Chargers vs Raiders: Predictions


Here are some of my predictions for tonight’s match-up against the Oakland Raiders. It should be a fun game for us:

  • There will be at least 3 interceptions in this game. Combine Philip Rivers of this year and Carson Palmer straight off the couch in one game and you are sure to get some turnover nastiness.
  • Vincent Jackson goes off again for 120+ yards and a score.
  • Antwan Barnes continues his chase for a starting spot and adds a couple of sacks and 8 tackles. Newly acquired Everette Brown shows his presence on the defensive front and adds pressures and a sack.
  • Richard Seymour will do something in the game that will make us hate him more than we already do.
  • Antoine Cason will be able to keep his job as the starter for at least one more week after performing well tonight.
  • Richard Goodman will return a kickoff past the 20. He will come within inches of another blocked punt.
  • Vincent Brown will have us buzzing about placing him as the starter over injury prone Malcom Floyd.
  • There will be a ridiculous amount of flags thrown by the refs today. We actually won’t be the team that is most penalized in the game.
  • The Chargers blow out the Raiders and some of those fans that went into hiding will suddenly rise up again.

What predictions do you have for the game?

    There will be baffling plays and turnovers by us.

    The Raiders will essentially beat themselves and we win.

    Cason will play well, Tommy Harris, Butler, and Barnes have great games.

    Mathews will leave the game early.

    Phillip will have 2 t/o.

    VJ and Gates will both score.

    Goodman doesnt get past the 25 on returns.

    Novak continues his awesome kicking.

    Unless we play a complete game, blow them out, and show vast improvement, i will take no confidence away from this game that we have any shot past the regular season this year.
