The Oakland Raiders will take on the Los Angeles Chargers on Sunday afternoon, and here are five realistic expectations for the AFC West battle.
The Oakland Raiders will look to continue to move in the right direction on Sunday, as they head to Los Angeles to take on the Chargers. The Silver and Black finally put one in the win column this past weekend, squeezing out an overtime victory over the Cleveland Browns, and will look to run their streak to two games in Week 5.
For the Raiders, this season had been about their inability to close out games, but they were able to do just that against the Browns. Against the Chargers, they will need to put four quarters of good football together, as Los Angeles has more talent than the Browns, and a veteran leader under center.
The game this weekend will mark the Raiders second in AFC West play, after losing to the Denver Broncos in Week 2. Hopefully, they can come out on the winning side of the decision this time, but it will take a total team effort to beat a Chargers team that was the preseason favorite to win the AFC West in 2018.
Here are five realistic expectations for the Raiders this Sunday against the Chargers.
