Los Angeles Chargers vs New York Jets

Bryce Petty should look to air it out against the Chargers

The over/under total for the contest has been set at 42.5 points. Have thoughts on how the Chargers and Jets are performing? The public betting in this game has 63 percent of the wagers going on the Chargers on the road. The loss snapped the Chargers four-game win streak and was just their third loss in the past 10 games. Los Angeles is now 7-7 on the season and 7-6-1 against the spread.

Kicker Nick Rose, claimed off waivers last Monday, missed a 47-yard field goal to end the Chargers' first second-half possession.

Los Angeles Chargers' Melvin Gordon (28) rushes for a touchdown as New York Jets inside linebacker Darron Lee (58) closes in during the second half of an NFL football game Sunday, Dec. 24, 2017, in East Rutherford, N.J. That possession ended with a 1-yard run by Melvin Gordon, his 12th touchdown of the season. The defense is being led by Joey Bosa, who has 61 tackles and 11.5 sacks.

Follow along as we bring you live updates and analysis from the game from kickoff through the final whistle. Josh McCown broken his hand in recent action and is on IR so Bryce Petty will be under center today. But New York only gained three more yards, the drive fizzling out when Petty couldn't connect with Robby Anderson on fourth down. He has one TD with two interceptions.




In the first half, Bilal Powell led all Jets running backs with 59 yards on 7 carries.

The Chargers seem like they should be able to take care of business today, but Los Angeles is known for letdown performances as well.

With nothing to lose, the Jets started the game with some trickery.

Chargers (7-7) quarterback Philip Rivers said his squad simply fell apart during their 30-13 loss to Kansas City in a showdown for first place in the AFC West.

What I didn't like: The Chargers still can't defend against the run.
