Raiders host Chargers on Thursday Night Football
Stick takes over for Justin Herbert, who will have surgery to address a fractured index finger on his throwing hand, the team announced on Tuesday.
The Raiders have lost three straight, including a historic loss to the Minnesota Vikings at home in Week 14. Their 3-0 defeat marked the first time a team that scored three or fewer points won since 2007, when the Pittsburgh Steelers topped the Miami Dolphins in a torrential downpour.
Only seven games have ended with a 3-0 score in the Super Bowl era. O'Connell threw for 171 yards and an interception in the defeat.
Meanwhile, the Chargers have won only one of their past four games to drop to 5-8. Stick threw for 179 yards in relief of Herbert in their 24-7 loss in Week 14 against the Denver Broncos.
TSN has coverage Saturday of a tripleheader featuring playoff implications in all three games.
The day of action kicks off with a clash between the Vikings (7-6) and Cincinnati Bengals (7-6), who are each in the thick of the wild-card battles in their respective conferences. Jake Browning looks to lead the Bengals in place of the injured Joe Burrow, while the Vikings may call on Nick Mullens to replace Joshua Dobbs, who was benched due to poor performance in their Week 14 game against the Raiders.
The tripleheader continues with the Steelers (7-6) facing the Indianapolis Colts (7-6) in another battle of backup QBs seeking to guide their teams to the playoffs. Mitch Trubisky leads Pittsburgh against Gardner Minshew for Indianapolis, with kickoff scheduled for 4:30pm ET / 1:30pm PT on TSN1/3, TSN.ca and the TSN App.
The day is capped off with a game between the Denver Broncos (7-6) and Detroit Lions (9-4) in Detroit. Denver have won six of their last seven to turn around a 1-5 start that included a 70-20 blowout loss against the Miami Dolphins. Detroit has 10 turnovers in their last four games to contribute to a 2-2 record in that span.

These NFC West foes met back in Week 4 of this season, with the 49ers trouncing the Cardinals 35-16 at home to improve to 4-0. Running back Christian McCaffrey accounted for 177 yards from scrimmage for the 49ers with four touchdowns, while Brock Purdy completed 20-of-21 passes for 283 yards.
The Jaguars seemed to survive an injury scare with their prized QB in Lawrence, who suffered an ankle sprain in their Week 13 defeat against the Cincinnati Bengals. He was able to play through the injury just six days later against the Browns, but the Jaguars suffered their second-consecutive defeat after committing four turnovers.
Baltimore has won three straight, but it required a 76-yard walk-off punt return by Tylan Wallace in overtime to top the Los Angeles Rams last week. QB Lamar Jackson has 2,934 passing yards through 13 games and 644 rushing yards.
