Are you ready for some...backup quarterbacks? The NFL is full of teams starting their second or third options at this point in the 2023 season, and the first game of Week 15 should feature two of them in an AFC West divisional game.

The Chargers and Raiders are both struggling, sitting two games back of a six-way logjam of 7-6 teams with four weeks to go. The playoffs are probably out of reach for both of these divisional rivals, especially with Justin Herbert now injured for the Chargers and the Raiders rolling with rookie day-three pick Aidan O’Connell under center. O’Connell will face off against Easton Stick, the Chargers’ backup, to see which team will have any chance at all of climbing back into the postseason race.
