The Chargers’ resurgence has improved their record to 4-5, and a win on Thursday Night Football against the Oakland Raiders is key in getting back on the playoff race.
Coming off back to back wins, the Chargers are now back in business after a slow start. Their schedule gets tougher, but they have an opportunity to run the table with five divisional games remaining.
Winning most of those five is crucial, and they need to start by beating their bitter rivals in their last game at the Oakland Coliseum. Not many people expected Oakland to be good this season, but Jon Gruden’s team has come together and managed to be .500 after nine weeks.
This will be the team’s second prime time game this season, this time on a short week. Since they play Thursday, it may help them keep the momentum from the win against the Packers. It also helps that the team managed to leave the game with almost no injuries, and the extra time to recover after Thursday’s game may be very beneficial for a team that’s starting to get healthy.
Without further ado, let’s get into the bold predictions for Thursday Night Football.
