“There is so little separating these teams, these quarterbacks. The Chargers' secondary could use a break after facing Dak Prescott and Patrick Mahomes in successive weeks, but 2021 Derek Carr presents a similar level of challenge. Four Raiders receivers have eclipsed 200 yards. Jon Gruden laughs at the league-wide trend to play-action, while Carr drops back and paints the sky like he's Daryle Lamonica. Al Davis would be proud. Among such even teams, I give the slight edge this early in the season to the one with greater offensive continuity and the one with two overtime wins already in its pocket.”...

“Carr's streak of passing for at least 325 yards in five straight games, dating to Week 16 of last season, will come to a halt. The Chargers boast the best defense Las Vegas has faced yet, and the Raiders want to be more balanced with the run game. If they become too one-dimensional with the passing game, that allows the likes of Chargers defensive end Joey Bosa to simply pin his ears back and attack”...

“Raiders QB Derek Carr is playing at a high level, helping the Raiders put up the fifth-most points in the NFL thus far and leading the league in passing (1,203 yards). But the Raiders' defense might be even more key in this one against Chargers quarterback Justin Herbert, who had a bounce-back game last weekend against the Chiefs. One matchup to watch will be Las Vegas edge rushers Maxx Crosby and Yannick Ngakoue against Chargers rookie left tackle Rashawn Slater.”...
