The Chargers are set to head east to Buffalo in Week 12 and will be stuck playing in the early window, as well. It’s a tough outing since it will essentially be 10am to them, but these are the rigors of the NFL sometimes.
Pete Prisco of CBS Sports believes Sunday’s contest will be closer than many probably expect as he’s predicting the Bills to barely edge the Bolts 33-30. That checks out since it’s a one-score game that likely comes down to the final drive or play.
“This is a long trip for the Chargers against a team coming off a bye,” says Prisco. “This should be fun to watch with two good offenses with two big-play quarterbacks. The defenses have struggled, so we should see fireworks if the weather is OK, and it is supposed to be near 50 degrees and sunny. So look for points, with the Bills and Josh Allen getting the best of it.”
Aside from Patrick Mahomes, this game likely consists of the two strongest arms in the NFL. I truly hope both passers just let it rip and drop bombs all day long. This game as the potential to be one of the most fun-to-watch games of the season and I seriously cannot wait.
