Meet Cookie, The Good Luck Gnome and see who he is picking in this week’s game against the Chargers…
Chargers 24, Bills 17
Here’s what others think:
This is a long trip for the Chargers, but the good news is they get a Bills team that isn’t very good. This will also be Josh Allen’s first NFL start for the Bills at quarterback. It’s too bad he doesn’t have much help. Chargers get a road victory.
Chargers 28, Bills 10
These two teams last met in Week 11 of the 2017 season. It was Nathan Peterman’s first NFL start and it couldn’t have gone worse. By halftime, he had thrown five interceptions and, mercifully, he was benched. Peterman “won” the starting job last week and the results looked familiar; he was 5 of 18 with two interceptions against the Ravens when coach Sean McDermott again pulled the plug, this time 34 minutes into the game. McDermott said he’d need to review the tape to determine if Peterman would remain in the lineup, but even if he opts for rookie Josh Allen, the Chargers will be at a distinct advantage — on both sides of the ball. Philip Rivers threw for 424 yards and three touchdowns against the Chiefs and Keenan Allen and Melvin Gordon both had 100-plus yards receiving.
Chargers 27, Bills 6
The Bills did their own players no favors by completely botching their quarterback decisions over the last two years. That began in earnest against these Chargers last year, the infamous Nathan Peterman debut. The Chargers should be at something of a disadvantage — coming off a loss, possibly missing Joey Bosa again, playing on the East Coast in an early kickoff — but the Bills’ QB mess negates that.
