Here’s the biggest question that we have right now: REALLY! How good are either of these two teams? The Cowboys are 2-1, but they beat up a Rams team that has no defense and a Giants team that has no pulse. They lost to the Chiefs in Week 2, but it might have been their best holistic defensive performance when you consider the fact that the offense left the team in dire straits for most of the game. The Chargers are 1-2, but we know that the one game they won, they should have lost to the Eagles, and the two games they lost, they should have won against the Texans and the Titans. It’s a horrid dichotomy, and it is an NFL expert handicappers’ nightmare.
Fortunately, we’ve got a good idea about the matchup itself in this game. QB Philip Rivers and his new offense features getting up to the line of scrimmage, leaving plenty of time to analyze the defense. He’s not the swiftest quarterback in the world, but if Rivers can successfully diagnose the blitzes and where they are coming from, he has same great check down options out of the backfield in RB Danny Woodhead and TE Antonio Gates. Don’t be all that shocked if both of these men end up having some pretty darn good games, especially catching passes right in the middle of the defense where blitzing linebackers would have been standing. It’s a bad matchup for the Cowboys, and playing the game on the West Coast isn’t going to help out either. We like San Diego in this one.
