The Oakland Raiders claimed a thrilling 26-24 win over the Los Angeles Chargers in the NFL on Thursday.

A fourth-quarter touchdown from Josh Jacobs helped the Raiders (5-4) edge the Chargers (4-6) in a clash between two AFC West rivals.

The Chargers had responded in the second quarter after a slow start, but they were unable to produce a late score as they suffered yet another narrow defeat.

All six of the Chargers' losses this season have been by seven points or less as they were left in third in the AFC West, behind the Kansas City Chiefs (6-3) and Raiders.

Philip Rivers went 17 of 31 for 207 yards, two touchdowns and three interceptions in what was an ordinary performance at the Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum.

He was intercepted twice by Erik Harris, who took one of those 56 yards for the first touchdown of the game.

Rivers' pass to Austin Ekeler gave the Chargers a 24-20 lead in the fourth quarter, only for Jacobs to burst through from 18 yards with just over a minute remaining to give the Raiders their win.

Jacobs rushed for 71 yards on 16 carries, including the touchdown, while Melvin Gordon (108 yards) had earlier scored for the Chargers.

Raiders quarterback Derek Carr was solid, finishing with 218 yards and a TD on the back of completing 21 of 31 passes.

The Raiders will face the Cincinnati Bengals on November 17, while the Chargers meet the Chiefs the following day.

A.J. Green is looking at the "long-term picture" after he was ruled out of the Cincinnati Bengals' encounter with the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday.

The wide receiver is not ready to make his first appearance of the season when the Bengals host the Ravens, as he is still being troubled by an ankle injury sustained in the team's preseason training camp.

The 31-year-old is unsure when he will be available for selection and will not take any chances with his fitness.

"I'm a competitor. I want to play, but sometimes you go through these bumps in the road, that you've got to stay focused," Green said on Thursday.

"You've got to look at the long-term picture. I've got to make sure I can play for another five years without having to worry about this thing, not just thinking of the now."

Green added: "Maybe [he will] take a day off and then go from there. It's just a process. For me, I can’t go out there when I'm not 100 per cent.

"It makes no sense for me to put myself in that situation where I can have another time hurting [his ankle], just like I did my toe. It's all about make sure I'm taking care of myself first. Everything else comes after that."

The 0-8 Bengals – the last winless team left in the NFL - are in desperate need of a lift and will be starting rookie Ryan Finley at quarterback for the first time against the 6-2 Ravens after benching veteran Andy Dalton.

The Washington Redskins activated running back Derrius Guice off the injured reserve list on Thursday.

Guice has been sidelined since suffering a knee injury in the Redskins' opening game of the NFL season against the Philadelphia Eagles.

The 22-year-old was back on the practice field late last month and is now set to return after a two-month absence.

Guice may have to bide his time to dislodge Adrian Peterson in the Redskins side when they face New York Jets on November 17 after a bye this week.

The unfortunate Guice missed his entire rookie year in 2018 because of a torn ACL in his left knee suffered during pre-season.

Interim head coach Bill Callahan stated last week he was in no rush to decide what role his running backs will play against the Jets.

"When the game plan is put in and who we're playing, how we're going to attack that particular defense and how we're going to divide the repetitions and rotations and things of that nature," Callahan said.

"Way too early to decide on reps and counts they'll have for that particular game."

The San Francisco 49ers are the last unbeaten team remaining in the NFL, though that record will come under threat in Week 10 when they face the Seattle Seahawks and MVP candidate Russell Wilson.

At the other end of the spectrum, the Cincinnati Bengals - now the only franchise without a win in 2019 - meet the Baltimore Ravens, who will be buoyed by their win over the previously undefeated New England Patriots.

Los Angeles Rams head coach Sean McVay will look to continue his impressive record against AFC teams in Pittsburgh, while the Miami Dolphins, fresh off their first win over the New York Jets, will look to finally get a victory on the road.

Here, using Stats Perform data, we take a look at the Week 10 match-ups.

