4 reasons the Las Vegas Raiders will beat the Los Angeles Chargers in Week 4
I have been highlighting the fact that the backup right tackle has been forced into a starting role throughout the week now. Not to put too much emphasis on numbers, but that is exactly what I am going to do here in a small margin.
According to PFF, Storm Norton has a 44.7 grade, and in the short time he has been on the field, he has been the biggest weakness on this Chargers offensive line. Norton will be lining up against defensive end Maxx Crosby for the majority of this matchup, and this should be Crosby’s biggest showing yet.
That is saying a lot because Crosby has been one of the best pass rushers in all of football so far. Norton has struggled against lesser competition as is, so imagine when he has to line up against “Madd Maxx.” This should play a huge factor in the Raiders walking away with a victory in this one, as Herbert will be familiarized with Crosby in a way he never has come next week.
