The Los Angeles Chargers take on the Raiders on Thursday Night Football for the eighth time, kicking off at 5:20 p.m. PT from Allegiant Stadium.
Thursday marks the 122nd matchup in the series between the Chargers and Raiders. The Raiders are winners of the last three contests and hold a 62-54-2 record in the series. The Bolts are 27-32-1 all-time when they travel to play the Raiders. Seven of the last 10 matchups have been one-score games.
Los Angeles’ win last week improved its all-time record in the royal blue uniforms to 4-1. In 99 career games, Keenan Allen has hauled in 623 receptions, good for the most through the first 100 games of a career. Justin Herbert continued his Offensive Rookie of the Year-worthy campaign by registering his first game-winning drive and tossing a pair of touchdowns in the Week 14 win. He now has 25 passing scores on the season, the fourth-most by a rookie in history, while his 3,467 yards through the air rank No. 10 all-time among rookies.
Las Vegas quarterback Derek Carr has led the team to a 7-6 record this year and is on pace to set a career-high mark with a 102.1 passer rating this season. Josh Jacobs ranks third in the AFC with 831 rushing yards, while Darren Waller is 16 receptions shy of being the sixth tight end in NFL history to post 100 catches in a season
