The Las Vegas Raiders play a crucial early-season game on Monday night, and here are four reasons they will beat the Los Angeles Chargers.
The upcoming Monday Night football game for the Las Vegas Raiders dwarfs the expectation for the first Monday night game the Raiders played in Week 1. The reason for this you ask? Well, that would be the 3-0 record, as we really had no idea what to expect from the team going into that matchup against Baltimore.
To think we are in the year 2021, and the Raiders are now 3-0 for the first time since 2002, would have been a wild expectation coming into the season. It has been nearly 20 years since the Raiders have tasted this level of success, which is a very weird scenario considering the current head coach in Jon Gruden was one year removed from being traded off of the Raiders back in 2002.
So, here we are, as the Silver and Black are looking to push to 4-0 with a tough challenge this Monday vs the Los Angeles Chargers. It will be a daunting task as the Chargers have been a very well-balanced team so far in this young season, and are coming off a monster road victory against Kansas City in Week 3.
However the Raiders should take the victory in this one, and I will detail why.
