Chargers End Skid, Look to Buffalo Next

When the Chargers were 3-1, everyone thought the AFC West would go back to the Chargers. Then the unexpected happened, the Chargers dropped six straight games as did their place in the standings as they fell to last place in the West. But the Chargers were able to snap their 6 game skid against the Jaguars on Monday Night Football.

It was all Chargers early and it stayed that way as the Chargers won 38-14.  They scored on 5 of their first 6 drives and in total Philip Rivers threw for 294 yards and three touchdowns.

The Chargers are now 5-7 and to even think about the playoffs, they need to win out. That doesn’t even include the other loads of  help they will need to jump the Broncos and Raiders for the AFC West crown.

The Chargers start that journey Sunday when they return home to take on the Bills.  The Bills are in their own skid. After starting 5-2, The Bills have lost 5 straight and with each loss, are seeing their playoff chances slip away.

This is a favorable match-up. The Bills are without star running back Fred Jackson who they lost for the season. However, the most favorable of all match-ups in this game is that Philip Rivers will take on a defense with no pass rush. They only have 3 sacks during their five game losing streak.

Outcome: The Bills inability to the quarterback will allow Rivers to have another great game. Add that along with the play of Ryan Mathews who is showing you what he can do when healthy and this one has Chargers written all of it. The Chargers win 31-14.
