Chargers get Kirk Cousins in prime time

Week 15: Minnesota Vikings

The fourth loss of the season comes at the hands of the Minnesota Vikings. This has a feel to it similar to last year’s Ravens regular season game. Minnesota may struggle offensively, but does more than enough defensively to get it done. Anthony Barr, Harrison Smith, and Danielle Hunter have good games while Adam Thielen has a night to push the Vikings over the top in this one. Hayward cannot cover both Thieln and Stefon Diggs, and it will be tough for whoever the second corner is to match up with either.

If the Chargers are to win, it’s going to come down to physicality. Can they take down the both the offensive and defensive lines for Minnesota? If yes, the Chargers will probably win, but for some reason, the physicality of that Vikings’ defense is scary.

Record: 10-4

Week 16: Oakland Raiders

Chargers sweep the Raiders for the second year in a row here. Maybe Gruden can surprise with this team, but it seems unlikely at the moment. The Chargers have swept the Raiders the last two years and are two teams trending in opposite directions. Expect the dominance to continue.

Record: 11-4
