This is a game the Cowboys have to win. If you don’t believe me just take a look at the schedule, and you’ll know what I’m talking about. The Chargers have been playing above the level expected from them before the season started. Phillip Rivers is playing like in the old good days and, all around this seems like a renewed team. Nevertheless, the Cowboys have a larger talent base and should take care of business.
Prediction: Cowboys 24 – Chargers 20

The Cowboys travel to San Diego to battle the Chargers in my first toss up game of the year. (Click here to view my schedule breakdown). There are so many ways to look at this game.

The Cowboys will win because:
1.They know they cant beat Denver the following game.
2.The Defense is stronger than its been in years.
3. The Offensive line is coming together to help the running game
The Cowboys will lose because:
1. The Chargers do not want to go 1 and 3.
2. The Cowboys do not react well to success.
3. The Cowboys have not won the 4th game on their schedule in 10 years.
The Chargers defense has been terrible. Look for Romo to have a high amount of attempts and possibly a 300 plus yard game.
