XANDAMERE’S SHOWDOWN SLANT ::
Week 15 kicks off with the Chargers visiting the Raiders in what is expected to be a shootout. On a week full of high-total games, this one currently has the highest at 53.5, and it’s expected to be close with the Raiders favored by 3.5 points. These teams feature capable offenses and mediocre defenses, with the Chargers ranked 22nd in overall defensive DVOA and the Raiders 28th. We should have a fun one to start the week.
On the Chargers’ side, Austin Ekeler is the clear lead back, assuming the role immediately . . .
