Chargers vs Colts Highlights
Chargers vs Colts is a series that the Chargers have done well in, leading their opponents 19-11 overall. More importantly, they have won 4 of their last 5 encounters, with the most recent being an overtime win in 2019. The Colts have a new quarterback for the second year in a row. They will be hoping for more than the mediocre displays they saw last year, which led them to a 9-8 positive record but kept them well behind their divisional rivals, the Titans.
Home wins proved an issue in 2021 for the Colts. They lost 5 of their 9 games at the Lucas Oil Stadium, so there will need to be some improvements if they are going to challenge Derrick Henry and his teammates this year. Still, this Los Angeles Chargers vs Indianapolis Colts fixture will not be a walkover. The Chargers had the 4th best offense in the regular season last year but were let down by a defense with some star quality but a few weak links. The Chargers’ road form was inconsistent, with a 4-4 finish in games away from LA.
NFL betting odds look good for a road win in this one. If Justin Herbert is still firing on the active roster, then expect yards through the air, as the Chargers finished 3rd in passing yards gained during the 2021 season.
