“Monday Night Football” has been largely a divisive affair during the 2021 NFL season. Week 4 will mark the third consecutive week that two cross-division rivals will face off in a key match. The only one that didn’t feature division opponents was the Week 1 Raiders vs Ravens contest.
The two teams participating in the Week 4 Monday Night Football game are from AFC West. They have a combined record of 5-1, and the winner will have a chance to be atop the division by the end of Monday night.
None of the teams in question are the Chiefs, but the Chargers, who just toppled Kansas City, will host the contest on Monday night. It will take place at SoFi Stadium in Inglewood, California. They are hoping to hand the Raiders their first loss of the 2021 NFL season.
Here’s everything you need to know about ESPN’s Monday Night Football game for Week 4, including kick-off time and more.
Who is playing “Monday Night Football” tonight?
- Match: Raiders at Chargers
- Site: SoFi Stadium in Inglewood, California.
The Chargers will face the Raiders in Monday Night Football in Week 4. The Chargers are 2-1 this season, coming off a 30-24 victory over the Chiefs in Kansas City. They’re close to being 3-0 this season and could have been tied for the top of the division with the Raiders and Broncos if it weren’t for several silly mistakes against the Cowboys.
Speaking of the Raiders, they’re one of the NFL’s biggest surprises this season. They started out by beating two playoff teams – the Ravens and Steelers – and the Dolphins, a team they lost to last season.
Both quarters of this game have played well this season. Justin Herbert has 956 passing yards and just threw four touchdowns against the Chiefs. Derek Carr leads the NFL in passing with 1,203 yards. He’s thrown for at least 382 yards in each of his three games this season. They will make a show for the viewers because every tusk has holes that can be tapped.
The winner of this match will either be tied for second place in AFC West or tied for first place. The Raiders could also find themselves alone in first place if they win and the Broncos lose to the Ravens. Needless to say, this is an important game, especially with the Chiefs fighting to get out of the gate.
