The Los Angeles Chargers and the Las Vegas Raiders are gearing up for a Week 18 showdown that will have significant playoff implications for both teams, as a win by either team advances that team into the playoffs, while the other team’s season is over.

However, in a wild playoff scenario, both teams would make the playoffs if the Jacksonville Jaguars beat the Indianapolis Colts, and the Baltimore Ravens win or tie against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

When asked about it, head coach Brandon Staley wasn’t entertained with the idea and offered his insight into the Chargers-Raiders game.

“That’s a pretty loaded scenario,” Staley said on “The Rich Eisen Show” this week. According to him, the Chargers and Raiders both have ‘respect for the game,’ and neither team could accept doing something like that. I think we all respect the game and the NFL shield and the integrity of this game far too much to be complicit in something like that.”

Staley assured the audience that the team would play their best and would be proud of whatever result they got. In addition, he also hoped that all NFL lovers and fans could be proud of the result of the Sunday game as well.

The Chargers head coach has been in the news this season for how aggressive he is on fourth downs, so this answer shouldn’t surprise anyone.
