    17-14 Chargers. Late field goal pulls it out.

    The thread should be titled .. "Expert" Picks ..

    Isn't CBS one of those sites that perennially pick against the Bolts?

    FWIW- I read on the site earlier in the week that they all think Chargers will win the game, but the ones who picked the Titans didn't think they would cover the spread.

    With the spread currently at SD -10, they are not off.

    It will be rainy and messy. That usually equates to a low scoring game.

    Here's what I see. Lendale White gets 2 rushing touchdowns throught the game and Bironas gets a field goal.

    That would put them at 17

    The first TD in the First half and the second late in the 4th.


    Now for SD.

    Gates TD early in the 1st.

    Fumble recovery for TD Late in the 1st. I will give it to igor or Castillo.

    Young Sacked by Shanwe or Shawn (Take you Pick) and taken out for the rest of the game.

    Chambers TD early in the 2nd.

    LT TD just before the Half.

    Then it really starts to pour. It is going to rain you know...

    Kassim osgood knocks the crap of the reciver on the opening kickoff and forces a fumble and its recovered for a TD.

    LTs second rushing TD of the game. late in the 3rd

    and keading kicks one for 3 halfway in the 3rd.

    I do think Rivers will get sacked twice.....

    I think Young or Collins will get sacked a combined total of 5 times...

    Final Score

    17-45 Chargers


    Am i close?

    I rewatched the NFLN replay of the Titans and Chargers week 14 game. Man the frist three quarters was nasty. The Titans had a LOT of after the whistle crap going on that the refs ignored.

    They ran the ball well, but that was without Castillo. Lets see what Castillo can do to LenDale, because Castillo is going to be fresh!

    We will have to wear fat Albert and VB down quick though, we cant keep the score close. The Titans dont play that well on the road. So lets take control and WIN!

    That was a brutal game, but we're the healthiest that we've been all year & (not that it matters much, IMO) the Tit-mice are beat up.

    We'll wear them down much earlier this time & get out to a faster start. They aren't built for the come-from-behind type of wins.

    LT is gonna get his first playoff victory tomorrow. I feel it. :tup:

    Our offense can score at least 30
    and our defense won't give up more than 17

    sproles could add a kickoff return
    and maybe #31 gets one also.

    titans 17
    BOLTS 44
