Week 13 at Las Vegas Raiders: 38-30 LOSS

Remember how we predicted the Chargers to be the desperate division opponent against the Chiefs and that would lead to an overtime win? That will be the case here with the Raiders. At this point in the year, Vegas will essentially be playing for its playoff life and will throw absolutely everything at the Chargers.

We will see another huge game from Davante Adams and while it would be nice to see Derek Carr turn the ball over as much as he did in Week 1, that kind of thing is not consistent and won't happen in every match-up.

The Chargers come back down to earth a bit (as they always do), splitting with the Raiders to move to 7-5 on the season.

Week 14 vs Miami Dolphins: 30-20 LOSS

The Justin Herbert vs Tua Tagovailoa conversation is going to be interesting heading into this game and is probably going to be made worse by Emmanuel Acho after the game. The worst quarterback will win this matchup as Tua's weapons will be too much for the Chargers to handle.

This is going to be a very similar game to the 49ers game earlier in the season where the Chargers simply don't have the defensive scheme to stop the explosive athletes that Miami has on the offensive side of the ball.

Miami's offense is not as good as the 49ers but it is still very respectable and they will send the house at Justin Herbert and get away with it because of the lack of explosive weapons at receiver for the Bolts.
