The AFC South and AFC West meet in Week 3 of 2022 NFL season.
The Jacksonville Jaguars will return to Cali to face the Los Angles Chargers on Sunday at 4:05 pm ET at SoFi Stadium.
Jacksonville comes into this game flying high after a 24-0 blowout of the Indianapolis Colts. So far, the Doug Pederson/Trevor Lawrence combination has paid more dividends than Urban Meyer and Lawrence. Given the time to find receivers and open up the running game, Lawrence has been solid and is finally reminding everyone why he was nicknamed “Football Jesus.”
The Chargers are coming off a tough loss after a valiant effort against the Kansas City Chiefs, albeit without Keenan Allen. Still with the sixth-lowest odds to win the Super Bowl (+1,500 on FOX Bet), the Chargers are expected to put together a solid run for a top playoff berth. A win here could be the start of a four or five-fight win streak to put them firmly near the top of the standings.

FOX Sports Betting Analyst Pick Geoff Schwartz:
The Jaguars are playing excellent football right now even though they are 1-1 after two weeks. The Football Outsiders DVOA metric has Jacksonville as the second most efficient team in the NFL heading into Week 3.
Head coach Doug Pederson has second-year quarterback Trevor Lawrence playing at the level people expected of him. He is completing 9 percent more passes this season, has more passing yards per attempt and has reduced risk plays.
The Jaguars’ offensive line and running game have improved a lot, and they’ll need those tackles to play well again this weekend against pressure from the Chargers that can mess up an offensive game plan.
On the other side of the ball, the Jaguars’ defense has been outstanding so far this season. They rank fifth in opponents’ passer rating, have forced at least three turnovers in both games and have individual players reaching their potential, including pass-rusher Josh Allen with two sacks and rookie linebacker Devin Lloyd with 17 tackles thus far. moment.
The Chargers could be without Keenan Allen again this weekend, but more importantly, quarterback Justin Herbert is injured. He’s listed as day-to-day with fractured rib cartilage, and while he can play through the pain, he gets tougher once he gets hit on Sunday.
How effective can you be through gaming? Hard to know.
The Chargers can try to lean on their running game for offense, but that hasn’t been a good thing this season so far. They rank 31st in the NFL with 2.7 yards per attempt.
I’ll gladly take a confident Jaguars team to cover all seven points against a Chargers team that always leaves me wanting more.
To choose: Jaguars (+7 at FOX Bet) lose by less than 7 points (or win outright)
