NFL: Oakland Raiders at Los Angeles Chargers Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

Today, the Los Angeles Chargers (5-9) play host to the Oakland Raiders (6-8) in what could very well end up being the final home game of Hall of Fame quarterback Philip Rivers’ Chargers career. Unfortunately, this is occurring in a lost season in which the future of the team will most likely be brighter if they lose to their division rivals. A 5-11 record would guarantee a top-10 pick in the 2020 NFL Draft and at this point in time, that this the best possible result of what has been a painful NFL season.

In significantly less interesting news, this could also potentially be the final home game of intensely average veteran running back Melvin Gordon’s Chargers career.
