It never seems to end for the 2014 Oakland Raiders: They always have a ton of players on the official injury report each week. That’s not the primary reason the Silver & Black can’t win a game, of course, but it’s been a consistent theme this year for the last winless team in the NFL.
The San Diego Chargers have lost three straight games, the last two by whopping margins. Does this mean the winless Oakland Raiders have a chance to beat them? The Silver & Black came close in the teams’ first matchup in Oakland, but this Week 11 contest will be in San Diego. There are always a lot of Raiders fans in San Diego, though, so maybe this is Oakland’s chance to get into the win column and avoid a 16-game losing streak.
While the Bolts are far from out of the playoff hunt, their road to the post-season looks to be much more daunting now then it did about a month or so ago.
The Oakland Raiders have a new head coach, for now, and they’ve just had their bye week. How will they fare against the 4-1 San Diego Chargers at home this week? Well, the Bolts are on a roll, and they look very good. The exact opposite can be said of Silver & Black, so don’t expect things to suddenly get better for Oakland now that Dennis Allen has been fired.
If you had to rate San Diego’s 30-21 win Sunday at home over Seattle on an importance scale of 1 to 10, give it an 11.
Being the sixth and final seed in the NFL playoffs usually means you’re a sizable underdog. When it comes to the San Diego Chargers, that holds true a second weekend straight.
