Los Angeles Chargers @ Oakland Raiders, Oakland Coliseum, 8:20 PM, FOX/NFLN (Raiders +1.5, O/U: 48.5)
Where did last week’s Chargers come from? Home underdogs to the Packers and they blow them out in a huge upset. Rivers had a bunch of yards passing in the game but no scores and no picks, Mike Williams went off with only 3 catches but for 111 yards and Melvin Gordon finally came to life with 80 yards and 2 TD’s coupled with Ekeler’s 70 yards. It was powerful, smashmouth football. Ingram and Bosa beasted for 1.5 sacks each on Rodgers and kept him frustrated most of the night. The Raiders have been a shocking solid football team with a few close but good losses. A big win against the Lions at home after being away from home for well over a month and a half and they didn’t disappoint their fans with a big win against the Lions. Carr stayed efficient while throwing for 2 TD’s with Josh Jacobs rushing for over 100 yards and 2 scores. Granted the Lions don’t have a running game and Stafford was forced to throw 40 times, racking up over 400 yards through the air, the defense got after him a bit sacking him twice and picking him off once. Take the Raiders to cover in the win, in the over, Raiders 27-24.
