NFL Sundays are back. So now we all know where we will be every week throughout the fall and into the winter. There are some great matchups on the docket today, including a clash within what projects to be the league’s top division. Also, don’t miss the U.S. Open men’s singles final this afternoon.
Here’s what I’m watching today.
A quick note: Due to COVID-19, sports schedules are fluid and subject to change.
Las Vegas Raiders at Los Angeles Chargers
The absolutely loaded AFC West will be worth watching every single week. But this matchup is especially juicy. The Chargers are coming into the season with all of the hype and the play of star QB Justin Herbert makes much that deserved. But remember, the Raiders took the eventual AFC champion Bengals down to the wire in the wild-card round even after a season that included a coaching change. Las Vegas has added arguably the top pass-catcher in the NFL in Davante Adams, and Josh McDaniels will be looking to improve in his second head-coaching stint.
