Anyone watch the Chargers @ Vegas???

Such an exciting game........Chargers ended up winning in an exciting overtime game. Forgot about Marcus Mariota (sp) he was fantastic off the bench......was drafted at Tennessee and sucked for five years..........go to back up at LA Raiders, fantastic. Herbert for Chargers, ANOTHER AWESOME young QB. Was just a very exciting game.

We remember his college days at Oregon.
He is a talented player, for sure.

3. The Titans were rooting for Marcus. Gruden made some bad calls when they were on the 5

Mariota is a good guy. I saw him at Publix in the frozen food aisle!

Course it would've been a total Charger move to have lost as well, so it was a battle of who's bad luck was worse.

I knew it'd be the Raiders. We always completely fall apart at the end of seasons, and NEVER play well in games where we HAVE to win to maybe make the playoffs. EVER.

On a happy note, I started off the fantasy semi-finals weekend with a rip-roaring start ... starting Herbert, Darren Waller, and Daniel Carlson.

I'm going to need every point I can get since I'm playing the #1 team in the league, who's rolling in at 12-1. I limped in at 7-6. Though he was #1 and I was #2 in total points scored for the season, so ...

I know y'all really care about my fantasy team lol ...

Raiders fan here ... until they screwed over City of the Oakland and Alameda/Contra Costa County taxpayers. Hope they rot in irrelevancy for a loooong time.
