Tonight will be the first Thursday night game on NFL Network when the Oakland Raiders travel to San Diego to take on the Chargers. Both teams have struggled recently and are both tied for the division lead at 4-4 with the Kansas City Chiefs. This is a huge divisional match up with the winner getting the 1 game lead to start the second half of the season. My Prediction: I was not a fan of the Carson Palmer pickup, I think Jason Campbell is the better long term QB option and Palmer has not been the same since the 2005 season. Although the Raiders have found their run game and are very aggressive on defense, San Diego has more weapons in the passing game and I look for Phillip Rivers and Vincent Jackson to have a big night. Chargers win this one 27-17.
