Why to watch
First place in the wild and wacky AFC West is on the line. Norv Turner's offense is under scrutiny, along with Philip Rivers' accuracy, while Hue Jackson's desperate move for Carson Palmer will tell the tale on Oakland's season.
Palmer has thrown six picks in six quarters with the Raiders and some wonder about the long-term durability of his arm/elbow. Rivers is leading the NFL in turnovers and threw consecutive pick-sixes last Sunday. Suffice to say, if either QB can shake the funk, his team will likely prevail. Might the Chargers sneak in an option play or two after Denver rolled up 297 yards rushing on Oakland a few days ago?
