It is Raiders Week in San Diego and the Chargers are set to face off against their division rivals, but this game doesn’t have that same feeling as it did in the past. The Raiders have not been relevant in forever! It is not a game that we can take lightly, since the Raiders always give us a good battle, but it just doesn’t have that rivalry feel like it used to.

The Chargers are at a different level now and what Raider Week used to be, is now Bronco Week! That is the team’s rival at this time. That is the team that we are looking to get over the hump on.
For the last 10 years, either the San Diego Chargers or the Denver Broncos have won the AFC West. That is why the Broncos are the biggest division rival.
As much fun as it will be to beat down the Raiders, there will be more satisfaction taking out Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos on a Thursday Night.
We hate the Raiders… just not as much as we hate Peyton and company.
