The Chargers will travel to Washington to face the Redskins on Sunday. San Diego is coming off a bye and is currently 4-3, and Washington has staggered to a 2-5 start to the season. The Redskins have struggled on both sides of the ball and need to improve if they hope to contend for the NFC East division title. San Diego's defense needs to improve to the level of its offense, as Philip Rivers has undergone a career resurgence under new head coach Mike McCoy.
Despite the disparity in their records, the Redskins are the 0.5-point favorites at home against the Chargers. Still, everyone on the CBS Sports eight-man panel believes San Diego will beat Washington, with or without the spread. The Yahoo! Spots two-man crew is split with a 1-1 vote in this matchup.
The SB Nation six-man panel is also split on the outcome of this contest, but favors the Chargers with a 4-2 vote.
