The Cincinnati Bengals prepare to play the Los Angeles Chargers in a crucial battle in the AFC playoff race. In one of the biggest games of the year, the stripes will play the Bolts in a game that will give the winner an upper hand in the playoff race.

Here are six bold predictions for the game in what should be a fun one.

Bold Predictions for Bengals Offense

Joe Mixon rushes for over 100 yards for the third straight game

Last week, Joe Mixon was the workhorse that led the Bengals in their historic route against the Steelers. Against one of the worst run defenses in the league, his stats are only going to get better. This week, Mixon may not get as many touches, but he will take full advantage of them by rushing for over 100 yards.

Ja’Marr Chase is going to gain over 100 receiving yards

Ja’Marr Chase has cooled off a little since he was the runaway favorite for Rookie of the Year. He has less than 50 receiving yards in his last four games, and it just feels like he is going to break out soon. In a game where scoring could be plentiful, Chase should have plenty of chances to get in the endzone.

Breaking the slump, Chase has a big game to help propel the Cincinnati Bengals to victory.
