Who’s playing Sunday night football tonight? Time, TV channel, NFL week 18 match schedule

The last match of the basic part of “Sunday Night Football” will be the most critical of all. As usual, NBC has prepared a win-and-in scenario for the final game of the NFL 2021 season, and two divisional rivals will compete for the final place on the wild card.

The Chargers and the Raiders are two teams struggling to stay alive and make it to the NFL playoffs in 2022. Until a few weeks ago, the Chargers seemed to have tried to attack one place, while the Raiders were probably outside and they looked inside.

However, the Raiders remained alive thanks to a series of three winning matches, while a shocking loss to the Texans put the Chargers firmly on the playoff bubble. Los Angeles is still preferred to win one of the last places, but the Raiders have lasted quite a long time this season, so they will certainly be emotionally prepared for this competition.

Will the Chargers win and get into the postseason, or will it be the Raiders’ turn to shine? Below is more about the 18th week match and in addition everything you need to know about how to watch “Sunday Night Football”.

Who’s playing Sunday night football tonight?

  • Matchup: Chargers Raiders
  • Location: Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas, Nev.

The Chargers (9-7) travel to Las Vegas to compete with the Raiders (9-7) in the game the winner takes all.

The Chargers and Raiders are both in the center of the playoffs, but with the schedule falling, it’s highly likely that only one of them will make it to the post-season tournament. The Colts would have to lose to the Jaguary for both of them to do it. That is unlikely.

Both Los Angeles and Las Vegas will be strengthened for this match, as both are likely to play for their lives in the playoffs. The Chargers have a great offensive led by Justin Herbert, Austin Ekeler, Keenan Allen and Mike Williams, so they will hope to repeat the 28-14 victories they had over the Raiders earlier this season.

Meanwhile, the Raiders will try to trust Josh Jacobs against a bad defense and expect Derek Carr to play a solid game as well. The Raiders’ defense allowed 15.7 points per game during their three-match winning streak, so if their defense appears at this point, the competition may end in a tie.

Neither Brandon Staley nor Rich Bisaccia trained before in the playoffs, as each of them is in charge of franchising for the first year. Bisaccia took over the Raiders in the middle of the season after Jon Gruden’s e-mail scandal resulted in the resignation of an experienced coach. If he could lead Las Vegas into a post-season situation in the midst of all the dramas they’ve dealt with this year, it would be impressive.
