The Los Angeles Chargers, one of the league’s hottest teams, draw one of the league’s worst teams in Week 10.
The Chargers face the Oakland Raiders, a team sitting at 1-7 and well on its way to having the No.1 overall pick in next year’s draft. Jon Gruden seems eager to get this season over, as it just has not gone well.
The Chargers already beat the Raiders once this season, downing them 26-10 back in Week 6. The Chargers were able to take their foot off the gas pedal in that game as the Raiders just posed no threat offensively.
The game wasn’t close.
Coming off a huge road win over the Seattle Seahawks last week, the Chargers can’t afford a letdown against what is arguably the league’s worst team.

Philip Rivers threw for 339 yards and two touchdowns in the first meeting and he is the only quarterback in the league to throw multiple touchdown passes in every game this season. Expect him to put up another good stat line in this one as he should be able to pick this Raiders defense apart.
Inactives for the Chargers include Trevor Williams, Forrest Lamp, Joey Bosa, Chris Landrum, Cole Toner, Trent Scott and Geremy Davis.
The Chargers have won the last three games in this series and will be heavily favored to continue the Raiders’ misery in 2018. Kickoff is scheduled for 1:05 pm PT and the game will be televised on FOX.
