The #Raiders and #Chargers are in the playoffs with a tie, thanks to the #Colts loss. Will this change LAC's approach? "We're going to compete as a team to the best of our ability," coach Brandon Staley texted me. So, game on.
Odds Across Sportsbooks
Who's going to ask Joey Bosa IF* Carr looked scared tonite or went into fetal position?
Justin Herbert has tied Dan Marino for the most Pass TD by a player in his first 2 seasons in NFL history. pic.twitter.com/7aiKm0csH5
They missed a false start on Matt Feiler.... No call. Austin Ekeler's 19th TD of the season.
Chargers TE Jared Cook just picked up his 48th catch of the season, earning him a $300K incentive.
I think DeVonta Smith and Quez Watkins can make for two really terrific pieces in a starting trio for years to come, but it becomes apparent each weekend that they need a veteran starting-caliber wideout to group with them. Allen Robinson, Mike Williams, Calvin Ridley make sense
Uchenna Nwosu has two TFLs and a sack. There are 9 mins left in the first half.
Really confused why Kenneth Murray is playing in dime packages over Kyzir White. White is having a career season and has been the #Chargers best LB all year long.
Dustin Hopkins misses potential tying FG from 51 yards out. Two big special teams additions — Hopkins and Andre Roberts — with key mistakes tonight.
LB Drue Tranquill is active and that means the #Chargers' entire starting defense is healthy and available versus #Raiders
Oday Aboushi made the trip to Las Vegas. He's walking around without a brace. #Chargers
#Chargers inactives vs. #Raiders Easton Stick Larry Rountree III Gabe Nabers Senio Kelemete Joe Gaziano
#Chargers game captains: Derwin James, Linval Joseph, Keenan Allen

And Storm Norton lining up at RT with starters, as expected. twitter.com/danielrpopper/…
Rashawn Slater is one of most impressive young OTs I've ever seen. He's so boring. Casually locks down backside of Herbert every game Balanced + Under Control + Powerful. No oversets/lunging. Plays within frame. Quick sets out of his stance & smooth start/stop mirroring rushers twitter.com/BaldyNFL/statu…
Chase Daniel comes out for the toss. #Chargers lose it. Raiders will receive.
Tevaughn Campbell is in for Asante Samuel Jr. at CB
Chris Harris is a veteran, too. Just weird. Nerves? twitter.com/danielrpopper/…
Chargers edge defender Kyler Fackrell will return to the lineup for Sunday night’s showdown with the Raiders.
Fackrell was designated to return off of the injured reserve last week and was activated to the official roster just in time for the most crucial game of the season on Saturday.
Fackrell has not played since Week 13 against the Bengals. He went on the IR after undergoing a knee procedure.
In 12 games, Fackrell has logged 15 tackles, eight pressures, four quarterback hits, and two tackles for loss

Hunter Renfrow joints Darren Waller and Tim Brown as the only #Raiders with 100 receptions in a season...
Raiders tight end Darren Waller is expected to play, per source. #Raiders #Chargers
Another Daniel Carlson FG, this one off the interception, puts the @Raiders up 29-14
So a couple of days ago @Raiders captain Alec Ingold hit me up about a letter he wrote to Las Vegas and Raiders fans. Coming straight from the heart, he talks about everything the team has gone through, and how much they need the fans tonight: reviewjournal.com/sports/raiders…
Going back to that play where Zay Jones broke free deep: I highly doubt the coverage system called for Kenneth Murray to defend the deep half of the field. Obviously don't know for sure, but looked like Nas Adderley bit down on a shorter route and left his deep half open.
Storm Norton is having a rough game. Can't block Maxx Crosby.
The @Raiders only had a 1.6% chance of converting on 3rd and 23, but Jalen Richard was able to defy the odds for the first down. #NextGenStats powered by @awscloud. pic.twitter.com/IBQYpVSIL1
Casey Hayward gets his first interception all year and it couldn't have come at a better time. The #Raiders are in GREAT shape.
Quinton Jefferson walks off the field, on his own, and is on the @Raiders sideline after suffering an injury on that last play.
can't wait to see how the Raiders are going to use Marcus Mariota tonight
Johnathan Hankins is also active. Carl Nassib is not.
Carr extends the play with his legs on third down, Bryan Edwards broke free late to get open and made the catch. Clutch first down.
Darius Philon, who has played so well, carted off.
Real "Yannick Ngakoue led the 2020 Vikings in sacks" energy
Brandon Facyson gets the start at CB for the #Raiders. Desmond Trufant finished off the game against the Colts.
Chargers went for it on 4th-and-short backed up deep in their own territory and Darius Philon stuffed them. Enormous play for the #Raiders. Denzel Perryman got banged up on that drive and went into the injury tent. Something to monitor.
Not particularly. Coming off COVID-19 and Clelin Ferrell and Malcolm Koonce have flashed as rotational edge players at times. twitter.com/kostakalamaris…
