Lorenzo Reyes: Chargers 21, Jaguars 17
Obviously, the status of Justin Herbert will be the key indicator here. I like L.A. to win, but Jacksonville could use its shutout against the Colts as a bit of a springboard. And with Herbert at least slightly hobbled, the line is just a bit too rich for me.
Safid Deen: Chargers 30, Jaguars 17
Justin Herbert’s pain tolerance will be tested again in his first real start since suffering a rib cartilage injury against the Chiefs. Herbert was unable to extend himself to run a yard for a first down but was able to throw a 35-yard strike into the red zone one play later. He’ll help the Chargers take an early lead over Trevor Lawrence and the Jaguars, who will struggle on the road as they did in Week 1 at Washington.
Lance Pugmire: Chargers 30, Jaguars 17
As of early this week, the expected return of quarterback Justin Herbert makes Los Angeles more than a touchdown favorite, and the over-under is 47.5. That changes if Chase Daniel has to start, especially against a unit that blanked the Colts Sunday.
Jarrett Bell: Chargers 27, Jaguars 23
Nate Davis: Chargers 30, Jaguars 22
Tyler Dragon: Chargers 28, Jaguars 20
