Open Thread: Early Games 10/9

There are plenty of excellent and interesting NFL matchups today. Unfortunately, most of them are not being played at 10am PT today. That's alright, we'll make do with what we have. Here's the games you'll be watching as you wipe the sleep from your eyes:

That Raiders game is of great importance to the Chargers and their fans. After the Broncos, the Chargers have a bye week followed by a five-game stretch where they face four 2010 playoff teams and those same Raiders.

After the Texans, Oakland plays the Browns, Chiefs, Broncos, Chargers and Vikings. Then, after playing the Bears in Oakland, they play the Dolphins. They could win 5 of 6 during that stretch, so it's important for San Diego to try and build a lead for the AFC West now.
