The last game of the 2021-22 season will showcase the AFC West matchup between the Chargers and Raiders on "Sunday Night Football."

This game has heavy playoff implications. Both teams come into the matchup with 9-7 records, tied for second in the AFC West standings behind the Chiefs. If the Colts lose to the Jaguars on Sunday afternoon, then the Chargers and Raiders would just need to tie in order to both make the playoffs. However, if they don't tie, then the winning team would make the playoffs. If the Colts win on Sunday afternoon, then both teams would most likely make the playoffs.

The Chargers beat the Raiders 28-14 in their earlier matchup this season. The Chargers are 1-1 against the Chiefs and the Broncos this season. The Raiders beat the Broncos in both of their season meetings, while the Chiefs beat the Raiders in both games.

Justin Herbert has thrown for 4,631 yards this season and 35 touchdowns. Derek Carr isn't too far behind — he's thrown for 4,618 yards and 21 touchdowns.

This matchup is expected to be close with the Chargers opening as just 2.5-point favorites, according to DraftKings Sportsbook.
