What to Know

The Oakland Raiders have enjoyed the comforts of home their last two games, but now they must head out on the road. Oakland and the Los Angeles Chargers will face off in an AFC West battle at 4:05 p.m. ET on Sunday at Dignity Health Sports Park. Oakland staggers in eager to bring about an end to their four-game losing streak.

The Raiders were within striking distance but couldn’t close the gap last week as they fell 20-16 to the Jacksonville Jaguars. Oakland was up 16-3 at the end of the half but couldn’t hold on to the lead.

Meanwhile, Los Angeles found themselves the reluctant recipients of an unpleasant 39-10 punch to the gut against the Minnesota Vikings last week. QB Philip Rivers had a memorable game, but not in the way you want to be remembered: despite one touchdown, he threw three interceptions and fumbled the ball once.

Oakland is expected to lose this next one by 6.5. They have failed bettors in their past five games, so buyers beware.

With the two teams each stumbling in off of a defeat, both will be hungry for the win. A pair of defensive numbers to keep in mind before kickoff: The Raiders are stumbling into the matchup with the second most touchdowns allowed in the league, having given up 45 on the season. To make matters even worse for the Raiders, Los Angeles rank third in the league when it comes to passing yards allowed per game, with only 209.2 on average. So the cards are definitely stacked in the Chargers’ favor.
