The Chargers are one of the best teams in the NFL statistically, including number one rankings in passing yardage and passing yardage allowed, and is number two in rushing yardage allowed. Philip Rivers has already compiled more than 2,600 yards and 15 touchdown passes, Antonio Gates has caught 40 passes and 9 TD passes, and linebacker Shaun Phillips has collected seven quarterback sacks. Yet, the Chargers have had five returns against them for touchdowns and all five NFL predictions losses have been by one score or less.
The Texans3 have been in the lead in the AFC South for most of the 2010 NFL predictions season but has lost 2 of the past 3 NFL Picks contests but a combined score of 64-27. The defense against the pass is the worst in the league and the fewest points they have given-up all season is 24. The Texans cannot force turnovers and have had trouble getting to the quarterback, meaning, look out for Rivers. Running back Arian Foster, wide receiver Andre Johnson, and quarterback Matt Schaub all are playmakers and they cannot continue to carry the team.
This is the week the Chargers get the road win they have been seeking as Rivers and his offense cover the Vegas odds on the road with a key 2010 NFL predictions victory.