THURSDAY (all times Eastern)

Chargers (4-5) at Raiders (4-4), 8:20pm

- The Chargers have won three straight Thursday night games and are 7-3 since the league started putting games on that day in 2006.

- Los Angeles quarterback Philip Rivers has thrown at least one touchdown in 23 straight games against Oakland. Only Brett Favre (26 against the Chicago Bears) and Dan Marino (24 against the Jets) have longer streaks against a single opponent.

- Josh Jacobs has rushed for 740 yards this season, eclipsing Bo Jackson to record the most by a Raider through their first eight games.

SUNDAY

Lions (3-4-1) @ Bears (3-5), 1pm

- Despite their record, the Lions are one of three teams (along with the Kansas City Chiefs and 49ers) to have led in every game this season.

- Detroit quarterback Matthew Stafford is expected to play his 150th NFL game. He already has the most completions (3,559) and passing yards (41,025) through 150 games in NFL history.

- Stafford's counterpart Mitchell Trubisky has thrown for just 8.95 yards per completion this season. He is on course to have the fewest yards per completion of any Bears quarterback ever.

Falcons (1-7) @ Saints (7-1), 1pm

- Both the Falcons and Saints are coming off a bye. Since 2009, they are both 8-2 following a bye - the joint second-best record in the NFL in that time behind the Ravens (9-2).

- Atlanta have lost six straight games, though, and have not dropped seven in a row since 2003.

- Two weeks ago Julio Jones recorded his 14th regular-season game with at least 150 receiving yards, tied for the most of any active player along with free agent Antonio Brown.

Chiefs (6-3) @ Titans (4-5), 1pm

- Patrick Mahomes may return this week, but the Chiefs have gone 1-1 with Matt Moore filling in. The two quarterbacks have combined for 19 touchdown passes, one interception and a 109.8 passer rating this season.

- Tennessee have been shut out in the first half on four occasions this season. They are 0-5 when trailing at the break and 4-0 when not behind.

- Titans quarterback Ryan Tannehill has been sacked on 10 per cent of his dropbacks this season - the third highest among QBs with 100 or more attempts. Marcus Mariota, now Tannehill's backup, has the highest sack rate with 13.6 per cent.

Ravens (6-2) @ Bengals (0-8), 1pm

- Baltimore have scored 40 points on opening drives this season and have yet to concede any on their opponents' first offensive series.

- Lamar Jackson has rushed for at least 60 yards in five successive games - the second time the second-year quarterback has achieved that feat in his career. Michael Vick is the only QB in the Super Bowl era to rush for 60-plus yards in more than five straight games (six).

- The only Bengal to score a rushing touchdown this year is quarterback Andy Dalton, who has found the endzone three times on the ground.

Bills (6-2) @ Browns (2-6), 1pm

- The last time the Browns beat the Bills, Rob Chudzinski was their head coach. Buffalo have won four of their previous five meetings.

- Buffalo are 3-0 on the road for the first time since 1993, the last time they went to the Super Bowl. The previous time they went 4-0 was in 1965.

- Baker Mayfield has only thrown seven passing touchdowns this season and the Browns have the second fewest scores through the air in 2019.

Giants (2-7) @ Jets (1-7), 1pm

- The Giants have given up the most points since their five-game losing streak began in Week 5 (158) and have 12 turnovers in that time - only the Jets (14) have coughed the ball up more frequently.

- Jets running back Le'Veon Bell is one of only three players with at least half of his team's touches this season (51.7 per cent). The other two are Christian McCaffrey (55.2 per cent) and Nick Chubb (51.6 per cent).

- Saquon Barkley has not had a rushing touchdown in consecutive games. He has never gone three games without a rushing score in his NFL career.

Cardinals (3-5-1) @ Buccaneers (2-6), 1pm

- Tampa Bay have lost five successive games at home. Only the Washington Redskins (eight) have a longer active winless streak on their own patch.

- Arizona are the first team to go five games without a turnover since the 2017 Chiefs. The Cardinals' four turnovers are the fewest in the NFL this season.

- Eight of the previous nine meetings between these two have been one-possession games.

