    Derek Carr is loving his team’s chances against the Chargers in Los Angeles this week. 

    The reason? The Las Vegas Raiders quarterback believes Raiders fans will make the trip to Los Angeles for Monday Night Football.

    “Whether it was in Los Angeles at that soccer stadium or at Qualcomm in San Diego, it was another home game,” Carr told reporters. “You always looked at it as another home game and that was no disrespect, it’s just a fact.”
