4. Donald Parham catches his third touchdown for the LA Chargers

Donald Parham has been nothing but efficient for the LA Chargers this season. The former XFL standout has made two receptions for the Bolts this season, both of which were for a touchdown. I think Parham gets his third reception of the season and his third touchdown as well.

Realistically speaking, there is a good chance that Parham gets more than one reception in this game and his third touchdown might not actually be on his third reception, although it would be pretty awesome if it was.

Virgil Green is out of commission with an ankle injury and this will lead to Parham getting more playing time. It will be interesting to see how the team handles losing its best blocking tight end as Parham is not a good blocker.

However, regardless of blocking ability, this opens the door for him to get an increased snap count and he will continue to be packaged on the field in the red zone. There will be a moment in this game when the Chargers are in the red zone and Parham is on the field.

That will lead to Herbert finding his six-foot-eight tight in the endzone for his third touchdown of the season. Sorry to Hunter Henry, but I really like how Parham matches up in the red zone against any team.
