Chargers bold prediction: Keenan Allen bounces back with 100 yards and a touchdown

Allen has been in a slump since Week 4. It hasn’t been all his fault, as the offense has turned away from him. Getting him going once again can be a huge improvement for the team.

This is the time of the season when Allen tends to get on a streak, and it couldn’t come at a better time. The Chargers can pull only one game behind the Chiefs with a win in Mexico City and a bye next week. If they are going to make a run at the division title or a Wild Card spot, they will need their best receiver to become a factor once again.

While his mere presence on the field is beneficial for the offense, as he opens things up for other players, there’s no doubt the offense and Rivers are way better when Allen is on a roll.

Allen hasn’t caught a touchdown or reached 70 yards since his monster game against the Houston Texans back in Week 3, but he will shine once again in Mexico City with at least 100 receiving yards and a touchdown, reminding the football world of what he can do.
