The Las Vegas Raiders kick off their divisional schedule against the Chargers, and here are some X-factors for the Silver and Black in this one.
The NFL truly saved the best for last in the Week 4 slate, with the undefeated Las Vegas Raiders (3-0) traveling to SoFi Stadium for an AFC West rivalry matchup with the Los Angeles Chargers (2-1). Monday night’s game features two of the best teams in the league right now as well as a head-to-head between two of the leading quarterbacks in the NFL.
Offensive firepower will be on display as the Raiders (first in passing yards per game and total yards per game) seek to remain undefeated, with the Chargers (10th in passing yards per game and fourth in total yards per game) looking to play spoiler.
Much of each team’s success has come by way of their quarterbacks: Justin Herbert is fifth in total passing yards (956), four spots behind the league leader in Derek Carr (1,203).
But getting a win on Monday night won’t solely rest on the shoulders of the two players under center. Rather, the role players must step up as well. These x-factors can swing the momentum of the game at a moment’s notice, and for Las Vegas to remain undefeated, these players must show out to secure the win.
