Opponent Profile: Can The Raiders Beat Suddenly Sinking Chargers?

The San Diego Chargers have lost three straight games, the last two by whopping margins. Does this mean the winless Oakland Raiders have a chance to beat them? The Silver & Black came close in the teams’ first matchup in Oakland, but this Week 11 contest will be in San Diego. There are always a lot of Raiders fans in San Diego, though, so maybe this is Oakland’s chance to get into the win column and avoid a 16-game losing streak.

Raiders Could Take Advantage of Injured Chiefs Secondary

The Raiders still have injuries but most of their key personnel are healthy and able to play on Sunday. The Chiefs are without wide receiver Dwayne Bowe who is one of their best players. A storied rivalry, these two teams also have the worst records in the NFL. The loser will gain a better pick in the 2013 NFL draft.
