Patriots Favored Over the Chargers


NFL Week 2 game predictions are coming in from across the internet, and they seem to share one thing in common in regards to Patriots-Chargers game tomorrow: The Patriots are expected to win. That doesn’t really matter to much once the first whistle sounds on Sunday, but it does give you an insight as to what they’re thinking about the Pats. After last week’s Monday night performance on offense, who could blame them?

Well, perhaps Chargers fans, and those that are worried about the Patriots’ defense. Let’s take a look at a round-up of Patriots-Chargers predictions.

  • All of the experts over at ESPN are picking the Patriots in a high-scoring game. Only Bill Simmons dissented, though it was based on the points spread, Chargers (+7).
  • In the Tale of the Tape put together by the NFL Playbook Staff from NFL Network gives the Patriots the advantage on paper.
  • From the NFL GameDay Morning staff, Marshall Faulk, Steve Mariucci, and Michael Irvin picks the Pats while Warren Sapp and Kurt Warner pick the Chargers.
  • Over at CBS Sports, all but one analyst picks the Pats to come out on top.
