You want to talk about a WTF weekend, SMH. This very well could be the weekend the Chiefs secure a playoff spot and the rest of the division could be pretty much eliminated. Let get to it
It was not a bad game but it was not a good one either. Their 3rd down efficiency was flat out horrible. Justin Herbert was 31 of 52 (59.6%) for 316 yards with a touchdown and a interception. Austin Eckler returned and had 14 carries for 44 yards with 11 receptions for 85 yards. The defense had 3 sacks with 7.5 tackles for loss with 2 forced fumbles and recoveries and 1 interception. Micheal Badgley was 1 for 1 on fieldgoals but 0 for 1 on extra points. This was another close but no cigar for the Chargers.
This game was lost before the the first snap happened. Denver played with a wide receiver at quarterback due to Covid 19. Kendel Hinton was 1 for 9 (11.1%) for 13 yards and 2 interceptions becoming the first player since 1998 (Ryan Leaf) to have more incompletions than touchdowns. Royce Freeman had 8 carries for 50 yards. Noah Fant had 1 receptions for 13 yards. The Defense had 3 sacks and 6.5 tackles for loss and 1 interception. Brandon McManus was 1 for 1 on fielfgoals. This was just a bad game all around.
This offense is stupid. Mahomes and Hill went flat out nuts in this game. Mahomes was 37 of 49 (75.5%) for 462 yards and 3 touchdowns with 4 carries for 28 yards and 1 fumble. Clyde Edwards-Helaire had 11 carries for 37 yards. Tyreek Hill had 13 receptions for 269 yards and 3 touchdowns. The Defense had 2 sacks with 3 tackles for loss and 2 interceptions. Harrison Butker was 2 for 2 on fieldgoal and 3 for 3 on extra points. This game was not as close as the score says it was.
This was a blood letting. You cannot win turning the ball over 5 times. This team was not ready to play and that is on the coaching staff. Carr was 22 of 34 (64.7%) for 215 yards with a interceptions for a touchdown and 3 fumbles. Josh Jacobs had 7 carries for 27 yards and a fumble. Hunter Renfrow had 7 receptions for 73 yards. The Defense had 1 sack with 5.5 tackles for loss and 1 interception. Daniel Carlson was 2 for 2 on fieldgoals. This was the worse showing for this team in years and that is saying something.
New England Patriots at Los Angeles Chargers
This game will be very close and should come down to the last possession. This is the game that the Chargers win to get HC Lynn another year at the helm.
Chargers 24 Patriots 21
Denver Broncos at Kansas City Chiefs
This is the worse time to be playing this Kansas City Juggernaut. Expect the Chiefs to keep the peddle to the medal.
Chiefs 34 Broncos 20
Spread: +14 Broncos
Las Vegas Raiders at New York Jets
Derek Carr is 0-2 against the Jets and that streak will continue. This is the game that Gruden and Guenther seats will start to heat up.
Jets 27 Raiders 21
Spread: -8.5 Raiders
Week 11: 3-1 Season: 27-10
Time to buy a new tv. After the Raiders lose this weekend I can assure you that the remote will be going through the old one. Oh well……another disappointing year with so much potential.
