NFL Thursday game: Chargers-Raiders preview

Tonight: Chargers at Raiders, 8:25, NFL

Line/OU: Raiders by 6; 46½

Much attention will focus on things that have little to do with the outcome. Both teams are trying to relocate to Los Angeles for next season, and this also will be the last home game for Raiders defensive back Charles Woodson, 39, a sure Hall of Famer who said Monday that he is retiring after the season. San Diego's offense has been painfully one-dimensional, averaging an NFL-low 84 rushing yards a game. Derek Carr, with 30 TD passes for Oakland this season, needs four to tie Daryle Lamonica's franchise record of 34 set in 1969.

Tom Jones' pick: Raiders 27, Chargers 17

Readers' pick: Raiders 70.4 percent
