This Week 16 AFC West division game will be more about pride and the future than any 2020 results. Franchise quarterbacks Justin Herbert and Drew Lock (for now) face off for the second time, in a battle that the Denver Broncos won by a point the first time around.

Now the Los Angeles Chargers have the home advantage though, so let's see if that sways the experts in Broncos-Chargers round two.

Broncos vs Chargers Picks Week 16

CBS Sports picks are from their panel of experts, numberFire picks are from their NFL game projections, Sporting News picks are from Vinnie Iyer and betting favorites are from FanDuel Sportsbook's Week 16 NFL odds.

CBS Sports: Chargers (4), Broncos (1)
numberFire: Chargers
Sporting News: Chargers
Betting Favorite: Chargers -3

Against the Spread:
CBS Sports: Chargers (4), Broncos (1)
Sporting News: Chargers

Aside from CBS writer Dave Richard, every expert is taking the Chargers to right their wrongs and even the score with Denver. LAC has begun to finish more games down the stretch and the Broncos are banged up on defense, which led to five out of six spread picks for the Chargers as well.
