Questions are still swirling about the status of head coach Lane Kiffin’s job, but that hasn’t stopped the Raiders from playing well the past two weeks. Oakland beat division rivals Kansas City in Week 2 and nearly beat the undefeated Bills in Buffalo last week. With the Chargers seemingly getting back on track after beating the Jets at home in Week 3, it’s hard to like the Raiders this Sunday, especially without injured rookie running back Darren McFadden. Assuming the defense can once again create big plays like they did last Monday night against the Jets, San Diego should roll. We predict the Chargers over the Raiders, 30-17.
