NFL Regular Season Week 5 – The Charger Girls

Whenever the Raiders come to town, its a big deal for the Chargers.  The Raiders are a long time division rival who are also in state division rivals, so that’s doubly special.  When I was a Chargers season ticket holder, the Raiders game was always special.  The games were electric and there was a circus like atmosphere with all those passionate Raiders fans dressed up their colorful outfits.  It was a game that always had a special meaning even if those games weren’t always the most competitive.

It’s a rebuilding year for the Raiders and quite the opposite for the Chargers, who are one of the favorites to win the AFC West this year.  So it should come as no surprise that the Chargers rather easily handled the boys in silver and black.  The Chargers stormed out to a 17 – 3 half time lead and coasted to victory on the strength of Philip Rivers, who passed for 339 yards and two TDs.  Final Score: Chargers – 26, Raiders – 10.

Let’s turn our attention to this week’s Charger Girl photos.  Click here to view the Chargers game day gallery.
