For the second straight week, the Las Vegas Raiders were able to beat an opponent in overtime. They went on the road to beat Denver and Seattle in back-to-back games, and they will return home to take on the Los Angeles Chargers this weekend. The Raiders fell to the Chargers in their season opener, and they need to split the season series if they want to keep their playoff hopes alive in the very competitive AFC.

On Sunday, December 4, 2022, the Las Vegas Raiders will welcome the Los Angeles Chargers to Sin City. These teams will face off at 4:25 p.m. ET on CBS from Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Las Vegas Raiders Week 13 Matchup

The Los Angeles Chargers are sitting at 6-5 after Brandon Staley made the decision to go for two on the road against the Arizona Cardinals last week rather than settle for overtime. That led to the Chargers escaping with a 25-24 win and putting a halt to a two-game losing streak.

It’s been impressive to watch Justin Herbert this season. Herbert is completing 67.4% of his passes for 3,004 yards (6.5 YPA) with 19 touchdowns and seven interceptions. His play has been impressive given the Chargers’ inability to run the ball, as they rank 30th in rushing, and the team hasn’t had Keenan Allen and Mike Williams for the significant chunks of the season.

Austin Ekeler has had a huge season though as a receiver out of the backfield. He leads the Chargers with 554 rushing yards (4.3 YPC) and seven touchdowns, and he has a whopping 80 receptions for 497 yards and five touchdowns.

Las Vegas has a solid run defense, allowing 4.3 YPC and 117.6 YPG on the ground. However, this secondary is one of the worst in the NFL. Additionally, the Raiders are dealing with some big injuries as Nate Hobbs, Divine Deablo, Anthony Averett, and Micah Kiser are all on injured reserve. Maxx Crosby is having a nice season with 10.5 sacks, while the rest of the Raiders have just 5.5 sacks.

Josh Jacobs is the league’s leading rusher after his performance against Seattle last week. Jacobs has run for 1,159 yards and nine touchdowns this season, but he was banged up after his heavy workload. That has led to him being considered questionable on Sunday with a strained calf.

If Jacobs is unavailable to play, Zamir White will likely get the start, and the Raiders will depend more on Derek Carr. Their long-time QB has had a decent year, completing 63% of his passes for 2,730 yards (7.1 YPA) with 18 touchdowns and seven interceptions, but he hasn’t been as great as expected after the team brought in Davante Adams.

The Chargers have the worst run defense in the league, surrendering 5.4 YPC and 151.4 YPG on the ground. They have been banged up along the defensive line, and Joey Bosa is still out this week.

Las Vegas Raiders Week 12 Recap

Surprisingly, the most exciting game last week featured the Las Vegas Raiders taking on the Seattle Seahawks. These teams combined for 44 points in the first half, and 60 minutes couldn’t settle the affair. The Raiders looked like they would win on their first possession of overtime, but Daniel Carlson pushed a 56-yard field goal wide right. That gave Seattle the ball around midfield, yet they went three-and-out on their next possession. The Seahawks pinned the Raiders deep in their own territory, but Josh Jacobs ran 86 yards into the end zone to give the Silver and Black a 40-34 victory.

Jacobs was the star of the game for the Raiders. He ran the ball 33 times for 229 yards and two touchdowns as Las Vegas finished with 40 carries for 283 yards against Seattle’s front seven. He also was one of the top receivers with six receptions for 74 yards. Derek Carr completed 25 of 36 passes for 295 yards with three touchdowns and two interceptions in the victory, and Davante Adams had seven receptions for 74 yards.

Geno Smith had a solid outing for the Seahawks, completing 27 of 37 passes for 328 yards with two touchdowns and an interception. D.K. Metcalf was the top receiver with 11 receptions for 90 yards, while Tyler Lockett caught three passes for 68 yards and a TD. Seattle had little success running the ball though as Kenneth Walker III had 14 carries for 26 yards, but he did have two TDs on the ground.

Once upon a time, the Las Vegas Raiders were the winningest franchise in professional sports. From 1967 through 2002, the Raiders had the highest winning percentage of all teams in the major professional sports. During that time, the Raiders won three Super Bowl championships and threatened for several more.

Just as incredible are the humble beginnings of the franchise. The Raiders were born in 1960 as charter members of the American Football League. They have been in the same AFC West division with the Kansas City Chiefs, Los Angeles Chargers, and Denver Broncos from the start of operations.

In the Raiders' early years were heavy losses on the field and the balance sheet. The team nearly folded on multiple occasions. But in 1963, Al Davis was the dynamic leader that changed everything.

Davis took over as head coach and general manager in 1963 and improved the Raiders from 1-13 to 10-4 as a rookie. Davis changed the team colors to silver and black and made the team in his image.

However, the final years of the Davis era were sad and pathetic. The Raiders turned into consistently big losers and played before a dilapidated and half-empty Oakland Coliseum. When Al Davis died, the team passed to his son Mark. Knowing he needed a jolt of increased revenue to survive, Mark Davis moved the team to Las Vegas and sparking new Allegiant Stadium in 2020.

With a playoff berth last year, the Raiders are optimistic about their future in Sin City and with new head coach Josh McDaniels.
