The Chargers need a win today to keep pace in the AFC West. The Bengals will be a stiff road test for them.
Here are some questions I will be looking to get answered today:
1. How will the Chargers play on the road? They were pretty impressive at home last week. Can they bring that same mojo to Cincinnati?
2. Keenan Allen exploded last week. I am guessing the Bengals will be pretty focused on shutting him down. If so, which receiver is going to explode this week?
3. How good is this Chargers offense? They looked great last week against what was supposed to be a tough Lions D. This week will show us it they are for real.
