Chargers vs Cardinals Highlights
The Los Angeles Chargers will be hoping they are one of the teams to beat this year as they build around star QB Justin Herbert and second-year coach Brandon Staley. They have running back Austin Ekeler coming off a career year and Mike Williams and Keenan Allen back as their wideout duo. They also invested in the off-season by snagging JC Jackson and Khalil Mack, and they secured the long-term future of Derwin James. That should improve what was a porous defense last season and give some better chances to a dangerous returning offense.
Midway in the 2021 season, the Cardinals looked like a safe bet to get the number 1 seed in the NFC, but they crumbled down the stretch 1-4 and were dumped out of the playoffs by the eventual champions. Their division looks tough again, with only Seattle seemingly weakened in the off-season. They added Marquise ‘Hollywood’ Brown via trade and re-signed Kyler Murray to a big contract extension. Can they flip the narrative and prove themselves to be winners in 2022?
The Cards have only won 1 of the last 5 meetings against the Bolts, with that win coming at home in 2018 by a narrow margin of 18-17. The last matchup was a dominant Charger victory by a score of 45-10, with Phillip Rivers posting a QBR of 138.3. Do the NFL betting odds see a similar result here? Probably not, as the Cardinals have come a long way since the Josh Rosen era. Nevertheless, LA is the more talented team here and should have enough to get a victory.
