SAN DIEGO -- It could be a remarkable scene Sunday when the Oakland Raiders, closing in on their first playoff berth since their Super Bowl season of 2002, face a fading Chargers franchise that could be nearing the end of its 56-season run in San Diego.The Raiders (10-3), who have their own relocation saga brewing back home in Oakland, simply need to beat the Chargers (5-8) for the fourth straight time to clinch a playoff berth.Theyll be backed by thousands of their loyal fans, who could turn 70,000-seat Qualcomm Stadium into a sea of Silver and Black.The Raiders are looking to bounce back from a 21-13 loss in Kansas City that cost them the AFC West lead and, for the time being, a first-round playoff bye.Were looking forward to everything that we have in front of us, running back Latavius Murray said. Our goals, theyre still right in front of us. Thats how we re-focusing. We want to be playing postseason so we can give ourselves a chance to play for the big one. It starts Sunday.The Raiders can clinch a playoff spot on the same field where they were embarrassed in their previous postseason appearance, a 48-21 Super Bowl loss to Tampa Bay on Jan. 26, 2003.In their second year under coach Jack Del Rio, they finally have their first winning record since 2002.The Chargers, meanwhile, are in dismal decline, heading toward missing the playoffs for the sixth time in seven seasons, and maybe headed toward a new home in Los Angeles.There have been games in the past few years in which the Chargers have felt as if they were the road team in their own stadium.Anticipating a pro-Raiders crowd Sunday, the Chargers practiced Wednesday with piped-in crowd noise, which they usually do only in preparation for road games.Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers, coming off a five-turnover performance in a loss at Carolina, couldnt recall the team doing that before.Its just being aware of what its going to be like, said Rivers, who leads the NFL with 17 interceptions.Asked if he had a guess at the percentage of Raiders fans vs. Chargers fans will be, he said: Well find out. I have no expectations.Some things to look for in what could be the last time this rivalry dating to the birth of the AFL in 1960 is played in San Diego:STADIUM SAGAS: Raiders owner Mark Davis says hes committed to moving the team to Las Vegas, where a $1.9 billion stadium project has been approved, including $750 million in public money. Davis has from the end of the Raiders season until Feb. 15 to apply for relocation.Chargers chairman Dean Spanos, son of owner Alex Spanos, appears to be leaning toward moving to Los Angeles and eventually joining the Rams in a stadium in Inglewood scheduled to open in 2019. Spanos efforts to land a large public subsidy to replace Qualcomm Stadium have failed. He angered the fan base last year with a failed attempt to move to Carson and share a stadium with the archrival Raiders.Spanos has said he wont announce a decision until after the season. The Chargers run in San Diego could end with their season finale on New Years Day.RESTART THE CARR: Raiders quarterback Derek Carr will try to bounce back from perhaps the worst game of his career. Carr went 17 for 41 for 117 yards in the 21-13 loss to the Chiefs, posting a career-low 49.1 rating. Carr has his second-lowest completion percentage in a game and set a worst with 2.85 yards per attempt. Carr has won his past three starts against the Chargers with six TD passes, two INTs and a 98.8 rating.It was just execution, Carr said. It was literally inches. There were a whole bunch of plays I think about that we always hit that for whatever reason, sometimes it was good feet and the route was good, and we just missed by an inch. Sometimes that happens in practice and you never want it to happen in games.SACK STREAK: Raiders pass rusher Khalil Mack is on quite a roll when it comes to getting the quarterback. Mack has sacks in eight straight games, tying the franchise record set by Lance Johnstone in 1998. The previous NFL player with a sack in nine straight was Dwight Freeney, who did it in 2008-09. Mack leads the NFL with nine sacks overall during the streak. Mack has also managed to get the ball out when he records a sack with forced fumbles in three straight games and five of the past six.RUN TO DAYLIGHT: After being held to 86 yards on the ground during two wins against Houston and Carolina, the Raiders have found their running game in recent weeks. Oakland has rushed for 274 yards the past two games, led by Latavius Murray, who ran for 185 yards and three TDs in those games. Murray has run for 12 TDs already this season, tied for third most in franchise history, behind Marcus Allens 13 in 1984 and Pete Banaszaks 16 in 1975.CHARGERS WOES: Running back Melvin Gordon is expected to miss the game with a hip injury, and cornerback Brandon Flowers went on season-ending injured reserve with a concussion.---AP Sports Writer Josh Dubow in Oakland contributed.---Follow Bernie Wilson on Twitter at http://twitter.com/berniewilson---For more NFL coverage: http://www.pro32.ap.org and http://www.twitter.com/AP-NFL Nike Air Max 270 Baratas .

LOUIS -- St. CLEMSON, S.C. -- Clemsons Greg Huegel rose from fill-in, grocery store kicker to leading the nation in field goals during the Tigers run to the College Football Playoffs. Now, hes working to become more versatile and stay among the games best.Last year, I was a lot more nervous going into the season, Huegel said. The biggest change is going from a lot of nerves to living up to the expectations.And there are plenty for Huegel, who led the Football Bowl Subdivison with 27 field goals. His 138 points topped all kickers and set Clemsons single-season scoring mark.Huegel knows hes got a big role to live up to in the Tigers potent attack.If I was able to perform in those situations last year, Im just hoping I can do it to the same extent this year, said Huegel, a third-year sophomore.There were few expectations for Clemsons kicking game early on after senior starter Ammon Lakip was suspended for three contests following a misdemeanor drug arrest in June 2015.Huegel, a walk-on who coach Dabo Swinney dubbed his grocery store kicker after watching him kick a can at a Bi-Lo, impressed Clemsons coaches with his accuracy and toughness in camp -- he was once a hard-hitting safety on the JV team at Blythewood High in Columbia -- and earned the starting job.Huegel made four of five field goal tries and all 13 extra points in those three games and maintained the job when Lakips suspension ended.Huegel is our starter. Hes earned that, Swinney said in the week leading up to Clemsons season-shaping victory over Notre Dame.Huegel took confidence from Swinneys move and played a huge part in a 24-22 win over the Irish, converting all three extra points and hitting a 35-yard field goal in the fourth quarter thaat provided the winning margin.dddddddddddd.Huegel had a run of 16 straight made field goals that lasted until Clemsons 45-37 win over North Carolina in the Atlantic Coast Conference title game.Huegel continued his success in the playoffs with five of seven field goals in a 37-17 win over Oklahoma in the Orange Bowl and a 45-40 loss to Alabama in the national championship game.Huegels spent this summer working on his long game. He talked with former Clemson kicker (now with the Arizona Cardinals) Chandler Catanzaro, who got him hooked on yoga.I put my body in positions that Ive never been put in before, Huegel said. It was pretty uncomfortable.Huegel said hes gained mental and physical discipline from yoga, helping him strike the ball better and become more consistent on long kicks.While Huegel hit 27 of 32 field goals, four of those misses were from 44 yards or longer and never attempted a kick over 50 yards.These days, Huegel feels confident from beyond 50 yards and hopes to consistently put kickoffs into the end zone this season after having just 10 touchbacks last fall.Last summer, my focus was to be the most consistent kicker you can be, Huegel said. This year, my main focus was working on long field goals and Ive seen some additions to my yardage.Huegel was selected as the all-ACC kicker at the preseason football gathering last month and is on the watch list for the Lou Groza Award, given to the games top kicker. All things few saw coming a year ago.To be considered in other peoples eyes to be one of the best in the nation, thats really nice, Huegel said.
