The Chargers are preparing to play their second consecutive road game as they travel to Minnesota to take on the Vikings.
Coming in with a 1-1 record, the Chargers will be tasked with trying to slow down the juggernaut that is Adrian Peterson. Also on offense, quarterback Teddy Bridgewater continues to improve with each and every game.
Defensively, the team features safety Harrison Smith and defensive lineman Sharrif Floyd. Second-year linebacker Anthony Barr still has a lot to learn, but he flashes solid ability here and there.
In the return game, Cordarrelle Patterson has game-breaking speed and is a threat to take it to the house each and every time he touches the ball.
Considering that I’ll be doing a game preview breaking down both teams later this week, I will not ramble any further and get right to predicting the offensive game stats for your San Diego Chargers.
Philip Rivers: 27-37 341 yards passing three TDs and no interceptions
Melvin Gordon: 19 rushes 111 yards and one TD
Danny Woodhead: 8 rushes 38 yards
Branden Oliver: 3 rushes 11 yards
Keenan Allen: 7 receptions for 94 yards
Danny Woodhead: 6 receptions for 64 yards and one TD
Stevie Johnson: 4 receptions for 61 yards and one TD
Ladarius Green: 4 receptions for 44 yards and one TD
Melvin Gordon: 3 receptions for 62 yards
Malcom Floyd: 2 receptions for 41 yards
John Phillips: 1 reception for 11 yards
As you can see from my projections, I expect the Chargers’ offense to click on all cylinders on Sunday. After uneven performances through two games, it would seem like the offense is ready to start rolling.
It is uncertain as to whether or not tight end Ladarius Green will suit up against the Vikings. After complaining of concussion-like symptoms following Week 2, the fourth-year vet is listed as questionable for the game. It is expected that he will be a game-time decision.
Are you as optimistic about the Bolts’ offense as I am?
