Las Vegas @ Los Angeles

Current Records: Las Vegas 3-0; Los Angeles 2-1

What to Know

The Las Vegas Raiders and the Los Angeles Chargers are even-steven against one another since October of 2016 (5-5), but not for long. The Raiders and Los Angeles will face off in an AFC West battle at 8:15 p.m. ET Monday at SoFi Stadium. The teams split their matchups last year, with Las Vegas winning the first 31-26 on the road and Los Angeles taking the second 30-27.

It may have taken overtime to finish the job, but Las Vegas ultimately got the result they were hoping for last week with a 31-28 win over the Miami Dolphins. Among those leading the charge for Las Vegas was RB Peyton Barber, who rushed for one TD and 111 yards on 23 carries. Barber’s performance made up for a slower contest against the Pittsburgh Steelers two weeks ago.

Special teams collected 11 points for the Raiders. K Daniel Carlson booted in three field goals, the longest a 50-yarder in the second quarter, which ultimately accounted for the difference in the matchup.

Meanwhile, even if it wasn’t a dominant performance, the Chargers beat the Kansas City Chiefs 30-24 last week. Los Angeles QB Justin Herbert was slinging it as he passed for four TDs and 281 yards on 38 attempts. Herbert ended up with a passer rating of 165.30.

Los Angeles’ defense was the real showstopper, as it collected two interceptions and two fumbles. The picks came courtesy of SAF Alohi Gilman and CB Asante Samuel Jr..

The Raiders are expected to lose this next one by 3. However, those who like betting on the underdog should be happy to hear that they are 2-0 against the spread when expected to lose.

The wins brought Las Vegas up to 3-0 and Los Angeles to 2-1. Two defensive stats to keep an eye on: Las Vegas enters the game with only two passing touchdowns allowed, which is the best in the NFL. Less enviably, the Chargers are stumbling into the contest with the most rushing yards allowed per game in the league, having given up 170 on average.
