Bengals @ Chargers
Like the Chiefs, the Los Angeles Chargers are having a tremendous season. They host the Cincinnati Bengals this week. The Bengals and quarterback Jeff Driskel, that is.
I think that Chargers pass rusher Joey Bosa is going to have a very good day against the youngster.
The Bengals lost wide receiver AJ Green for the season with a toe injury. That will prove to be a major loss for this team. They rely on the star receiver, especially with an inexperienced quarterback.

The Bengals head to LA to face off against the Chargers. Truth be told, I have no idea how the Bengals are 5-7 given their lackluster offense and 32nd ranked defense. They are missing AJ green and are facing a team that has a top 10 offense and defense.
The Chargers are fighting for playoffs, and while the Bengals aren’t out of contention in the AFC Wild Card race, they aren’t being very contentious. The Chargers, playing at home, will no doubt come out strong and continue to work towards their end goal of playoffs, and I cannot see Cincinnati being able to stop Rivers and his crew.

The Bengals haven’t exactly been dominant as of late. With season-ending injuries to Andy Dalton and AJ Green, Cincinnati will rely heavily on Joe Mixon vs the Los Angeles Chargers.
He will have a big game on the ground, but Jeff Driskel will throw three interceptions.
The Chargers, in contrast, will have a dominant game through the air. Philip Rivers will continue his hot streak and throw four touchdowns.
Although it will be tied in the first quarter, the Chargers will run away with it the rest of the game.
