The New York Jets just want a win. They know they’re being laughed at by the entire football world, but a win will go a long way in soothing their egos. The Los Angeles Chargers, however, obviously don’t want to be the first team to get victimized by the Jets. Check out our preview of this game below.
Betting Preview for the New York Jets vs Los Angeles Chargers Regular Season Week 11 Game on November 22, 2020
Where: SoFi Stadium, Inglewood
When: Sunday, November 22, 2020, 4:05 PM ET
TV Broadcast: CBS
Betting on the New York Jets (+8.5)
Regular Season Record: 0-9
The good news for the Chargers is that they didn’t lose last week — because they were on a bye in Week 10. But kidding aside, the Jets have shown improvement in their 30-27 home loss to the New England Patriots. Joe Flacco managed to pass for 262 passing yards and three touchdowns against an interception on 18-of-25 completions, as he had fun connecting with Breshad Perriman on multiple occasions. Perriman finished the game with 101 receiving yards and two touchdowns on five receptions, while Denzel Mims added 62 receiving yards on four catches. Flacco is set to start again, as Sam Darnold is not yet fully healed from his shoulder injury. In any case, Flacco made the Jets’ offense look better than it had in most previous games with Darnold calling plays on the field. Flacco could put up another throwback game against the Chargers, who let rookie Tua Tagovailoa pass for two touchdowns without an interception nor sacks taken last week.
The Jets, who are averaging 13.4 points per contest, have seen the total go under in four of their last five games overall.
Betting on the Los Angeles Chargers (-8.5)
Regular Season Record: 2-7
For the first time in quite a while, the Chargers will enter a game in which their fans can factually say that LA is the better team. The Jets are simply atrocious despite what they have shown in the close loss to New England. The Jets are also not a lot better when it comes to covering the spread, as they are only 2-7 against the spread so far this season. On the road, the Jets are 0-4 ATS, so far this season. As for the Chargers, they are eager to snap a three-game skid, and there’s no better opportunity to break it than in a game against a Jets team that is going nowhere this season. In their last game, the Jets lost to the Miami Dolphins on the road, 29-21, as the team struggled to deal with the Fins’ defense. That shouldn’t be much of a problem in Week 11 for the Chargers against the Jets’ stop unit that is allowing 29.8 points per game and 402.7 total yards per contest, 30th and 28th overall in the NFL, respectively.
This should let Herbert showcase his talents and show why he’s one of the best young quarterbacks in the league. Herbert has 2,333 passing yards and 19 touchdowns against six interceptions this season.
The over is 2-0 in the Chargers’ last two games at home.
The Chargers win, 30-21
