Monday Night Football: Raiders at Chargers (7:15 CT) Lineups, Broadcast Info, Game Thread

The unbeaten Las Vegas Raiders make the trip to Inglewood, Ca., to take on Justin Herbert and the Chargers on Monday Night Football tonight, and I’m actually pretty excited about this one. The Raiders will have a tough act to follow after the thriller they were a part of on Monday Night Football just a few weeks ago to open the season.

Josh Jacobs is back for the Raiders and Mike Williams is quietly having a heck of a start to the season for the Chargers with 22 catches, 295 yards, and four touchdowns through the first three weeks. It should be a fun one tonight!
