The Titans and Vikings made the announcements Wednesday.
What the NFL covets for the regular-season finale is a pivotal game, a win-or-else matchup.
The league got it with the Raiders hosting the Chargers. Barring a tie — oh, please, not one of those — either Las Vegas or Los Angeles will be heading to the playoffs.
COSTA MESA, Calif. (AP) — Joey Bosa has been one of the NFL's best in at least two areas during his six-year career — chasing down quarterbacks and talking trash about them. He's done plenty of both to Las Vegas' Derek Carr.
Joey Bosa and Derwin James can do plenty of things to mask a subpar season for the Los Angeles Chargers defense.
Without either in the lineup, the defense’s fatal flaws for most of the year were ripe for the picking by the Houston Texans in Sunday’s 41-29 loss.
Josh Johnson joined the Ravens 10 days ago, and the well-traveled quarterback started his first game in 1,092 days with first place in the AFC North on the line Sunday at Cincinnati.
The Chargers didn’t have outside linebacker Joey Bosa, running back Austin Ekeler, receiver Mike Williams and center Corey Linsley when they faced the Texans.

The first Pro Bowl for NFL interceptions leader Trevon Diggs of the Dallas Cowboys means the league now has three sets of brothers with invitations to the all-star game.

Several asymptomatic, vaccinated NFL players tested positive for COVID-19 on the first day of “targeted” testing, a person familiar with the results told The Associated Press on Monday.

COSTA MESA, Calif. (AP) — Joey Bosa has been considered one of the NFL’s best pass rushers since entering the league in 2016. The Los Angeles Chargers linebacker has added another element to his game, making him an even bigger headache for quarterbacks.
DENVER (AP) — The Kansas City Chiefs see similarities in this year’s team to the one that won the Super Bowl two years ago.
COSTA MESA, Calif. (AP) — Los Angeles Chargers defensive tackle Linval Joseph entered the league's COVID-19 protocol on Monday following a positive test.

INGLEWOOD, Calif. (AP) — Pittsburgh quarterback Ben Roethlisberger and Los Angeles Chargers linebacker Joey Bosa are active for Sunday night's game after being taken off the reserve/COVID-19 list.

BEREA, Ohio (AP) — For now, Baker Mayfield's going to play through the pain — and maybe some painful-looking passes.
Cleveland's quarterback has a partially torn labrum in his left, non-throwing shoulder that does not require surgery at this time, a person familiar with the injury told The Associated Press on Thursday.
HENDERSON, Nev. (AP) — Derek Carr said Los Angeles Chargers defensive end Joey Bosa might have been trying to get under his skin with comments he made about the Raiders quarterback after their Monday night meeting, but Carr noted he saw the game very differently.
The offensive line problems that have plagued the Las Vegas Raiders early this season finally led to a loss.
The young group couldn't create any room in the running game or protect Derek Carr well enough against Joey Bosa and the Los Angeles Chargers in a 28-14 loss on Monday night.
COSTA MESA, Calif. (AP) — Chargers defensive lineman Justin Jones will miss his second straight game after being downgraded to out for Sunday's game at the Kansas City Chiefs.

PITTSBURGH (AP) — Ben Roethlisberger believes T.J. Watt is perhaps the best player in the NFL.
The Pittsburgh Steelers have decided to pay the game-wrecking outside linebacker like it.
A person with knowledge of the agreement says the team and the two-time All-Pro have come to terms on a four-year extension worth $112 million that will make Watt the highest-paid defensive player in the league.
COSTA MESA, Calif. (AP) — Joey Bosa's first five training camps in the NFL were pretty simple — refine his pass rushing techniques and get ready to ball.
The Pro Bowl defensive standout for the Los Angeles Chargers has a lot more on his plate this year.
