Los Angeles Chargers
The Chargers enter this LA matchup flashing a 1-1 record that ranks them 3rd in the AFC West. Right now the division is led by the Kansas City Chiefs and the Denver Broncos, both of who are sitting on 2-0 records. Having said that, it’s clear the Chargers need a win this Sunday in order to avoid falling too far behind in the divisional race. Unfortunately for the Chargers, they just happened to be matched up against one of the best teams in the league, who also happens to share a city with them. Looking over the numbers, it’s clear this could turn into a high scoring match. Right now the Rams are averaging 33.5 per game and the Chargers aren’t too far behind that figure with 29.5. Offensive both teams put up similar numbers, over 400 total yards per outing. However, on defense things are much different. The Chargers are giving up a whopping 29 per game while Los Angeles is giving up a slim 6 ½. With that in mind, it’s clear defense will be playing a massive role here.
Players to Watch: Philip Rivers (680 passing yards, 6 TD, 1 INT), Austin Ekeler (116 rushing yards, 0 TD, 0 F), and Keenan Allen (175 receiving yards, 1 TD, 14 REC).
Los Angeles Rams
The Rams have looked brilliant so far this season. Nevertheless, it’s no understatement to say that the team has yet to be put to the challenge. In Week 1 they faced an Oakland Raiders team that decided to trade away it’s best defensive asset a week before. The following week they faced an Arizona Cardinals team that looked like it belonged in the NCAA. With that in mind, the Chargers might be the first real challenge LA has faced this season. All in all, the Chargers aren’t the biggest challenge the NFL has to offer. However, they’re still capable of going toe-to-toe with any offense on any given Sunday. But all things considered, this elite Rams’ defense shouldn’t have too hard of at time securing a few interceptions against Rivers. If that’s the case, expect another dominant Rams win this Sunday.
Players to Watch: Jared Goff (587 passing yards, 3 TD, 1 INT), Todd Gurley II (150 rushing yards, 3 TD, 0 F), and Brandin Cooks (246 receiving yards, 0 TD, 12 REC).
