The SD defense has improved to a middle of the pack unit, which is way better than they were a year ago. Along with home field, they shouldn't have too many problems dealing with an offense that can't get out of it's own way. Now there are lots of cries to start Mike Vick over Geno Smith. I don't know what the answer is there, but neither one of them scare me this Sunday.
On the other side of the ball, the Jets continue to struggle against vertical passing teams. The Chargers can't run the ball without Mathews or Woodhead, but they won't need to in this game. Rivers is playing at an MVP-level and should have more than enough opportunities to move the sticks and put up points.
This is not a good matchup for the NY J-E-T-S.
NFL Pick: SD -6.5.
