QB Justin Herbert Tosses 3 TDs as Chargers def. Raiders (28-14) in AFC West Battle

Only one undefeated team remains in the NFL after the Raiders (3-1) fell to the Chargers (3-1) last night (28-14) in a weather-delayed Monday Night Football showdown in the AFC West. Quarterback Justin Herbert took charge and gave Los Angeles a 21-0 lead before cruising through the second half. Running back Austin Ekeler was also a dominating factor in the win. The Chargers have lost just one game all season — a 3-point slight to the Cowboys — and they look could be the team to beat in the AFC West.
