Los Angeles Chargers
The Los Angeles Chargers come into the playoffs off of a loss, getting beat by the Denver Broncos in Week 18. That did not impact the playoff positioning of the Chargers, as the Baltimore Ravens lost and were not able to overtake them in the standings. Here, the Bolts will look to overcome their recent struggles to earn a win on Wild Card weekend.
The last time the Chargers played the Jaguars, Justin Herbert had just come off of a fracture to his rib cartilage. Los Angeles was beaten by four touchdowns in that game, and a healthy Herbert should at least give the Chargers a chance to avenge that regular season loss.
Surprisingly, the Jacksonville Jaguars are one of the hottest teams in the NFL coming into the postseason. They have won five games in a row, and clinched the AFC South with a win over the Tennessee Titans in Week 18. Jacksonville will look to keep their momentum rolling with a win at home to move into the Divisional round.
Jacksonville's pass defense is going to be key in this game, as they can put the Chargers away by slowing down Justin Herbert through the air. With the Chargers struggling so much to run the football, Jacksonville stopping the pass could lead to a runaway win for the team from Duval County.
