NFL Best Bets for Week 2
September 15th 2017 - Old Man Winner

LA Chargers -4.5 vs. Miami

If I asked you to name two quarterbacks who perennially are among the league leaders in interceptions you might quickly think of both Phillip Rivers and Jay Cutler. Neither is very keen on protecting the ball. That said, I think when their interceptions are thrown does matter. Without any proof, I have a strong recollection that Cutler's are thrown almost any time during the game, often in critical situations. On the other hand, many of Rivers interceptions are thrown at the end of games when throwing into coverage is required if you want to give your team any chance of winning.

I have always given Rivers credit for this. He is not afraid to hurt his personal stats to try and win a game. He is a fierce competitor who never gives up, unlike Cutler (or Eli Manning - did you see Sunday night's game where he continued to throw nothing but 5 yards down the field, literally until the end of the game, even though his team was down more than one score - completely ridiculous, but I digress. BUM! OK, I'm done now - Loser! Sorry.)

I think this game will come down to who throws the most interceptions, and I think it will definitely be Cutler. Miami has been completely distracted and worn out by the hurricane and they have to fly across the country and play an angry team that should have won their game last week. The Chargers defense looked good last week - better than the score would indicate, and their corners are very solid. Rivers always plays better at the beginning of the year than at the end. He has an improved offensive line, better receivers, and a running back that is quickly becoming elite.

I expect at least one defensive score from the Chargers this week, along with a strong game from Rivers.
