Chargers Begin Journey Towards Another AFC West Title Tonight

Two of the team’s impact offensive players are hurt at the moment in running back Ryan Matthews and wide receiver Vincent Brown. Matthews has been ruled out of tonight’s game against the Raiders.

Raiders Hope McFadden Stays Healthy This Year

Darren McFadden has the potential to be one of the most explosive running backs in the entire NFL but has had trouble staying healthy during his brief career. He is healthy right now, which is all that matters, as his Raiders host the Chargers Monday night.

Palmer will need McFadden to stay healthy if the two hope to lead Oakland to the playoffs.
