Cardinals @ Chargers
The Chargers are coming off of a loss to the Denver Broncos last week. The Cardinals’ two victories have come against the San Francisco 49ers.
Los Angeles has so much more firepower on both sides of the ball. Phillip Rivers has been tremendous throwing the football this season. The same cannot be said for Cardinals rookie quarterback Josh Rosen. He has started seven games in his rookie campaign and has thrown nine touchdowns to ten interceptions.
The Chargers got pass rusher Joey Bosa back last week against the Broncos. Bosa should see a better stat line this week, going up against a rookie quarterback.
The only way I could see the Cardinals coming out with a victory is if injuries occur to Los Angeles’ offensive stars.
Chargers 35, Cardinals 13
The 2-8 Cardinals have the worst rated offense in the league, and in my opinion, it’s not even close. The Chargers finally lost at the hands of the Denver Broncos last week, and will be looking to try to keep pace with KC, who also lost.
At 7-3 the Chargers have a very real chance of making the playoffs this year, and will do everything they can down the stretch to do so. And that starts with hosting a bottom of the barrel team, and taking care of business. In no scenario should the Chargers lose this game.
Chargers 31, Cardinals 10
The Chargers caught a break with Kansas City losing against the Rams, which still ensures them a chance at winning the AFC West.
The Chargers will look to start a new winning streak against the Cardinals.
The Cardinals have improved, but Josh Rosen has also thrown four INTs in the past two games. He will throw another two INTs in this game, and Melvin Gordon will have another great game on the ground. Chargers will win easily.
