NFL Betting Preview: Los Angeles Chargers vs. New England Patriots

December 3, 2023


The Los Angeles Chargers will travel to Foxborough, Massachusetts to face the New England Patriots at Gillette Stadium on Sunday afternoon with kickoff scheduled for 1:00 PM ET, and the game will air on CBS in week 13 of the NFL season.

Los Angeles has struggled this season after last year’s phenomenal season, they enter this game three games below .500 with a record of 4-7 and are in last place in the AFC West while also on a three-game losing streak following Sunday’s 10-20 loss at home against the Baltimore Ravens. The offense has played at a high level this season as they are averaging the 9th most points per game in the NFL with an average of 24.45 points per game while averaging the 10th most passing yards per game with an average of 243.45 passing yards per game, however, the defense has been one of the worst in the NFL as they are allowing an average of 23.45 points per game which is the 4th most in the league. However, the defense should have an easier time dealing with the offense of the New England Patriots in week 13 as the Patriots are one of the lowest-scoring teams in the NFL.

The New England Patriots enter this game with a record of 2-9 which is already tied for the 2nd most losses Bill Belichick has had in a season as the head coach for the Patriots, with 11 being the most and that was in the pre-Tom Brady era back in 2000. The Patriots and Mac Jones have performed abysmally this season as they are averaging the 2nd fewest points per game in the league with an average of 13.45 points per game and Jones is likely done after this season as the starter for New England as he enters this game having completed 224 of 345 attempts for 2,120 yards with 10 touchdowns and 12 interceptions. The Patriots will look to end their four-game losing streak when they host the Los Angeles Chargers on Sunday afternoon in week 13 of the NFL season.
