Los Angeles Chargers vs New England Patriots 05/23/2020
Los Angeles Chargers
This team looks to make it back-to-back wins following their 34-27 conquest of Baltimore. The Patriots are unlikely to give them an easy time, a reason why Los Angeles Chargers need to be sharp. On offense, Allen will expect help from guys like Hunter Henry and Melvin Gordon III. Henry holds an overall rating of 87, including 89 in catching. Gordon III, on the other hand, owns an 84 overall ranking. Philip Rivers should provide a boost as well, owning a 94 rank in short pass accuracy and 92 in medium pass accuracy. On defense, Bosa will get help from Casey Hayward Jr. and Melvin Ingram. Hayward has an overall rating of 91 while Ingram has an 88 overall rating to show.
New England Patriots
There is reason to believe that the New England Patriots can defy the odds and pull this one. Their thrashing of Pittsburgh should give them momentum but the Chargers are no pushovers. Brady will be expected to lead them anew but more help is needed. That should come from players like Julian Edelman who owns an overall rating of 87. There is also James White who is part of the Pats’ rushing attack. He owns an overall rating of 83. On defense, Devin McCourty and Donita Hightower should provide Gilmore support. McCourty owns a 92 overall rating while Hightower has 88 overall.
