Weekly Grade and Predictions

Turkey day has come and gone and we all have gained a few extra pounds. We are now preparing for the Christmas rush. The season is getting very interesting and this division is wrapped tighter than a drum. One game separates the division and there are plenty of games left for any team to make a move. Let’s roll!

The offense was bad and turned the ball over and the defense could not stop the run. Justin Herbert was 28 of 44 (63.6%) for 303 yards with 2 touchdowns and 2 interceptions, he also had 4 carries for 36 yards. Austin Ekeler had 12 carries for 31 yards with 6 receptions for 68 yards and a touchdown. Keenan Allen had 7 receptions for 85 yards. The defense had a sack and 2 tackles for loss with a interception. Dustin Hopkins was 0 for 1 on fieldgoals and 1 for 1 on extra points. A loss is always bad but to a division foe is worse.
Grade: D-

The Broncos defense was everywhere and made life a living hell for the Chargers. Teddy Bridgewater was 11 of 18 (61.1%) for 159 yards and a touchdown with 2 carries for 10 yards and a touchdown. He was injured and left the game for several drives and Drew Lock came in the game. Lock was 4 of 7 (57.1%) for 26 yards and a interception. Melvin Gordon had 17 carries for 83 yards with 1 reception for 5 yards. Javonte Williams had 3 receptions for 57 yards with 14 carries for 54 yards and a touchdown. The defense had 3 sacks and 6 tackles for loss with 2 interceptions and one was a pick 6. Brandon McManus was 4 for 4 on extra points. The Broncos were 8 for 11 on 3rd downs. They were great in this game.
Grade: A

The offense was great and the defense did enough to help the Raiders get a much needed win on Turkey day. Derek Carr was 24 of 39 (61.5%) for 373 yards and a touchdown with 2 carries for 21 yards. Josh Jacobs had 22 carries for 87 yards and a touchdown with 2 receptions for 25 yards.
