Meanwhile, police arrested as many as 100 revelers downtown here celebrating the Raiders lack of a loss. It was the worst rioting connected to a near bye-week loss following last year's near bye-week collapse.
The 0-4 Raiders play host Sunday to the 4-1 San Diego Chargers. Caesar's Palace opened Monday morning with a betting line of San Diego giving 49 points.