Dolphins (1-7) @ Colts (5-3), 4:05pm

- Miami have lost 10 straight games on the road and will equal the franchise record, set between 2006 and 2008, if they fail to get a victory on Sunday.

- Colts veteran Adam Vinatieri is the first kicker to miss at least five field goals and five extra points over his team's first eight games since 1988.

- Dolphins quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick needs two more passing touchdowns to reach 200 for his career.

Panthers (5-3) @ Packers (7-2), 4:25pm

- Kyle Allen, who will get the start again after Cam Newton was placed on injured reserve, leads the NFL with a 116.7 passer rating in the red zone.

- The future appears bright for the Panthers, who have had a combined 2,393 scrimmage yards from players aged 23 or younger - by far the biggest total in the league.

- Green Bay have gone three straight weeks without a turnover and have had six such games in total in 2019 - the joint-most along with the Arizona Cardinals.

Rams (5-3) @ Steelers (4-4), 4:25pm

- Since McVay took over as head coach in 2017, the Rams are 10-0 against AFC teams in the regular season and have a 16-4 overall record on the road - the best in the NFL over that span.

- Pittsburgh have forced three or more turnovers in four successive games. The Steelers are second in takeaways in the NFL this season, behind only the Patriots.

- On the other side of the ball, Pittsburgh have allowed the fewest sacks (eight) in 2019.

Vikings (6-3) @ Cowboys (5-3), 8:20pm

- The Vikings are looking to sweep the NFC East having won all three of their games so far by a margin of at least 10 points.

- Dallas are 4-0 against fellow NFC East foes and have scored 35 points on average, yet they are 1-3 against teams outside their division.

- Minnesota running back Dalvin Cook leads the league in games with at least 100 yards from scrimmage (seven).

MONDAY

Seahawks (7-2) @ 49ers (8-0), 8:15pm

- Seven of Seattle's nine games this season have been decided by one score, including six of their seven wins.

- Wilson has thrown 22 touchdowns to just one interception this season and he has had five games with a passer rating of 130.0 or higher - one shy of the all-time single-season record, held by Aaron Rodgers (2011) and Tony Romo (2014).

- Jimmy Garoppolo posted his higher passing rating of the season last time out (136.9) and did not throw an interception for only the second time in 2019.

Andy Reid remains unsure when Patrick Mahomes will return for the Kansas City Chiefs, but the star quarterback is increasing his workload in practice.

Mahomes suffered a knee injury during the Chiefs' 30-6 win over the Denver Broncos on October 17.

The 2018 NFL MVP was expected to miss three weeks so could make a return against the Tennessee Titans on Sunday.

Chiefs head coach Reid is still unsure if the 24-year-old will be available, saying Mahomes still had work to do to prove his fitness.

"I think it's going to be day to day," he told a news conference on Wednesday.

"We've got to see how he handles [it], he didn't take a ton of reps last week so we'll try increase them here a little bit and see how it works out."

Despite Mahomes' injury, the Chiefs are 6-3 this season and sit top of the AFC West.

Le'Veon Bell has suffered no structural damage to his injured leg, handing the New York Jets a much-needed boost.

Head coach Adam Gase revealed the star running back should be fit enough to face crosstown rivals the New York Giants on Sunday.

Bell missed practice on Wednesday as planned due to the problem, but Gase explained the MRI he underwent on his knee and ankle came back with good results.

The three-time All-Pro selection required medical attention in the aftermath of the Jets' painful 26-18 defeat to the previously winless Miami Dolphins last week, where he rushed for 66 yards from 17 attempts and added eight catches for 55 yards.

"It was nothing structural or anything like that on the MRI," Gase said. "He is pretty sore, he kind of took a weird hit late in the game and it didn't really hit him until almost a day later. He didn't say anything after the game, it was not until Monday morning when he was real sore.

"He was trying to practise [Wednesday], we were discouraging that and we thought it would not be the right thing to do. He finally [agreed] he should probably stay inside. I think he's going to be all right, he is just really sore right now."

