    Coming into Week 9 the AFC West was in a log Jam.

    The Broncos and Chiefs were on bye - both 4-4.

    Coming off a 3 point OT loss to dablakpope and a 7 point loss to lboogie the Raiders 4-3 traveled to San Diego 4-3 for its second match up of the season. Raiders won the 1st match up in week 5 : 10-6.

    Coming into the game with 2 straight loses the Raiders decided to make a change at QB. Benching Mike Glennon and Strating Brock Oswieller.

    The move proved to be the right one to start the game. . Brock started the game 7/8 with timely passes to Coby Fleneer and a 12 yard TD to A. Brown. But in the 2nd qtr with a crushing below was helped off the field with a broken collarbone. He's scheduled to miss 6 weeks.

    Glennon with plenty playing time came back into the lineup to go a solid 8-12 and was able to manage the game.

    The Chargers still had a very stingy defense not allowing for the leagues 4th leading rusher to get any traction. 9 carries for 24 yards. Bryce Brown

    Chargers QB Matt Barkley had a tough day. With a Passer rating under 20 and 4 ints.

    The Raiders defense had its best outing all year... only giving up 16 points a game but in its last two with 24 to Jags and 28 to Chiefs... the Raiders wanted to buckle down. Only allowing 40 yard rushing and 150 total yards, the Raiders recorded it's first shut out of the season.

    The Raiders sweep the season series and end week 9 on top of a very competitive Division.

    Raiders 5-3
    Chargers, Chiefs, Broncos all 4-4.

    Big game in week 10... it's the first game of the year against the Broncos!!

    Stats:

    2nd year MLB Yount lead the team with 8 tackles.

    FA #1 corner Captain Munnerlyn had 2 Int and 3 pass deflections.

    FS ...McCourty 1 Int.

    Dime corner L. Miles 3rd Int of Season.

    Orakpo 2 sacks. 13 at the halfway point.

    With Brock out for 6 weeks, the Raiders will insert Mike Glennon back into the starting line up and look to add another QB to the roster from FA.

    Good Season series games coachmimz
