Week 14: LA Chargers defeat the Atlanta Falcons

I am already salivating at the thought of Justin Herbert going against this Atlanta Falcons defense. Firing Dan Quinn is not going to fix the defensive problems this season and Herbert should be able to have a field day against this defense.

The Falcons’ offense is really talented as well and the health of the Chargers’ defense will be really important in this game. If the defense is mostly healthy then the Falcons are walking into a loss in this one. Joey Bosa and co. will get to Matt Ryan often and keep the weapons from getting too involved.

Plus, at this point in the season, the Falcons very well could be 3-9 and looking towards the 2021 NFL Draft.

Week 15: LA Chargers defeat the Las Vegas Raiders

I think the Chargers split this season with the Raiders and the difference between the two games will be the health of the Chargers. If the Bolts get banged up again for this game then we might see more of the same.

This is a Thursday Night Football game and the Raiders will be coming off of a big game against the Indianapolis Colts that is more than likely going to have playoff implications. They overlook the Chargers, who they beat earlier in the season, and Justin Herbert cooks the Raiders for a fairly easy win.

This puts the Chargers back at 7-7 with two weeks to go.