Major free agency acquisition Bell is yet to have the desired impact for a Jets team who have sunk to 1-7 for the season.

Having signed a four-year, $52.5 million deal after sitting out 2018 amid a contract dispute with the Pittsburgh Steelers, Bell has totalled 415 rushing yards in eight starts with one touchdown at a career-low average of 3.3. He has added 242 receiving yards and a further score.

The Jets' upcoming opponents are also enduring a 2019 campaign that is falling well short of expectations, with the Giants holding a 2-7 record.

Los Angeles Chargers owner Dean Spanos described reports that the NFL team could relocate to London as "total f****** bulls***".

Spanos responded to a report published by The Athletic on Monday, which claimed the Chargers and the NFL could look to move the franchise to England.

The Chargers relocated from San Diego to Los Angeles in 2017 and Spanos insisted his team are not going anywhere.

"It's total f****** bulls***," Spanos told reporters on Tuesday. "We're not going to London. We're not going anywhere.

"We're playing in Los Angeles. This is our home, and this is where we are planning to be for a long f****** time. Period."

Chargers head coach Anthony Lynn was also asked about the report ahead of Thursday's clash with the Oakland Raiders and he said: "I don't think there's anything to it. Well, I know there's not anything to it.

"We're not going to let it be a distraction for us. We've got a job to do Thursday night, and that's what we're getting prepared for."

Meanwhile, the NFL also dismissed the report in a statement on Tuesday.

"No consideration has been given to the Chargers playing anywhere other than Los Angeles at the new stadium in Hollywood Park next season and beyond," the league said.

"There have been no discussions of any kind between the NFL and the Chargers regarding moving to London. Both our office and the Chargers are entirely focused on the success of the team in Los Angeles."

 

Nick Foles will return as the starting quarterback for the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 11.

Head coach Doug Marrone announced on Tuesday that Foles will replace Gardner Minshew when the Jaguars return from their bye to face the Indianapolis Colts next week.

Foles, who led the Philadelphia Eagles to glory in Super Bowl LII, was placed on injured reserve after breaking his clavicle in his Jaguars debut in September.

Rookie sixth-round pick Minshew has performed admirably in his stead and kept the Jaguars' season alive, winning four of his eight starts.

Minshew has thrown for 2,285 yards with 13 touchdowns and just four interceptions.

However, two of those picks came in a dreadful display in Jacksonville's 26-3 loss to the Houston Texans in London on Sunday, leading Marrone to turn back to Foles.

 

Cam Newton's season is likely over after the Carolina Panthers placed the former MVP on the injured reserve list.

The Panthers announced on Tuesday that the foot injury which has restricted Newton to appearing in just two games in 2019 would now effectively end his season.

Newton, voted MVP in 2015 after a season in which he took the Panthers to the Super Bowl, started all but three games in his first seven years in the league.

However, a shoulder injury meant he missed the last two weeks of the 2018 season, and despite starting Carolina's first two games this year, he was clearly hampered by a foot injury sustained in preseason.

Though he could return for the playoffs if the Panthers made the NFL's postseason, Newton's campaign is almost certainly over.

"For the past seven weeks, Cam has diligently followed a program of rest and rehab and still is experiencing pain in his foot," Panthers general manger Marty Hurney said on his team's website.

"He saw two foot specialists last week who agreed that he should continue that path prescribed by the team’s medical staff, and that it likely will take significant time for the injury to fully heal.

"We have said all along that it is impossible to put a timetable on this injury. Nobody is more frustrated with that fact than Cam.

"He's one of the fiercest competitors I've been around during my 20-plus years in the league. At this time, we have decided that the best decision to reach the goal of bringing the foot back to 100 per cent is to place Cam on injured reserve."

The Panthers have gone 5-1 in Newton's absence, with Kyle Allen impressing at quarterback to lead the team to a 5-3 record.

Newton's long-term future in Carolina appears unclear as he will be entering the final year of his deal in 2020.

The San Francisco 49ers are the last undefeated team in the NFL, having rattled off eight straight wins to start the 2019 season.

