Minnesota Vikings (3-5) at Los Angeles Chargers (5-3)

Sunday, November 14, 1PM ET

I just can’t with this Minnesota Vikings team. Not only have they tortured their fanbase all season with one nailbiter after another, but they keep coming up on the losing end. The Los Angeles Chargers have done a much better job of stepping up when it matters most.

That’s why I’m leaning heavily towards the Chargers as the winners of this Week 10 showdown. Oh, and the fact that they’ve got one of the league’s most exciting young quarterbacks under center. Sure, Justin Herbert has been a bit bipolar this season, but when he’s on his game he’s a star. Against Minnesota’s suspect defense, he should feast.

It also doesn’t help the Vikings’ chances seeing as the Los Angeles defense has been solid this season. The Minnesota offense has been conservative all season long, which will likely lead to plenty of three-and-outs and ineffective drives for this squad.

It’s already been a long year for the Vikings and it’s about to get that much worse. As talented as this roster is, it’s about to get another punch to the gut in the form of the Chargers offense rolling over them all game long.

Prediction: Chargers win 33-27 | Spread: Chargers (-2.5)
