The Chargers are coming off a huge loss
Just like the Raiders, the Chargers are coming off a huge loss as well, as they looked absolutely terrible this past weekend. Los Angeles fell to the Minnesota Vikings in a 39-10 game where, once again, Philip Rivers threw three interceptions.
Both of these teams could be down on themselves right now, but the Raiders have much more to play for and much more motivation going into this game. Both quarterbacks could be playing for their jobs right now, but Philip River’s job may already be gone at this point.
The Chargers have no playoff hopes, their veteran QB is seeing his final days, they have no fans to cheer them on, and they are coming off of a massive loss. If there is a team with less motivation right now than the Chargers, let me know.
