Culpepper to start Sunday

Daunte Culpepper will start this week’s game for Oakland against the San Diego Chargers.

"I won’t prepare any differently," Culpepper said. "I prepare the same no matter what. It’s no different to me."

Culpepper wasn’t asked to do much in his first start, going 5-for-12 for 75 yards, but he threw for two touchdowns and ran for three more, showing that his surgically repaired knee is feeling much better after hindering him so much the past two seasons.
