Week 10 of the NFL season starts tonight as the Los Angeles Chargers head to RingCentral Coliseum one last time to face their longtime rival, the Oakland Raiders.
The Chargers are 4-5 on the season and coming off a dominating 26-11 win over Green Bay that was far more lopsided than the final score indicates. Star running back Melvin Gordon looked like his old self with a stellar performance against the Packers, giving Philip Rivers space to distribute the ball.
The Raiders have surprised many by emerging as a Wild Card contender in the AFC. At 4-4 on the season, Oakland is in a prime position to make a big playoff push down the stretch. It certainly helps that only one of their final eight opponents currently has a winning record.
ESPN’s computer model has released its prediction for the game.
ESPN’s computer model believes that Los Angeles has a slight edge in this game. The computer model gives the Chargers a 50.3 percent chance to win tonight’s game.
With huge games still to play against the Kansas City Chiefs, the Chargers will need to take care of business tonight if they have any hopes of contending for the playoffs, let alone the AFC West.
The game will be played at 8:20 p.m. EST and will air on FOX, NFL Network, and Amazon Prime.
