Jets vs. Chargers: Five Bold Predictions

NFL: Los Angeles Chargers at New York Jets Vincent Carchietta-USA TODAY Sports

This would appear to be the Jets most winnable game on the schedule, but it is really stretching the definition of winnable. It almost feels like the Jets losing by single digits counts as a win this season because so many of the games have been catastrophes. However, the addition of Joe Flacco added 3 quarters of quality football, so maybe the Jets will look competitive this weak against another 2 win team. Probably not, but let’s go bold:

Disclaimer: Bold Predictions are not realistic expectations for the game, but rather something that is unlikely to happen, yet possible. These predictions are pro-Jets, yet stretch the boundaries of probability. Claiming that the Jets score 20 points is not a Bold Prediction, nor is claiming that the Jets score 700 points. These predictions must be within the bounds of possibility, but also highly improbable. As always, the final score prediction remains a realistic guess at the result of the game and does not relate to the Bold Predictions.

Here are my five bold predictions for today’s game:

  • Three Jets catch a touchdown pass.
  • Joe Flacco passes for over 300 yards and 4 touchdowns.
  • Denzel Mims scores a rushing touchdown.
  • The Chargers turn the ball over at least 4 times.
  • The Jets record 6 sacks.

Final Score: Jets 22, Chargers 24
