San Diego Chargers Defeat Oakland Raiders 24-16

Whew, that was a little closer than I would've liked.  The Chargers defense had a hard time stopping the run all day, and just like Week 1 we can all admit that a better QB wins that game for the Raiders.  The Chargers offense was ineffective and mistake-prone for most of the game, but especially in the second half.

This was not the easy victory it looked like it was going to be.  I believe this is three straight weeks where the Bolts have played better in the first half than the second half.  That, plus all of the problems with the defense, needs to be fixed before going to New York next Sunday.

Bolts and Dolts will be difficult and interesting tomorrow.  Your input in the comments section about who you believe should be in each category would be greatly appreciated.
