LA Chargers: Four toughest matchups in 2020
By Brandon Viera
LA Chargers’ fourth-toughest game: at Buffalo, Week 12
A game that may not seem too tough to some, I think this game has the potential to be a hard-fought game from wire to wire for the LA Chargers. No, quarterback Josh Allen is not an incredible passer who will score 55 points in a Bills blowout win. However, this Bills team possesses talent all over the field, and the stout defense they have may give the Chargers a very hard time.
Playing in Buffalo at New Era Field in late November is tough for almost any team. The Buffalo Bills possess some of the most die-hard, insane, and passionate fans in the league and I think it may be quite the rough game for either Tyrod Taylor (regardless of his time spent in Buffalo as it’s still a tough place to play) or Justin Herbert (who will most certainly have a lot of adjusting to do in that game).
One underlying piece that makes this game a bit more nerve-racking, the fact that the Chargers play what will likely be a very important divisional game against the Denver Broncos at Mile High just one week before. The combination of a very tough game in Denver and traveling across the country for an early 10:00 AM pst. kickoff will be no small task to overcome.
This game doesn’t necessarily compare to some of the games above it on the list, but it is one I would mark down as a very losable game for Los Angeles. With that said, I still have faith that they will find a way to come out with a win in Buffalo.
