With a 4-3 record this season, the Los Angeles Chargers are coming off a much-needed bye week. Heading into the bye, the Chargers lost to the Seattle Seahawks. This week, they face another NFC team, the Atlanta Falcons. The Falcons have a high-scoring offense, so the Chargers defense better be ready.

The Atlanta Falcons come into this game as 3.5-point underdogs. Although it isn’t a surprise that they’re underdogs, we could see them winning this game. They recently beat the Carolina Panthers 37-34 and this offense is working as one right now. The Chargers might be a tough team, but don’t be surprised to see an upset here.

Chargers vs. Falcons Preview, Trends and Stats

As the Chargers head into this game, our biggest question surrounds their defense. This defense has struggled all season, allowing 27 points per game. They rank 31st in the NFL in points allowed and it has been a big reason why they’re losing.

On offense, they’re averaging 23.4 points per game, ranking 11th overall. Their offense is great, but their defense can’t seem to match the intensity. Luckily, they still have a 4-3 record and are second in the AFC West. Still, we wonder how long their luck will last.

If their defense continues to give up points, they could end up losing this game. If they do, there are going to be questions surrounding their head coach. At the moment, there are already talks surrounding his ability to lead the team.

The Atlanta Falcons have one of the best offenses in the NFL. They rank sixth in points per game, averaging 25 points per game. Similar to the Chargers. However, the Falcons have an awful defense, one that allows 25.6 points per game.

For the Falcons to win this game, they’ll need to find a way to play better defense. If they focus on their running game, they can at least attempt to control the clock better. On average, the Falcons are putting up 158.1 rushing yards per game, so expect a run-heavy attack.

Chargers vs. Falcons Picks

Between the Los Angeles Chargers and Atlanta Falcons, this game is a tough pick. The Chargers are one of the best offenses in the league, but their defense has a lot of trouble. We’ve seen them lose games because of this defense and we think that’s what will happen here.

With that being said, the Atlanta Falcons are our upset pick for this game. The team is one of the best at running the ball and can do that to control the clock. Look for the Falcons to pull off a huge upset this weekend.
