The Oakland Raiders and San Diego Chargers will finish out their seasons on Sunday from Qualcomm Stadium. CBS will carry this game in select markets with kickoff occurring at 4:25 pm EST.
It would be a nice story line to say someone could save their job here but the Chargers are expected to fire head coach Norv Turner and general manager A.J. Smith shortly after this game. The fate of Raiders first year coach Dennis Allen may be the same.

Avg Points Allowed
San Diego won the first meeting of these two teams in Week 1 by a score of 22-14. At one point the Chargers seemed to be in control of the AFC West but suddenly find themselves at 6-9. The Chargers haven’t made the playoffs since 2009. Needing over 500 yards though the air Phillip Rivers will likely finish under 4,000 yards passing for the first time since 2007.
Oakland will start Terrelle Pryor at quarterback on Sunday. It will be his first NFL start. With Pryor under center the Raiders are likely the run the ball often but running back Darren McFadden is averaging just 3.3 yards per carry. The Raiders have lost seven of their last eight games.

Oakland Raiders (4-11) at San Diego Chargers (6-9)
Aside from this being a divisional matchup, this is a completely meaningless game for these two teams. Both are out of the playoffs by a long shot. I have a rule against making significant plays on completely meaningless games. If the teams might not care about a game, I shouldn’t either. There’s just no way to predict what kind...
