Can you believe that we've already reached Week 15 of the NFL season? For NY Giants fans, you're going to have to wait until Sunday to see Tommy DeVito, Saquon Barkley and others in action. However, come Thursday night, there's a fun game on the way.

This week for Thursday Night Football, we've got the Las Vegas Raiders hosting the Los Angeles Chargers for a matchup at Allegiant Stadium. While this may not be the sexiest quarterback matchup, there are division bragging rights on the line. Who will come out on top?

Raiders and Chargers will battle it out for Thursday Night Football

For the Chargers, they're coming off a disappointing loss to the Denver Broncos on Sunday, but the day was a nightmare for more than just suffering a defeat. Quarterback Justin Herbert suffered a nasty-looking finger injury and went back to the locker room.

It has since been confirmed that he suffered a broken index finger that will require surgery. Just like that, Herbert, one of the top quarterbacks in the AFC, is out for the rest of the campaign. With that injury, it will now be on Easton Stick to try and get the LA offense going.

On the other side of the field, the Raiders are 5-8 (so are the Chargers) and they've been rocking with Aidan O'Connell as their starting QB. O'Connell has struggled and Davante Adams is in the middle of a down year. Will the two be able to get into a rhythm in primetime? We're about to find out.
