Our analysts and experts break down the most important angles of this game.
Here’s an excerpt, but you can read the full story here.
Last week, in the wake of the offensive coordinator Ken Whisenhunt’s dismissal, Philip Rivers had maybe his best passing game of the year against a good Packers defense, completing 75% of his passes for 10.5 yards per attempt.
I expect the good times for Rivers to continue on Thursday night.
Defensively, the Raiders have allowed the fifth-most air yards and yards after the catch to opposing teams with 452.5 per game.
Slot receiver Keenan Allen should be able to dominate Lamarcus Joyner in the middle of the field, and perimeter receiver Mike Williams — fresh off the first 100-yard game of his career — could have some deep receptions against Daryl Worley and Trayvon Mullen: Williams is No. 9 in the league with 101.9 air yards per game.
