What have ween been saying over the last few weeks when it comes to the Chargers?

Sometimes, teams just don’t now how to win, and it defies all X and O logic.

It’s why we went with Miami a few weeks ago – and got it – and it’s why we were all in on New England last week before it won 45-0.

The Chargers know how to lose close games in strange and creative ways, and then came last week when it all melted down. Give credit to Bill Belichick for being amazing against rookie quarterbacks, but it was the first time that Justin Herbert looked off.

The Chargers played like a team that’s been through an emotion tussle all season long, because they have been with all the tough defeats.

Atlanta knows just a wee bit about gagging away games – forgetting that Super Bowl, the Dallas and Detroit games this year were brutal.

There’s a lot not to like about this. Atlanta doesn’t have a ground game, the Charger offense has been great through the air, this is a banged up Falcon team, the defense didn’t generate any takeaways against the Patriots that that’s about to change …

Los Angeles will play better. They’re at home for the third time in four games, but the Falcons aren’t playing the Saints – that was the opponent in two of the last three games.

There but for the meltdown against the Lions, Atlanta would be on a nice little non-Saint run. The secondary will get hit hard, but the run D will be strong, and until proven otherwise …

Assume the Chargers will lose another close game.
