The Chargers may still be playing for their playoff lives Sunday afternoon when they face the Raiders. Again, maybe they won't. A Dolphins win at Buffalo in the morning would eliminate the Bolts.
Still, this is one both players, coaches and fans get up for regardless of records or playoff implications. "It's a division game and it's the Raiders," said quarterback Philip Rivers. "We are going to have to be ready for their best shot. They are going to get our best shot."
Head coach Mike McCoy hopes the home crowd will be a big advantage, "We know what this game means to the division and rivalry. It's something our fans should be excited for, so it's a big game for us."
