The Raiders and Chargers are both playing well and will meet in week four. The two teams will meet in Los Angeles for an AFC West showdown on Monday Night Football. However, Charger fans will be highly outnumbered by the passionate fans of the Raiders.

The Raiders have some of the most loyal fans in all of sports. In addition, their fans usually make the trip whenever the team plays the Chargers in Los Angeles. According to Vivid Seats, 74% of the fans in attendance will be Raider fans.

The Chargers are no stranger to this. For example, Los Angeles had a game against the Dallas Cowboys earlier in the year, and more than half of the fans were rooting for Dallas.

CeeDee Lamb said it didn’t feel like an away game.

�We felt it. We heard it. And we loved it. Cowboys Nation definitely came out. Felt like a home game.�

The Raiders played in Los Angeles from 1982 to 1994. As a result, the fans still try to make every game in Los Angeles feel like a home game. These fans will look to do the same on Monday night.

Both teams are off to hot starts and expect a high-scoring shootout. The Raiders’ offense is on pace to break multiple records this season. On the other hand, Justin Herbert and the Chargers are playing with a big chip on their shoulders.

The Chargers are coming off of a big win against the Chiefs in Kansas City. The Raiders are fresh off of an overtime thriller against the Miami Dolphins. Despite both teams playing well, it will look like a Raiders’ home game in Los Angeles on Monday night.

The Charger fans will look nonexistent in comparison to the fans of these Raiders. Nearly 75 percent of the fans in attendance will be rooting for the away team.
