4 reasons the Las Vegas Raiders will beat the Los Angeles Chargers in Week 4
Two of the top quarterbacks in football are going against each other in this contest, well at least from a statistical standpoint. Raiders quarterback Derek Carr is leading the league in passing yards with a staggering number a tick over 1,200 yards, and sitting fourth overall behind him is Chargers quarterback Justin Herbert at over 950 passing yards.
Both of these numbers indicate that these quarterback are in line for a huge game, and the top quarterback in this one will play a large role in a victory. It is hard to compare the resumes of these two quarterbacks, as they are completely opposite in terms of experience and situation. Carr is seven years older than the second-year quarterback in Herbert, but when looking at what Carr is doing this season, he has the edge over the young upstart.
Carr has been playing at a historic rate, and no matter what opposition has been thrown at him so far, he has thrived. After eight years in charge of the Raiders offense, it seems Carr is more comfortable than he ever has been.
Be it the comfortability with the complex system of Gruden, or having a slew of dependable receivers around him, there is no true definite answer here, but the only known fact is that Carr is playing lights out football so far, and this should continue come Monday night.
