The Las Vegas Raiders travel to Los Angeles in Week 4 to take on the divisional rival Chargers, and here are three things to watch in the matchup.
The Las Vegas Raiders, for the second time in four weeks, will now be slated to play in the highly-anticipated Monday football night game. The opponent will be a familiar foe, and the first divisional matchup for the Raiders, as they travel to SoFi to take on the 2-21 Los Angeles Chargers.
The Chargers have been a pretty solid team so far as their one loss was a nail-biter lost by only three points to the Dallas Cowboys. Coming off a huge victory over AFC West bullies, the Kansas City Chiefs, the Chargers are riding high and will look to come out swinging on the Silver and Black.
Unfortunately for them, this is not your typical Raiders team, as quarterback Derek Carr is playing at an MVP level, and the defense is wildly improved from a year ago. This has the potential to be an outstanding early-season battle, and you know tensions will be high for both of these divisional rivals.
Let’s take a look at three things to watch in this highly-awaited contest.
