Chargers 24, Raiders 21

Turner wins in likely S.D. finale

SAN DIEGO — Norv Turner expects to be fired this morning.

Turner watched his Chargers beat the rival Raiders on a wet, gloomy day that seemed to sum up the state of the franchise.

San Diego will miss the playoffs for the third straight season. The only thing left is a final team meeting today.

"Obviously, we're going to meet with the team and I'm sure they'll start looking for a new coach," said Turner, who has one year left on his contract, at $3 million.

Team president Dean Spanos said: "I haven't talked to anybody."

General manager A.J. Smith also is expected to be fired.

Micheal Spurlock, who broke the Bucs' long dry spell without a kickoff return for a touchdown in 2007, returned the opening kickoff 99 yards for a TD for San Diego.
