The Los Angeles Chargers are heading across the pond to square off with the Tennessee Titans. This is the first time the Chargers have been in London since 2008.
Los Angeles Chargers fans better wake up early if they want to see their team in action on Sunday morning. The Chargers head to London for the first time in 10 years and will start the game at 6:30 a.m. PST.
Personally, I plan on waking up at six to try and catch the game, but we all know how that might work out on a Sunday morning. We pretty much have football for the entire day, though, and what gets better than that?
This is a tricky game for the Chargers. While the Chargers are the favorites entering the game over the Tennessee Titans, the massive change of timezone is going to have an impact on the game. The good thing is that the team left from Cleveland instead of coming all the way back to LA and then to London.
This might be the hardest Chargers game this year to really get a grasp off. Thus, the staff here at LA Sports Hub will give you our predictions.
Jamaal Artis (8-0): 30-14, Los Angeles Chargers
The Chargers playing in London feels like a trap game for a team that seems like they’re on a roll, but they face a Tennessee Titans that have scored 12 points in their last two games.
Jeremy Bezich (8-1): 27-14, Los Angeles Chargers
The Chargers and Titans meet across the pond with both teams heading in opposite directions. The Chargers have stringed together a couple of big wins and look to continue that trend. The Chargers are the better team and will win this game.
Lamarr Fields (7-2): 29-14, Los Angeles Chargers
Redan Lopez: (6-1): 31-17, Los Angeles Chargers
The Chargers are the superior team and firing on all cylinders offensively. They are getting contributions by several different players led by QB Philip Rivers. This game will be much of the same.
The Titans will come out strong to make up for the embarrassment against Baltimore last week, getting shutout. However, the Chargers will get better as the game goes on.
I see Rivers throwing at least one deep touchdown in this game, with Melvin Gordon and Austin Ekeler both getting a touchdown on the ground.
The Titans will show their weakness in the passing game which leaves much to be desired. Titans QB Marcus Mariota and the whole Titans offense will continue to be frustrating to watch.
Sarah Maninger (6-0): 35-17, Los Angeles Chargers
The Chargers have gotten off to a good start this season, and as they head to London to play the Titans, I think they’ll play a great game for a new crowd on a new continent.
Jason Reed (8-2): 23-20, Los Angeles Chargers
This game worries me as a Chargers’ fan. First of all, the massive jump in time zones is something that is going to have an impact. While the Titans are also experiencing a timezone change, not nearly as significant as the Chargers.
Plus, this has all the makings of a trap game. The Chargers have found their groove and the Titans have lost the last two games.
Prior to those two losses, the Titans were known for somehow staying around in every single ball game. I think this is another one of those games that the Titans stick around in with the Chargers just narrowly getting the win.
