The Oakland Raiders have an opportunity to add to the win column as they travel to Southern California for a meeting with the Los Angeles Chargers. Here are three bold predictions for Sunday’s game.
A few weeks back the Oakland Raiders were the feel-good story of the NFL, having overcome a daunting schedule to exceed expectations and find themselves within the playoff hunt. And now come Week 16, the chatter that has circulated the Silver and Black has been nothing but rumors. With only two weeks left to play, some outsiders are already looking towards Las Vegas.
But the Raiders still have two games left to play and are focused on closing this season the right way, and amazingly they find themselves mathematically in playoff contention. While the latter seems unrealistic, a win against their division rival Los Angeles Chargers can help close the season on a strong note and silence the critics.
This is round two between these two teams and the Raiders rallied for a close victory back in week 10 at home. To sweep the series, Oakland must be sharp, disciplined, and focused for all four quarters on Sunday.
Here are three bold predictions for Week 16 against the Chargers.
