SD-OAK Grades: Mack and Carr shine in nail-biter - PFF Analysis Team
The disparity in performance from the Chargers’ inside linebackers continues to catch the eye with rookie Denzel Perryman (+0.6) once again outshining Manti Te’o (-4.6) with both playing in excess of 70 snaps. While Perryman earned his sixth straight positive grade and tied his season high with six defensive stops, Te’o missed a pair of tackles to take his season total to 14 and earned negative grades as a run defender and in coverage in the same game for the fourth time this season.

Chargers' opponents for 2016 finalized - Michael Gehlken (UT$)
If the Chargers and Raiders both relocate to L.A., one is expected to leave the AFC West. The possibility of the Chargers changing divisions is worth noting, as it'd likely reshape the team's otherwise established opponent listing.

Nick Canepa's All-Time Chargers Team - Nick Canepa (UT$)
The toughest one, because Dan Fouts, as Air Coryell’s pilot, is a Hall of Famer and one of the position’s true groundbreakers. The margin between them is so thin it has one side. I’ve covered both, so this isn’t one of those picks without a rear-view mirror. I chose Rivers because of his accuracy and the fact Fouts made many more mistakes, especially in big games, and Dan had more star firepower (and a terrific O line) at his disposal.

Five Lessons from the Raiders Game- Ricky Henne
It was the same old story with a familiar ending as the Chargers dropped their eighth game of the year by less than one score.  For the seventh time, the Bolts fell in the final seconds and it marked the fourth defeat coming on the last snap of the game.

Costly Miscues Doom Bolts Down the Stretch - Hayley Elwood
"I think he caught the ball," said Rivers.  "(But) under the rule, he probably was correctly overturned.  (The catch rule) is tough.  It’s probably the first time we’ve had it happen.  There’s a lot of other teams it’s happened to.  I’ve seen everybody say they’re going to figure it out and try to make it better.  I think they got it right, unfortunately…under the current rule.  I don’t think anyone would argue.  If you took a random poll, catch or not, it’s football."