That is an enviable position to be in but not one that has typically foreshadowed Super Bowl glory.

Since 2000, the last undefeated team left standing has won the Super Bowl only once, when the Indianapolis Colts went on to defeat the Chicago Bears at the end of the 2006 season.

In that time, the final remaining undefeated team has lost in the Super Bowl on seven occasions, including the previous campaign, when the Los Angeles Rams were beaten by the New England Patriots in February.

Here we look how the last unbeaten team in the league fared since 2015, plus assess the chances of the 49ers turning their incredible start into a sixth Lombardi Trophy.

2015 Carolina Panthers - Lost Super Bowl to Denver Broncos

Behind an MVP campaign from quarterback Cam Newton, the Panthers ran roughshod over their opponents for 14 successive games before finally losing to the Atlanta Falcons in Week 16. They finished the year 15-1 and appeared set for a maiden Super Bowl triumph after defeating the Seattle Seahawks and crushing the Arizona Cardinals in the playoffs, only to run into a brick wall of a Denver Broncos defense as Peyton Manning finished his career with his second Lombardi Trophy.

2016 Minnesota Vikings - Missed playoffs

The Vikings won their first five games thanks to an imposing defense and the efficient passing of Sam Bradford, but they collapsed after their Week 6 bye, winning only three of their final 11 games, and had to watch the postseason from home after an 8-8 finish saw them narrowly miss out on the playoffs.

2017 Kansas City Chiefs - Lost in Wild Card Round

It was a case of history repeating itself for the Chiefs, who won their opening nine games in 2013 before losing a Wild Card thriller to the Indianapolis Colts. Kansas City and quarterback Alex Smith won their opening five four seasons later before the Pittsburgh Steelers ended that streak in Week 6, a defeat that began a run of six losses in seven games. The Chiefs recovered to make the postseason, only to lose at home in agonising fashion as Marcus Mariota inspired the Tennessee Titans to a shock 22-21 Wild Card win.

2018 Los Angeles Rams - Lost Super Bowl to New England Patriots

The Rams - led by a juggernaut offense - looked unstoppable as they began with an eight-game winning streak, and even though they lost 45-35 to the New Orleans Saints in Week 9, that shoot-out defeat provided further credence to the argument they could go blow for blow with any team. They lost just twice more before controversially getting revenge on the Saints to reach the Super Bowl, but that much-vaunted offense came unstuck on the biggest stage in a 13-3 defeat.

2019 San Francisco 49ers - TBC

San Francisco have all the ingredients of a Super Bowl frontrunner. The Niners boast a suffocating defense, an innovative and dominant running game and dependable passing game weapons in star tight end George Kittle and the recently acquired Emmanuel Sanders. With the offense helmed by a quarterback in Jimmy Garoppolo who appears to relish the pressure moments and head coach Kyle Shanahan - seen by many as the most creative mind in the game - they seem perfectly set up for a deep postseason run.

Their hopes of turning an outstanding start into a title will depend heavily on how the 49ers deal with a tough second-half schedule that encompasses two games with the Seattle Seahawks as well as matchups with the Green Bay Packers, New Orleans Saints and Baltimore Ravens. If they can negotiate that stretch and secure a first-round bye - potentially with homefield advantage in the playoffs - then it will be extremely tough for anyone to stop them reaching Super Bowl LIV.

The Dallas Cowboys beat the New York Giants 37-18 as they extended their winning streak against the NFL franchise.

Dallas were too good for New York at MetLife Stadium, where the visiting Cowboys made it six successive victories over the struggling Giants on Monday.

It was not pretty but it was effective for the Cowboys, who improved to 5-3 for the season as the Giants dropped to 2-7.

Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott led the way with three touchdowns after throwing 22 of 35 for 257 yards and an interception, while Ezekiel Elliot added 139 yards.

The Giants only trailed by one point entering the fourth quarter, but their sloppiness proved detrimental after rookie QB Daniel Jones had an interception and two fumbles lost.

