The NFL is set up with another great week of action on Sunday. Twelve games will be up on the board throughout November 22. One of these games will be between the New York Jets and the Los Angeles Chargers. These two teams have struggled throughout this season, but will both look for a big win on Sunday. This game will kick off at around 4:05 PM Eastern time.
New York has earned a record of 0-9 throughout this season, which has them sitting in last place of the AFC East. The Jets have not been able to get much of anything going throughout this season, which could be an issue on Sunday afternoon. New York will need to change things up if they want to change their fortune with a win in Week 11.
The Chargers have put up a record of 2-7 so far this season, which has them sitting in last place of the AFC West. Los Angeles has been in every one of their games this season, but have not been able to finish strong. The Chargers will look to bounce back with a much needed win on Sunday. If Los Angeles can come out strong in this one, it could be enough to give them the win.
These two teams have not been able to get anything going so far this season, which has led to their poor record. Los Angeles is much better than their record implies, but they have not been able to finish off the wins. The Chargers will have a great chance to get their third victory of the season as they meet up with the winless Jets on Sunday afternoon.
The Jets played against the New England Patriots in Week 9 before their bye week. Joe Flacco threw three touchdowns, two of them to Breshad Perriman. Cam Newton rushed for two touchdowns, while Rex Burkhead rushed for another touchdown. Nick Folk went 3-3 on field goals, including the game winner as time expired. The Patriots were able to win 30-27.
Los Angeles faced off against the Dolphins in Week 10 in Miami. Justin Herbert threw for two touchdowns and rushed for another in the losing effort. Tua Tagovailoa had two passing touchdowns, while Salvon Ahmed had another rushing touchdown. Jason Sanders went 3-4 on field goals as the Dolphins were able to win 29-21.
These two teams are coming off tight losses in their last game. The Jets have had their bye week since the loss to New England, which will give them extra preparation coming into this one. Los Angeles has struggled to finish out games and will need to finish strong against New York. If the Chargers cannot finish strong, it could give New York an opportunity to earn their first win.
Joe Flacco will get the start again for New York as Sam Darnold is out with injury. Flacco has not been great this season, but has stepped into the starter role after Darnold’s injury problems. He has thrown for 659 yards, 4 touchdowns and 2 interceptions on the season. Flacco went 18-25 for 262 yards, 3 touchdowns and 1 interception in the Jets loss to the Patriots.
The Chargers have Justin Herbert starting under center this season. Herbert has had a phenomenal rookie season so far and will look to keep it up against the Jets. He has thrown for 2333 yards, 19 touchdowns and 6 interceptions. Herbert has rushed for 176 yards and 3 touchdowns. Last week, Herbert went 20-32 for 187 yards, 2 touchdowns and 1 interception.
Los Angeles has the edge in this one with Herbert starting under center. Last week was one of Herbert’s more poor starts on the season and he still threw for two touchdowns and rushed for another. The Jets will need Flacco to put up another performance like against the Patriots if they want to keep up with this Chargers offense on Sunday. If Los Angeles can shut down Flacco, it should be enough to give the Chargers a win.
New York has not been able to get anything going on either side of the ball, which is a big reason why they are winless. The Jets have been able to score 121 points and gain 2394 yards of offense, which are both 32nd in the NFL. New York has given up 268 points to opponents, which is 30th in the league. The Jets have also given up 3624 yards, which is 28th in the NFL.
The Chargers have been dominant on offense this season. Los Angeles has been able to score 226 points, which is 17th in the NFL this season. The Chargers have gained 3633 yards of offense, which is 3rd in the league. Los Angeles has struggled on defense though. The Chargers have given up 245 points and 3148 yards, which is 22nd and 12th in the league.
These two teams have struggled throughout this season but Los Angeles has been much better on offense. The Chargers will need to keep up their strong offensive play if they want to win this one. Los Angeles has struggled to keep leads though, but will have a better chance against a New York offense that has not found any rhythm this season.
Los Angeles is coming into this one after a tough loss to the Dolphins last week. I expect the Chargers to come out hot against a team that has not figured anything out this season. The Jets are 0-9 and I imagine that most of the team has packed it up on this season. Los Angeles has had difficulty holding on late, but I believe they will break through as they play a New York team that has looked like a terrible team on both sides of the ball.
BetOnline has the Chargers listed as a -9 ½ against the spread in this one. This gives a big edge to Los Angeles at home. The Jets are flying across the country for this one, which plays in the Chargers favor. Los Angeles has been better than their record implies this season and I think they will break through on this New York defense. If the Chargers can come out strong in this one, I think they will take care of business against the Jets.
