Chargers bold prediction: The Chargers win by 30 points
The Chargers started the season with a trio of close games. All three games have been decided by a combined 16 points, including an overtime win. Miami is probably the least feared team in the league, but the Chargers tend to play down to their opponent’s level. If you factor that in with the Chargers’ record in Miami (0-8 since 1983) and all the injuries they have right now, one may start to worry.
The Bolts will put those worries away early and outscore their AFC rival by a very healthy amount of 30 points. It’s about time Chargers fans spend a Sunday without worrying about their cardiac health.
Chargers bold prediction: Patton earns his spot
Chargers wide receiver Patton has bounced between the practice squad and the active roster depending on the availability of other receivers. With Mike Williams out and Benjamin questionable, he has been called to the active roster once again to serve as depth. He will have to compete for snaps with Geremy Davis, but his outstanding play will have Philip Rivers look his way often.
Patton, who was a preseason standout, will excel once more, and when the week is over, his play will have earned him a spot on the roster. Once the Chargers make their next set of roster moves for next week’s game against the Denver Broncos, Patton will not go back to the practice squad.
