Opponent Profile: San Diego Chargers Present Big Challenge For Toothless Raiders

The Oakland Raiders have a new head coach, for now, and they’ve just had their bye week. How will they fare against the 4-1 San Diego Chargers at home this week?

6 NFL Teams That Could Be Worse Than The Raiders

The Silver and Black also compete in a division where every other squad made the playoffs last year, prompting some to say they are already out of contention this season. Really? It may take everything breaking right for Raider Nation to make a playoff appearance, but surely there are teams with less upside than Oakland. Here are a few of the potential challengers for the NFL cellar.
