Chargers vs. Broncos Week 17 Preview

Levon Satamian | December 30th, 2018

The LA Chargers came off a brutal loss last week at home against the Baltimore Ravens. They need to win this week and hope the Raiders can pull off a miracle upset by beating the Chiefs. The scenario is simple, Chargers win, Chiefs lose, Chargers clinch home-field advantage. The Chiefs win, they automatically clinch home-field advantage.

As a Chargers fan, I would love to attend a playoff game at the StubHub Center, but, the Chargers play much better on the road then they do at home. Three of the four losses have come at home, and the one road loss was against the Rams in LA. So, the Chargers tend to do better on the road, in hostile environments.

The Chargers lost at the StubHub Center against the Broncos last time these two teams met. But, Broncos RB, rookie sensation, Phillip Lindsay is out. The Chargers should be able to capitalize, win this game, and hope for the Chiefs to somehow lose at home against the Raiders. I think the Chargers and Chiefs win, but if I were to pick one team to win between the two, it would be the Chargers. Not because I don’t trust Patrick Mahomes, but I do not trust the Chiefs defense. It is going to be a good day of football, a lot of playoff scenarios, Chargers just need to focus on winning, and let destiny control the rest. Chargers will defeat the Broncos 28-17.

I think the Chargers are poised for a Super Bowl run. They did lose last week, but, the Ravens played an incredible game, Chargers played their worst game of the season. I have trust in Philip Rivers to lead this team all the way. They only have one road loss, so I believe in this team if they play all the playoff games on the road.
