Los Angeles lost a heartbreaker to the Denver Broncos when they met last December, and they left with a heavy heart again this past Sunday. Los Angeles and Denver were almost perfectly matched up, but Los Angeles suffered an agonizing 31-30 loss. Los Angeles was up 24-10 at the end of the third quarter but couldn’t hold on to the lead. Despite their loss, they got to see several of their players rise to the challenge and make noteworthy plays. RB Justin Jackson, who picked up 89 yards on the ground on 17 carries and caught three passes for 53 yards, was the best among equals.
Special teams collected 12 points for the Chargers. K Mike Badgley delivered a perfect 3-for-3 game.
Meanwhile, the Raiders had a touchdown and change to spare in a 16-6 win over the Cleveland Browns this past Sunday. No one had a standout game offensively for Las Vegas, but QB Derek Carr led the way with one touchdown. Carr ended up with a passer rating of 115.50.
Most of the squad’s points came courtesy of special teams, which contributed ten. K Daniel Carlson delivered a perfect 3-for-3 game.
This next matchup is expected to be close, with Los Angeles going off at just a 1.5-point favorite. Those burned by picking them against the spread this past Sunday might want to keep in mind that the squad has never dropped back-to-back games against the spread this season.
The Chargers are a slight 1.5-point favorite against the Raiders, according to the latest NFL odds.
