GIF: Sio Moore is choke slammed by Chargers’ D.J. Fluker

source:  There’s no love lost when the San Diego Chargers and Oakland Raiders do battle.

That was evident late Sunday night, when the Raiders defeated the Chargers 27-17 at the Oakland Coliseum. The game slightly resembled a wrestling match during the third quarter when Chargers offensive lineman D.J. Fluker received an unnecessary roughness penalty for choke slamming Raiders linebacker Sio Moore. Moore’s weight is listed as 240 pounds and he got tossed like a rag doll.

Our Raiders Insider Scott Bair had the most apt description of the game in his weekly rewind feature.  

The Raiders absorbed some body blows, but never crumpled to the mat. That’s a huge positive. It’s something they couldn’t overcome last week against Washington.

Moore wasn’t injured on the play, but he will likely be taking a ton of verbal abuse from his teammates upon looking at the film.
