Raiders 38, Chargers 28
A tale of two Carrs. Will Raiders fan see the Derek Carr that has a 4 game win streak vs the Chargers, or the Carr with a flat tire they saw in Washington and Denver? I expect Carr will come out on fire vs a bad Chargers defense and hang close to 40 on them in a wild west shootout.

Raiders 27, Chargers 21
Game will be close and Philip Rivers will throw one of his patented game-losing interceptions late in the fourth quarter to seal the victory.

Chargers 38, Raiders 21
I’m sorry to be the bearer of bad news Raider Nation but Derek Carr isn’t ready to play. He’ll struggle and EJ Manuel will enter the game at some point to try and help the Raiders struggling offense. the LA defense is awful but I expect the Chargers to run the ball with success against the Raiders and send them to their fourth-straight loss.

Raiders 31, Chargers 30
The sad-sack Chargers can still put points on the board and I expect this to be a typical AFC West barn-burner. I expect Derek Carr to struggle as I don’t have the belief he’s 100%. Philip Rivers will throw a late interception and the Raiders will halt their losing streak at three games in an important division win for Oakland.
