Week three features a Thursday night showdown between two top-tier teams

Week 3: Football Pick ‘Em with Coach Larkin

Our third "Game of the Week" will be between the Los Angeles Chargers @ Kansas City Chiefs.

September 15, 2022

Justin Herbert vs. Patrick Mahomes. Two top-five quarterbacks in the NFL headline our matchup on this week’s Thursday Night Football game. With an MVP and a Super Bowl win, Mahomes may seem to have a clear upper hand on Herbert; however, in their four meetings head-to-head, they have an even split 2-2, and both of the Chiefs’ wins came in overtime.

 

Both of these quarterbacks have already led their teams to a strong start. Mahomes threw for five touchdowns and 360 yards in a blowout versus the Cardinals, while Herbert threw for three touchdowns himself in a win versus the Raiders. As this is a division rivalry, this game is that much more important to each team’s playoff run. The impressive offenses in this game, especially led by these quarterbacks, are going to make this a game that NFL fans will not want to miss.
