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.

Avoiding membership in this exclusive club will be paramount for the Silver & Black.

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? Well, the Bolts are on a roll, and they look very good. The exact opposite can be said of Silver & Black, so don’t expect things to suddenly get better for Oakland now that Dennis Allen has been fired.
