It’s an AFC West divisional rivalry as the Oakland Raiders face the Los Angeles Chargers. Here’s a rundown of the matchup for Week 5.
The Oakland Raiders are coming off their first win of the season and have a change to get another significant victory this Sunday as they face the Los Angeles Chargers. Not only would a win steer this team in the right direction, but it would also give them a valuable win over a division rival that will help them in the AFC standings.
The Los Angeles Chargers garnered much attention heading into the season, with my experts and analysts picking them to win the AFC West. After losing to the last two undefeated teams in the Kansas City Chiefs and Los Angeles Rams, the Chargers balanced their two loses with victories over the Buffalo Bills and San Francisco 49ers to sit at 2-2 on the season.
After a surprisingly close win over the 49ers last week, the Chargers will look to get a much more resounding win over their AFC West division rival. Despite some missing players on the defensive end, their offense weapons are capable of securing a victory.
Here is a look at the Raiders Week 5 opponent, the Los Angeles Chargers.
