Oakland Raiders vs. San Diego Chargers: Live Game Thread

The Oakland Raiders (1-3) will take on the San Diego Chargers (2-2) at the O.co Coliseum on Sunday night in a primetime matchup that was pushed back due to a scheduling conflict with baseball. Instead of the normal 1:25 start time, kickoff will be at 8:35.

The Raiders are starting so late because the Coliseum grounds crew needs ample time to be able to transform the stadium from baseball to football after the A’s played Game 2 of the ALDS on Saturday night. It typically takes 18-20 hours for the transformation to take place, so they have been working through the night and will still be working well into the afternoon.

This means the game will be nationally televised, and the entire country will be tuning in to watch the Raiders and Chargers battle it out in one of the fiercest rivalries in the NFL.

Terrelle Pryor will be making his first start since sustaining a concussion two weeks ago against the Broncos. Pryor’s backup, Matt Flynn, started against the Redskins last week, and did not fare well. In fact, Flynn has been demoted to third string by the Raiders.

For the Chargers, they are at .500 early on in the season after defeating the Cowboys last week. Phillip Rivers has gotten off to an impressive start, along with wide receiver Antonio Gates.

    A Great Season By Lamarr Houston Could Get Expensive For The Oakland Raiders

  • Samuel Charles

    Halftime

    Terrelle Pryor 17-0 Josh Freeman

    • Duston Downum

      With Pryor playing the way he is, we don’t need Freeman! McGloin can be the #2 as long as Pryor keeps running and gunning like this.

  • Duston Downum

    SACK!!!! Kevin Burnett getting the second sack of the night following Houston’s! Really proving his worth this season!

  • Samuel Charles

    dj hayden with the forceout under review… 17-7.. or 17-0 charger ball

    huge call..

    could be the biggest play of his young career if they overturn this..

    all after a blocked fg goes for a first…

    crazy game this football

  • Samuel Charles

    OVERTURNED…

    3rd and 7 at the 12

    17-0

  • Samuel Charles

    COUNT ON CHUCK TO MAKE BIG PLAYS>>>>>>>>>>

  • Duston Downum

    WOODSON BABY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! OAKTOWN’S FINEST!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Duston Downum

    Sims and Walker doing a fine job plugging the gaps and stuffing the run

  • Samuel Charles

    mike jenkins should be cut for that penalty…

    announcers not even talking about it..

    that penalty was the biggest play of this game

    • Samuel Charles

      it would’ve been 1st and 15 at the raider 35 yard line

    • Duston Downum

      Such a ridiculous and rookie penalty. He let his temper get the better of him.

  • Alvin Chandra

    Good butler! Very good butler

    • Samuel Charles

      i thought terrelle was dancing in a mirror

      • Alvin Chandra

        Good have so far, but at this pace Mcgloin will get his first NFL start in week 8. #injury

        • Samuel Charles

          i’m allergic to the i word…

          he’s built out of red devil juice

        • Duston Downum

          God man, don’t say that.. He was doing really well getting out of bounds and getting down, but we needed him to step up and start making plays again. Unfortunately they have been stuffing him..

  • Duston Downum

    WELCOME TO THE LEAGUE MR. HAYDEN!!!! FIRST CAREER INT!!!!

  • Alvin Chandra

    My prediction b4 the have comes true. First career int for dj

    • Samuel Charles

      i prayed for Dj.. and look what happened

      #PrayForDJ

      • Alvin Chandra

        Lol

      • Alvin Chandra

        You keep those prayers coming

  • Duston Downum

    WOODSON!!! WAY TO SEAL THE GAME UP!!!

  • Samuel Charles

    go DJ go DJ go DJ

    &

    Chuck

    cornerback legacy alive and well in Oakland

  • Alvin Chandra

    Game oveeer babbbby! That’s how we roll. Walked all over them chargeless

    • Samuel Charles

      lotta work to do, second half wasn’t up to our high standards..

      but the thunderDolts have their tail between their legs..

      DJ hayden’s on the board

      chuck got his lucky 13 td of his career — and a game sealing pick (which he was smart enough to kneel down on)

      and Pryor played well under pressure again (mostly)

      alex smith is next on the menu

      • Alvin Chandra

        We need mcfaded back! Pryor will get beat up by that though chiefs d.

  • Alvin Chandra

    Goodnight raider nation! It’ll be a good week I can already tell.
