On Sunday the Chargers face their first divisional opponent of the season and that makes it the most important game so far. If the Chargers want to make the playoffs this year they HAVE, HAVE to beat the Raiders twice. With the Chiefs and the Broncos playing so well it is crucial that we don’t slip up against the worst team in our division. With that being said, here are some players to watch this Sunday:
Let’s start with the man up there. Royal started out the season on fire, scoring 5 times in the first two games. In last two games his numbers have been okay, not amazing, and he has failed to find the end zone. Let’s see if he can get his breakout year back on track and catch a couple TDs this Sunday.
