The Chargers’ current record may not accurately reflect their performance due to their challenging schedule. Their only loss against a team with a losing record was to the Titans this season. Three of their four losses came against the Dolphins (5-2), Cowboys (4-2), and Chiefs (6-1), with their most recent loss to the Chiefs being their only defeat by a margin greater than three points. Additionally, the Chargers have been successful in limiting the production of opposing running backs, allowing an average of just 3.6 yards per rush, which is tied for the sixth-best in the league.
On the other hand, the Bears have an advantageous matchup through undrafted rookie quarterback Tyson Bagent against the struggling pass defense of the Chargers. Los Angeles ranks last in the league in pass defense, surrendering 310.0 passing yards per game. The Chargers also rank last in opponent’s yards per attempt (8.8) and second to last in opponent’s passer rating (105.6).
Furthermore, the Chargers’ quarterback Justin Herbert has struggled significantly over the past three games, especially since fracturing the middle finger on his left hand in Week 4. Prior to the injury, Herbert completed 74.4% of his passes with six touchdowns, zero interceptions, and a rating of 112.9. However, in the three games since then, he has only completed 57.1% of his passes, throwing four touchdowns, four interceptions, and earning a rating of 75.9.
To make your picks for the Bears vs. Chargers game, the SportsLine model suggests taking the over on the point total, predicting a total of 54 points.
