Jared picks a classic AFC West rivalry on Thursday Night Football: Los Angeles Chargers vs Las Vegas Raiders
Now it's Justin Herbert vs. Derek Carr, but it goes back to John Hadl and Lance Alworth vs. Daryle Lamonica and Fred Biletnikoff.
Chargers (+3.5) RAIDERS (52)
Jared’s Pick: Chargers
Breakout Player: RB Austin Ekeler
L.A. played a great game against the Falcons last week after a tough beating from New England. With RB Austin Ekeler back, this is a completely different team. They no longer have to be heavily reliant on Justin Herbert throwing the ball. Also, with Vegas on a downwards trend, L.A. should cover. Vegas’ only advantage tonight, is their home turf.
