Fearless Freddie’s Football Forecast

SLUMPING. With two horrid losses in a row, the Buffalo Bills are a team in free fall. This weekend’s trip to the West Coast will not help matters.

Expect the Los Angeles Chargers to send the Bills to another embarrassing defeat.

Freddie sees it this way:

CHARGERS 31, Bills 17

HOME teams are capitalized. Teams picked to win are listed first, followed by the expected margin of victory. The official Las Vegas odds are in parentheses.
