Chargers by 3 1⁄ 2

Raiders’ keys: It might be a difficult task for the Raiders to get much going through the air against the Chargers’ defense. RB Josh Jacobs, on the other hand, could be a major factor facing a Los Angeles team that has allowed 170 rushing yards per game. Defensivel­y, it comes down to making Herbert uncomforta­ble in the pocket and taking out WRs Keenan Allen and Mike Williams.

Chargers’ keys: They are boasting one of the NFL’s top offenses, largely due to QB Justin Herbert. In order for Herbert to get hot, the offensive line must contain a Raiders front that has consistent­ly lived in opposing backfields. Against one of the highest-scoring teams, Los Angeles has to convert in the red zone and can’t afford to trade field goals for TDs.
