San Diego Chargers (+2) at Buffalo Bills
Has any team been dealt a tougher hand to start the season than the San Diego Chargers? The Cardinals, on the road, on Monday Night Football. The defending champion Seattle Seahawks. The … Buffalo Bills? On paper, this was the only ‘sure win’ when the year began. Now, it appears as daunting a task as the first two games.
Both teams are coming off emotional home wins, and Buffalo has the added benefit of sitting at home while San Diego travels across the country for a 1 p.m. game. The fact that no one has fully bought into the Bills adds to the chip on their shoulder, but they have a history of early season success negated by season’s end. In the past three seasons, Buffalo is a combined 6-3 in their first three games, but finished 6-10 each year.
In an attempt to foresee the direction of both the Chargers and Bills going forward, San Diego has the brighter future. The Chargers win by a field goal and beat the spread.
