Chargers Seeking Bounce Back Road Win
The loss incurred last Sunday cannot be attributed to Justin Herbert and the Chargers’ offense. Despite a commendable effort where the Chargers racked up 34 points, victory eluded them by just a mere two points.
Justin Herbert showcased his prowess by amassing 228 passing yards and a touchdown, with 76 of those yards finding their target in the capable hands of Keenan Allen, who hauled in six receptions but couldn’t quite reach the end zone. Austin Ekeler also contributed significantly, boasting 16 carries for 117 rushing yards and a touchdown.
Although Mike Williams was lost during the game, but he managed to secure four receptions for 45 yards. Williams appears to be able to play in this game, which would give Herbert another option to throw to, and another tough guy for the Titans to defend.
However, the Chargers’ defense struggled to apply pressure on Tua Tagovailoa, failing to sack him throughout the entire game. Despite the Chargers’ solid performance, they fell short in their season opener.
Titans Hoping Game Two Improvement from Opener
Turning our attention to the Tennessee Titans, the spotlight naturally falls on Derrick Henry, who initially displayed promise but ultimately tapered off, accumulating 15 carries for 63 yards in his NFL Player Stats. Ryan Tannehill, on the other hand, had a subpar performance, completing just 16 of 34 passes for 198 yards and throwing three interceptions.
DeAndre Hopkins, the new addition to the Titans’ receiving corps, led the team with seven receptions and 65 yards. Hopkins will likely be the top target for the Titans to use in the pass game the entire season.
The Titans also introduced Tyjae Spears as their backup new running back, who should see an expanded role as the season progresses. Tennessee’s upcoming schedule includes a home game, followed by consecutive matchups against Ohio-based teams.
In Week 3, the Titans will face the Browns, and in Week 4, they’ll host the Cincinnati Bengals. With a roster boasting several talented running backs, Tennessee Titans games promise to be intriguing affairs.
Chargers vs Titans Betting Prediction | Chargers Top Titans at Home
Justin Herbert, Austin Ekeler, Keenan Allen, and company know the importance of getting wins, especially out of the AFC West. The Chargers got lucky, and Kansas City lost, and Denver did as well. The only team in the division to win was the Las Vegas Raiders. You cannot lose too many games, or you will not be staying in the divisional race.
Look for the Chargers to bounce back and grab a road win. The Titans are a mess. They turn the ball over too much and will do so again in this game.
When you go to make your Week 2 bets – betting the Los Angeles Chargers -3 over the Tennessee Titans in this Week 2 affair is the way to go.
