The Los Angeles Chargers and the Cleveland Browns are facing off this morning and this is your open thread to talk all Chargers football.

It’s Sunday!!! The Los Angeles Chargers are out in Cleveland and we have an early one today/ We are facing off against the Cleveland Browns. This isn’t that typical Browns team that can’t find a win against anyone (except us). This isn’t that pathetic mess of a team. They are actually pretty good this year. I even looked to pick up their defense in fantasy football and someone picked them up before me!!!!

The crowd is going to be loud. The Browns defense is tough and Philip Rivers is going to need to be on point to start this game out. The offensive line will have one of their toughest matchups this year. The offense will have to silent them early and continue to put points on the board.

The Chargers have faced off against the Browns the last 3 seasons and all the games have been close. This one could come down to the wire as well. The Browns have played everyone tight this year.

What do you guys expect to see in this one? The Chargers cannot come out flat in this game or it could get out of hand. The offense needs to dictate the pace and show the Browns that they are one of the best at moving the ball down the field and putting up points. They will need to keep the crowd out of it.

I expect Melvin Gordon and Austin Ekeler to continue what they have been doing. They are going to get the ball in the passing game and move the chains. They have been doing it all season and I don’t see that changing much in this game. They are matchup nightmares.

The Chargers defense will continue to force turnovers. This defense has forced turnovers all year and that is not going to stop. Will it be a strip sack this time around?

Lately, they are showing that they can actually bend and not break. They finally are slowing the big play and the players are starting to settle into their roles better. The defense has shown that it can stuff the run this season as well. Looking forward to seeing what the defense can do in this game.

Let’s get it! Let’s start the day with your predictions going into the game. How are we going to do in the field goal department?
