Raiders vs. Chargers live score, updates, highlights from ‘Thursday Night Football’ game

Fans should be in for an entertaining quarterback duel when Derek Carr and the Raiders take on Justin Herbert and the Chargers on “Thursday Night Football” in Week 15.

The Raiders (7-6) need a win to stay in the hunt for an AFC wild-card spot. They’ve had impressive moments, with wins over the Saints (34-24 in Week 2) and Chiefs (40-32 in Week 6). They’ve also put in some subpar efforts, including losing two of their last three games. They were blown out by the Falcons 43-6 in Week 12 and suffered a tough 44-27 loss to the Colts just four days ago.

The Chargers (4-9) don’t have much left to play for besides pride and draft position. Herbert has had an excellent rookie season, but it hasn’t necessarily translated to wins. For example, he threw for 326 yards and two touchdowns in Los Angeles’ 31-26 loss to Las Vegas in Week 9.
