4 reasonable expectations for the Las Vegas Raiders in 2021 Week 4
Winning the game at “home”
Lastly, it is a reasonable expectation to think that the Las Vegas Raiders will be able to win this game. The Chargers are an excellent team that won a tough game on the road against Washington, lost a heartbreaker to Dallas at home on a last-minute kick, and then went into Kansas City and took down the Chiefs.
They have a solid defense against the pass and an explosive offense that is near the top of the league in yards but lag a bit in points.
The Raiders had two dramatic wins and one end-to-end victory against Pittsburgh but are fortunate to be 3-0 and are in a great position to continue their winning streak. This is not to say that the Chargers will roll over or that the Raiders will stomp all over them but this is a game against a division rival that Las Vegas has a great chance to win.
The last two matchups with the Chargers literally went down to the final snap of the game with the Raiders winning on the road and LA returning the favor a few weeks later. A split would not be the worst thing but having that edge over the rest of the division and stacking up the fourth win in four weeks would give the Raiders a tremendous boost to their playoff hopes.
