The second game of Monday Night Football is going to probably be a lousy game. The Chargers just aren’t all that great in our eyes. QB Philip Rivers is overrated as a quarterback, and he isn’t going to have his top target from these last few years in WR Vincent Jackson. The defense for the Bolts isn’t all that great, and RB Ryan Mathews isn’t going to be in the fold for the rushing game. Oakland has a lot of problems at the wide receiver position, but QB Carson Palmer is going to have a full offseason under his belt, and he has a defense that has the ability to lead the team as well. We have a lot of confidence in home field advantage in this one as well, as the residents of the Black Hole just badly need to start off this campaign with a victory. This could be the start of something big in Oakland this year.
Chargers @ Raiders Pick: Oakland Raiders -1
Chargers @ Raiders Score Prediction: Oakland 21 – San Diego 14