Coming off a bye, the Cowboys made a slow start after Prescott was intercepted on the first offensive play of the night by Antoine Bethea as the teams traded field goals in the opening quarter.

The Giants moved 12-3 ahead with less than three minutes remaining in the second quarter after Jones threw a one-yard touchdown to Cody Latimer, with Aldrick Rosas adding a 25-yard field goal.

However, the Cowboys stole the momentum back from the Giants with 10 points in the remaining minutes for a 13-12 half-time lead in the Big Apple – Prescott connecting with Blake Jarwin for a 42-yard touchdown and Xavier Woods intercepting Jones for a field goal.

After the Cowboys and Giants exchanged field goals in the third period, Prescott's TD pass for Michael Gallup gave Dallas a 23-15 advantage and his 45-yard throw to Amari Cooper with eight minutes remaining effectively sealed the win after Rosas' field goal had trimmed the deficit.

The Cowboys ended the night with another touchdown when Jones – who finished 26 of 41 for 210 yards – was strip-sacked by Dorance Armstrong and Jourdan Lewis ran 63 yards into the end zone.

Indianapolis Colts head coach Frank Reich said it is far too early to determine whether quarterback Jacoby Brissett will face the Miami Dolphins following his medial collateral ligament injury.

Colts QB Brissett suffered an MCL sprain in Sunday's 26-24 NFL defeat against the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 9.

Brissett went down early in the second quarter after Quenton Nelson stepped on his left ankle before the Colts guard appeared to fall on his team-mate's left leg.

An MRI on Monday indicated no major damage and the Colts (5-3) will wait until Wednesday's practice to gain a better insight into whether Brissett will be able to play against the Dolphins on Sunday.

"We're just going to have to wait until Wednesday to see how it feels," Reich said. "I mean, it's one thing to come in today after the injury and feel a little [better].

"I think in his mind he felt a little bit better than he expected to feel today, but that's still a far cry from being able to play the game.

"He's optimistic, but you have to wait until Wednesday, 48 hours to see how it responds to see if you can even start thinking about practicing and wrapping your mind around playing Sunday."

Reich added: "We'll be optimistic, but we're going to see how it has to go during the week."

The Miami Dolphins will be without running back Mark Walton for four games after he was suspended for violating the NFL's substance abuse policy.

It was confirmed on Monday that Walton had been suspended due to multiple incidents prior to signing for Miami in the offseason.

Walton, who was selected in the fourth round of the 2018 NFL Draft by the Cincinnati Bengals but was waived after his third arrest of 2019, has started the past four games and rushed for 201 yards on 53 carries this season.

"We have been in communication with the NFL regarding Mark's suspension," Dolphins coach Brian Flores said.

"The conduct of our players is very important and Mark has done everything we have asked of him both on and off the field since signing with the Dolphins. We look forward to having him back at the conclusion of his suspension."

Walton will be eligible to return in Week 14 against the New York Jets.

Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver DeSean Jackson will undergo surgery on a core muscle injury that has seen him miss most of the season.

Jackson initially sustained the injury in Week 2, though – after consultations with experts – the Eagles and the 32-year-old opted against surgery.

The three-time Pro Bowler returned to action against the Chicago Bears on Sunday, only to aggravate the issue.

Eagles coach Doug Pederson stated after the 22-14 win over the Bears that the move to take the receiver off was a precautionary one.

However, Philadelphia have now confirmed Jackson will go under the knife and he is reportedly facing six weeks on the sidelines.

"DeSean Jackson will undergo surgery this week on a core muscle injury," the Eagles said in a statement.

"He originally suffered the injury on September 15 against the Atlanta Falcons. Following the game in Atlanta, DeSean met with the Eagles and multiple independent specialists to determine the best course of action.

"DeSean worked hard for six weeks to progress to a point where all parties were comfortable with him returning to practice, and then to play in the game against the Chicago Bears.

"During the first quarter against the Bears, DeSean experienced discomfort and was held out for precautionary reasons.

"After further testing and discussion, it was determined that the best course of action for a full recovery is to proceed with surgery."
