American Football Preview

NFL – San Diego vs Oakland

San Diego Chargers v Oakland Raiders

Friday December 25, 9.30 am, Coliseum

The Christmas Round of NFL gets under way with Thursday Night Football from the home ground of the Raiders.

Game rating – Chargers 19 vs Raiders 24

These two AFC West teams clash at the home of the Raiders with the Chargers (4-10) coming off an easy 14-30 win over the Dolphins and the Raiders (6-8) losing at home with distinction against the Packers 30-20.  These two teams met back in Week 7 with the Raiders winning away (37-6).


The Chargers were good last week in beating the Dolphins who are rubbish at the moment.  The effort by the Raiders to test the inform Packers was the better form game and the young Raiders squad is actually in good shape, compared to the Chargers who are carrying over 20 injured players.  Hard to see how the Chargers can reverse a 29 point drubbing on their home dig back in Round 7-Raiders to win.
