The Arizona Cardinals just don't know how to finish games, and playing at home hasn't helped them the last two seasons. You can say similar things about the Los Angeles Chargers, as it feels like all of their games come down to the wire and then end with a Herbert interception. However, the Chargers are getting guys back from injury and that helps. The Chargers have simply shown more signs of life this year, and they have a more consistent offense. I'll lay the field goal.
