The San Diego Chargers are an NFL team flying under the radar for the first time in several seasons. That is mostly due to the team not looking quite as good on on paper as they have in previous years. However, Philip Rivers is in the prime of his career and his favorite target, Antonio Gates, is finally expected to be healthy entering the season.
For the Oakland Raiders, Carson Palmer and company hope to contend for a playoff spot in the AFC. Running back Darren McFadden has the potential to become one of the NFL's best if he can stay healthy for an entire season. Last year wide receiver Darrius Heyward-Bey finally started to live up to the hype that made him a first round draft pick in 2009. If he continues to improve throughout this season, the Raiders offense could be a one of the AFC's most dominant.
San Diego Chargers running back Ryan Mathews has been ruled out for this game against the Raiders. He is still recovering from a broken collarbone. Ronnie Brown will fill in as his replacement.
Due to the absence of their starting running back, the San Diego Chargers will enter tonight's game as one point underdogs to the Oakland Raiders.
