It’s a short week, so it’s that time of the week again.

Yes, prediction time.

The Las Vegas Raiders begin the NFL Week 15 slate as they host AFC West foe, the Los Angeles Chargers, on Thursday nigh at Allegiant Stadium. Kickoff is set for 5:15 p.m. PT.

This game will likely be close as both teams try to stay alive in the AFC playoff picture. These two teams always seem to play tight game as was the case when the Chargers beat the visiting Raiders 24-17 in Week 4.

I don’t think much separates these two teams and I can’t see the Chargers, without quarterback Justin Herbert, sweeping Las Vegas. So sticking with the home team in a close one between these two banged-up teams:

Raiders 16, Chargers 10.

Now it’s your turn.
