Chargers: Facing the best of the NFC North

Week 8: Chicago Bears

Late October Chicago weather with the Bears’ defense just doesn’t sound great for the Chargers. Maybe they surprise here and have a big day on offense through the running game or maybe some intermediate pass catching from Hunter Henry, but if the contest turns into a defensive game, the Bears have to be favored, especially at home.

The player to watch here is Mitchell Trubisky. If he can game manage, the Chargers are in trouble with the defense coming Rivers’ way. But if the defense plays to the Bears’ level, they can potentially survive a grind it out game. Expect a loss though.

Record: 5-3

Week 9: Green Bay Packers

The Packers are kind of in a rebuild? Are they contenders? They’re most likely in between. It will take time Aaron Rodgers and Matt LaFleur to get on the same page, and they don’t quite have the offensive weapons yet, despite boosting the defense in the offseason. Davante Adams and Aaron Jones could be a problem, but there’s not much else for Rodgers to work with.

While the defense is better than last year, it doesn’t have the ability yet to deal with the Chargers’ air attack. Rivers had 500 yards (!) the last time he played the Packers, and it’s possible he could do it again with the so-so secondary. Chargers take it, 30-21.

Record: 6-3
