Week 11 vs Kansas City Chiefs: 33-27 WIN

So I am predicting the Chargers to get blown out by the 49ers but beat the Kansas City Chiefs? Yes, yes I am. The Chargers and Chiefs always play a close game and as bad as the Chargers defense has been, it has always matched up nicely against Kansas City. Derwin James is the Travis Kelce stopper and the Chargers do an effective job of limiting the deep pass against the Chiefs.

This is going to be a classic kitchen sink game for the Bolts. They will throw everything at the Chiefs as they will be 5-4 on the year and will need a big win over them to keep their playoff and division hopes alive. It will be one extremely desperate team against a comfortable team and the Bolts will edge out Kansas City in overtime.

Week 12 at Arizona Cardinals: 44-41 WIN

This is going to be the Cleveland Browns game from last season. These are two teams that are not coached very well and have bad defenses. The Chargers may have their limitations at receiver but the Cardinals have the limitation of inconsistent quarterback play.

Both of those limitations won't matter much in this game as Herbert will have his best game of the year to this point as his ribs should be rounding into shape at this point. Murray will use his athleticism to burn this Chargers' defense.

In the end, the Chargers will walk away with a game-winning field goal in the closing moments to move to 7-4 on the season.
