Morning Dump

By Ernie Padaon

Hope everyone enjoyed their weekend. At least we didn’t lose this weekend. We took care of that on Thursday. Too bad we didn’t fire a couple of people during that weekend though!

The Raiders take control of the AFC West as Denver comes back from the dead and San Diego continues its slide.

The Raiders’ dominating performance on Thursday night against the Chargers put them a half-game ahead of Kansas City for first place in the AFC West. The Raiders just needed Tim Tebow and the Broncos to defeat Kansas City on the road in order to take a one game lead and full ownership of the division. The Broncos obliged, physically pummeling the Chiefs all day long with a grueling rush attack.

The Chargers are a talented team, but they have not played up to their abilities. They have lost games in crazy ways. The Chargers have outgained their opponents by 63 yards per game and been outscored by an average of only 1.3 points per game.
