The Los Angeles Chargers gained a little hype behind a near overtime victory for Justin Herbert over the Kansas City Chiefs, but any momentum manufactured from the quarterback change was quickly squashed after a loss to the Carolina Panthers. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers on the other hand have seen smooth sailing after their Week 1 loss, and now sit atop the NFC South at 2-1.

Now the two franchises meet in Tampa Bay, where LA hopes to even things up, let's see what the experts have to say about this matchup.
