First and 10: Thank God it’s Thursday

NFL Network’s schedule of Thursday night games kicks off at 8 p.m. ET with an important divisional showdown, as Carson Palmer’s Oakland Raiders battle Philip Rivers’ San Diego Chargers for first place in the AFC West. Read a preview of this important rivalry game, and if you’re in the mood for nostalgia, watch a flashback of 1978’s infamous “Holy Roller” incident.

Here’s what else is on tap for Thursday:

  • The Pittsburgh Steelers are once again angry with NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell, this time for a $40,000 fine levied against safety Ryan Clark for his hit on Baltimore Ravens tight end Ed Dickson Sunday night.
  • With the NFL regular season at its midway point, we asked our panel of experts to choose the best game of the year thus far, and there were plenty of worthy candidates.
  • Get an exclusive first look at the next episode of “A Football
    Life,” which chronicles the one-of-a-kind life of legendary Raiders owner Al
    Davis
    . The full NFL Films documentary airs Friday night on NFL Network.
  • There might not be a hotter RB in the NFL than Dallas rookie DeMarco Murray, who has 466 yards in his past three games. Michael Fabiano says you should start Murray in your fantasy league, and he has some other intriguing names to look for in Week 10.
