The Raiders look to pick up a crucial win tonight against the Chargers

A crucial matchup for the Raiders this evening, as they’re desperately fighting for a playoff spot. At 7-6, they are one loss away from falling to .500 and putting themselves in a nearly impossible position to overcome.

As things stand right now, Las Vegas is in ninth place in the AFC. In most seasons, finishing above .500 would nearly guarantee you a spot in the playoffs ... not this year. The AFC is stacked this season, as eight teams have at least eight wins. Vegas is only one game back of the final playoff spot, but two games back of the No. 6 spot. Anything can happen with these standings to close out the season, but a loss would essentially eliminate the Raiders.

Both these teams met just over a month ago, with the Raiders escaping with a thrilling five-point victory. The Chargers nearly won, but a game-winning touchdown was overturned to give Vegas the victory.

Derek Carr threw for 165 yards with two touchdowns and Josh Jacobs and Devontae Booker both rushed for a touchdown.
