After facing each other on Monday Night Football earlier in the season, these two AFC West rivals will face off on Sunday Night Football tonight. The result the first time around was a 14-point home win for the Chargers, but will the Raiders be able to defend their home field tonight?
The Chargers began the season hot, but bad coaching and inconsistent play has had them tripping over their own feet. Their season includes good wins over the Chiefs and Bengals, but bad losses against the Broncos, Texans and Vikings.
The Raiders have had a season full of distractions, but they have somehow been able to put themselves in a position to make the playoffs. They won their first three games of the season and their last three games, but the rest of the season is a stretch they would like to forget for a variety of reasons. Tonight, will interim head coach Rich Bisaccia get this team a win and make a case for taking over the position full time?
