The Raiders scored 63 with 14:30 left in the 4th. Hot dang!

Their D has played really well, although it was against Stick and not Herbert. SD OL has been roughed up. Their O finally came alive too, which no one would have expected after last week.


But Staley needs to be let go. Wasnt it like 42-0 at halftime? I would have just let him go then. He has been a horrible coach for them and their D has always been trash since he's been there. Which is odd since he was a former D coordinator that was supposed to be the next up and coming hot shot. Guys like Khalil Mack, Kenneth Murray, Asante Samuel JR and Derwin James and yet they are just terrible.

They need to help Herbert out more, it's a disgrace.

The Raiders became the fourth team in NFL history to have eight players score a touchdown in a single game. It is the first time it’s happened since the 1950 Rams accomplished the feat.

Running backs Zamir White and Brandon Bolden, receivers Tre Tucker, Jakobi Meyers and Davante Adams, tight end Michael Mayer, cornerback Jack Jones and defensive tackle John Jenkins all had touchdowns. The Raiders scored 35 points off the Chargers’ five turnovers.

The Jack Jones pick 6 was just an incredible football play. Just a blast to watch.

This has been the strangest season in all the 55 years I have been a football fan.  More QB's injured on minimal or no contact plays.  The offenses in the AFC have been disappointing across the board.  Especially as on team scored 73 points and only have 8 wins.  A team scores 63 points less than a week after being shut out.  

The best team in the league (49ers) lost three games in a row in the middle of the season. Their vaunted defense couldn't stop their opponents. 

Kansas City, Buffalo, Baltimore, Cincinnati, NYJ, and Jacksonville....all thought to be Super Bowl contenders, have either looked awful (NYJ) or vulnerable in the AFC.

In the NFC, the Giants were thought to be a team on the rise in the East. GB and CHI were hopeful for improvement.  Detroit, leading all year in the North, have become vulnerable. Whoever wins the South will likely have a losing record. Seattle and LAR are hanging on to playoff hopes.

Then there are the Vikings.  Thought to be an offensive juggernaut before the season dug themselves into a deep hole at the beginning of the year, losing 5 one score games with their first string offense turning the ball over at an alarming rate.  The defense was thought to be improving, but a definite weakness. They have been a top 5 defense the last seven weeks.

This has been a strange season.

The strangest outcome would be the Vikings winning the Super Bowl so I'm here for it
