The AFC West is looking like a scary division, and tonight we get to see two teams on the rise face off on Monday Night Football.

The Las Vegas Raiders are undefeated at 3-0, the only team aside from the Cardinals to remain perfect through Sunday. Of course, that could very much change tonight against a formidable Chargers team. Los Angeles is fresh off a victory over the Kansas City Chiefs, and a win tonight would put them in a three-way tie with the Raiders and Broncos. The Raiders have won two of their three games in overtime, so they were dangerously close to 1-2. Many had the Chiefs as a runaway favorite to win the division, but these teams are showing some fight.

Justin Herbert continues to build upon his record-setting rookie season, while Derek Carr is playing at the MVP-level he had in 2016. Will we see a shootout between these two?

Here’s how to watch tonight’s game:

Time: 8:15 p.m. ET
