This game has huge playoff implications for these two teams. It basically comes down to win and get in, with one exception.
Right now, the AFC is down to four teams fighting for the last two spots in the division. The Raiders, Chargers and Colts are all 9-7. The Steelers are 8-7-1. If the Jaguars beat the Colts on Sunday, then both of these teams could get into the playoffs with a tie in this game.

The Chargers' quarterback Justin Herbert has been phenomenal this season. He is No. 3 in the NFL with 4,631 passing yards. As a team, they rank No. 6 in the NFL in points scored per game at 27.6 points and No. 4 in yards per game with 398.8 yards.
The Raiders' quarterback Derek Carr has been one of the bright spots on this team, along with wide receiver Hunter Renfrow. As one analyst put it, they most likely would not be in the position to get into the playoffs if Carr was not the quarterback.
He has thrown for 4,618 yards this season, which is good for No. 4 in the league behind Herbert.
