Chargers vs. Raiders Part 2: By The Numbers

Let’s take a look at this matchup on paper.

When these teams first met in week one, the Chargers came out on top 24-19. Las Vegas running back Josh Jacobs only ran for 57 yards that day, but he looks like a completely different back in recent weeks. If the defense is not careful, it could be another long day watching an opposing ball carrier run roughshod over the Chargers in a must-win divisional matchup.

Davante Adams has also continued to be a menace to NFL defenses this season. After posting 141 yards and a touchdown in week one, there’s no real reason not to believe he could do it again if the secondary doesn’t lace up correctly this week.
