Week 13: vs Los Angeles Chargers
Week 13 brings the Raiders back to divisional play, as they take on an AFC West opponent for the second time in three weeks. After losing on the road to Denver back in Week 11, the Raiders get back over .500 in divisional play here, beating the Los Angeles Chargers inside Allegiant Stadium.
This game is going to be a shootout, as both offenses should be clicking on all cylinders this late in the season. Herbert and Carr could combine for over 900 yards passing in this one, but in the end, it is a Daniel Carlson field goal that is the difference in a matchup between these two rivals.
With the sweep of the Chargers, the Raiders have established themselves as a team to beat in the AFC, but they will have to finish a daunting stretch to close the season on a high note. Of course, these two teams could split, as they usually do, but I like Las Vegas to take both games against Los Angeles this season.
Record: 9-3 overall, 3-2 in AFC West
