It's been a really up-and-down start to the season for the Chargers who lost Joey Bosa for multiple weeks, got smoked at home by the Chiefs, and then went into Buffalo and made quick work of the Bills. This week, though, it's going to likely be another "down" week with the Rams and their team that has very few holes. Yes, Derek Carr threw for 303 yards against them, though it took 40 attempts to do it and he didn't throw a single touchdown. Rivers is good enough not to bomb, but his offensive line is going to be under duress this week, something that Rivers hasn't experienced much over the last 18 games, as he's been sacked just 21 times in that span. The linebackers are the weak point that Rivers should attack with Melvin Gordon and Austin Ekeler, while Keenan Allen doesn't have a terrible matchup, either. You shouldn't play a quarterback against the Rams if you can help it, making Rivers a very iffy QB2.
