Denver has been a mess this season and will have to travel to play Los Angeles on Monday night. The Chargers have won two games in a row, but their defense has not been very good. The Los Angeles offense has been playing well, but will face a good Denver defense. I like the Chargers in this game, especially with how Denver has played this season.
