|Avg Points Allowed||27.9||21.9|
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.
