Derek: This is the final Thursday night game of the year, and possibly the final professional football game ever played in Oakland. The Chargers used their “maybe the last home game ever” status to cruise to a win last week, and I could see the Raiders doing the same. This will also be the final home game of Charles Woodson’s career, after all. I’ll take the home team.

Will: I have never had much affinity for either the Chargers or Raiders, but man, it sucks when your team moves. I imagine being stuck in limbo is even worse. The darkly bright side is that the Oakland crowd will be insane. I too think that will push them over the top. Raiders it is.
