between the Bobby Ross's era and that of the Marty the Schotty ;)

    No hope with Steve Williams on Amari Cooper. No hope at all.
