Oakland and San Diego, two franchises that could be stalking L.A. for joint tenancy, won’t be seen in L.A. this weekend, however, because while the two AFC West rivals are facing each other, it’s in the same TV window as the Rams. And it will get a larger audience — 12 percent of the nation.

Thursday
