2. Joey Bosa has his first multi-sack game of the season

Joey Bosa is primed for a huge game in this one. Bosa has definitely been great thus far in the season but it definitely feels like he has more to bring to the table and it is not really even his fault. All the stars are aligning for Bosa to convert on more sack opportunities in this game and he might just have his best game of the season in Week 4.

Bosa was good in Week 1 and there are absolutely no complaints. He picked up a sack and was getting pressure on the quarterback, whether it be Ryan Fitzpatrick or Taylor Heinicke. Bosa did have two costly roughing the passer calls, one was a correct call and one was a bit outrageous.

Week 2 was not as explosive for Bosa as he was coming up against a backup right tackle. Bosa only recorded two pressures in the game, however, it was not totally his fault. Dallas ran a quick-strike offense in the passing game and heavily relied on the run game

Bosa was extremely disruptive against the Chiefs, putting together 10 pressures and one sack on Patrick Mahomes while essentially playing on one ankle.

This week, Bosa is coming up against the very raw Alex Leatherwood who has struggled early in the season. His ankle is also one week better, so if he was good last week just imagine how good he is this week.

The Raiders also are not the most prolific run team. While they certainly can run the ball, they are probably the worst running team of the four teams the Chargers have played if Josh Jacobs does not play.

Expect a huge game for Joey Bosa on Monday night.
