The San Diego Chargers won an overtime thriller in Atlanta on Sunday in what could be a season-changing result. They’re still just 3-4 on the year, but three of their losses have come by four points or less, and in the fourth loss, they blew a 17-point lead. They might better than their record indicates.

San Diego Chargers

This Week’s Super Bowl Odds: +6600

Last Week: +7500

The Chargers finally caught some breaks on Sunday and won a close game. They’ve been able to find support for franchise quarterback Philip Rivers as second-year running back, Melvin Gordon, is now tied for the league lead in rushing touchdowns with eight. Wideout Tyrell Williams, who’s filling in for injured star Keenan Allen, has compiled 285 yards and a touchdown in his last three games.

The Chargers have a challenging rematch with the defending Super Bowl champs in Denver next week, but have a soft schedule afterward with home games against the Tennessee Titans and Miami Dolphins. If they can somehow beat Denver again, the Chargers could put together a hot streak and move into playoff contention.

 

Indianapolis Colts

This Week’s Super Bowl Odds: +2500

Last Week: +5000

The Colts earned their first road win of the season on Sunday in Tennessee and moved up in the Super Bowl futures market. They’ve now won two of their last three, with the loss coming in overtime in Houston. Quarterback Andrew Luck has shown much-needed improvements; his completion percentage has gone from 61.3% in September to 67.8% in October, and his quarterback rating has also increased from 93.2 in September to 102.4 this month. The Colts’ defense has been tougher, too, allowing 25 points per game over their last three after giving up 31.3 over their first four contests.

 

Moving On Down

Los Angeles Rams

Last Week’s Super Bowl Odds: +7500

This Week: +10000

The Rams’ up-and-down season continued on Sunday with a 17-10 loss to the New York Giants. They compiled a three-game winning streak from Weeks 2 to 4, and now they’ve lost three in a row from Weeks 5 to 7. Quarterback Case Keenum threw four interceptions on Sunday, and Pro Bowl running back Todd Gurley has yet to run for more than 85 yards in a game this season. 

 

Buffalo Bills

Last Week’s Super Bowl Odds: +3300

This Week: +5000

The Bills’ loss in Miami ended their four-game winning streak and shifted their momentum. They pushed an already-injured LeSean McCoy to play, and he aggravated his hamstring injury. Next week they host the New England Patriots, who will want revenge for their shutout loss in Week 4. Then the Bills visit the Seattle Seahawks and the Cincinnati Bengals the following two weeks. The Bills’ hot streak could become a distant memory in just a few weeks’ time.

 

Updated Super Bowl Futures Top Three

1. New England Patriots (+275): It was another solid week for the Patriots, who earned a victory in Pittsburgh.
