My Prediction: With the recent struggles of both the Raiders and Chargers, the AFC West is completely wide open. They are tied with the Chiefs for first place while the Broncos are only a game back. It’s starting to look like the NFC West before this year. Raiders RB Darren McFadden will be out another week, so more pressure will be put on Carson Palmer who looked a little better last week than he did against the Chiefs. The Chargers have all sorts of problems on defense giving up an average of 31.6 points a game in their last 3, all loses. With their defenses woes and the fact that Philip Rivers throws too many interceptions, I think the Raiders are getting too many points.
