The Los Angeles Chargers will face their first division rival of the 2019 season in Week 5 when they host the Denver Broncos. Here are three bold predictions for the game.
The Chargers got back on the right track with a win against the weak Miami Dolphins in Week 4. It was the first win for the Chargers in Miami since the 1982 Epic in Miami. Sitting at 2-2, the Chargers will now face their first division rival this season.
The Broncos have had a very disappointing beginning to the season, and head into this matchup winless. It will be very tough for them to get their first win of the season on the road, against the Chargers, and without recently injured Bradley Chubb.
Before going into the bold predictions for the game, let’s check out last week’s predictions performance:
- The Chargers win by 30 points: Wrong.
- Andre Patton earns his spot: Right.
- Jerry Tillery gets two sacks: Wrong.
The Chargers blew the Dolphins out of the water, but the score was 30-10, a 20-point win by the Chargers. The Dolphins lightly threatened the Chargers during the first half, but their offense stagnated the rest of the game.
Patton didn’t have a huge game, catching two passes for 22 yards. Prior to entering this game against the Broncos, Patton is still a member of the active roster and is likely to see some playing time, even if injuries to Mike Williams, Travis Benjamin and Dontrelle Inman have something to do with it.
Tillery got his first half-sack of the season but was 1.5 sacks away from meeting the prediction. He showed the first glimpse of his potential but ultimately should have shown more against a weak Dolphins offensive line.
