One of the more lopsided Week 16 games as the playoff-chasing Chargers travel to Houston to take on the 3-11 Texans. I don’t hold out much hope for the Texans in this one and think it’s a case of how many points the Chargers put up more than anything.
Sophomore passer Justin Herbert has staked his claim to be considered amongst the upper echelon of QBs in the NFL this season, and with his God-given ability to throw the ball and big-bodied stature, it’s easy to see why many think he’ll be challenging guys like Patrick Mahomes and Josh Allen for years to come. The former Oregon man has two or more TD passes in ten of his last twelve games, and against a poor Texans defense I’d expect him to make that eleven in thirteen.
Spread: Chargers -10.5
Game Prediction: Chargers 40-13 Texans
