It seems odd to think that a side is in a bad spot heading into Week 1, but the Chargers just don’t match up well with the Washington Football Team.

They are rolling out an offensive line that gave up far too many hits on Justin Herbert last season against arguably the best defensive line group in the NFL.

Even though the second year quarterback is coming into this game on the back of a full offseason with plenty of talent at his side, he could be in for a very rough afternoon running for his life.

On top of that, in spite of the improvements in sports science over the years, there’s still something that bears watching when a west coast team heads to the eastern seaboard for an early window game.

Verdict

The Washington head to head price has come in already this week so if they move into favouritism, don’t hesitate backing them at a small handicap.
