The Oakland Raiders and the San Diego Chargers face off tonight on the NFL Network for the first Thursday Night Football game of the year. It gives Bengals fans an opportunity to watch Carson Palmer in a prime time NFL game. Since he joined the Oakland Raiders, Carson has played in two games against the Kansas City Chiefs (2nd half only) and the Denver Broncos.
The Raiders have lost both games by a combined score of 66 to 24. In those games Carson has thrown for three touchdowns and six interceptions for a QB rating of 53.9. Carson is not producing and the Raiders have dropped two straight leading Head Coach Hue Jackson to address claims that there are problems in the locker-room. So far, Mike Brown and the Bengals seem to have gotten the better end of the trade.
Another note of interest for Bengals fans is T.J. Houshmandzadeh who signed with the Raiders during the bye week. He managed one reception for 28 yards against the Broncos last week. Chinedum Ndukwe was just cut so we will not get to see him in action tonight.
Who should Bengals fans root for if anyone? The San Diego Chargers or the
Cincinnati West Oakland Raiders
