Los Angeles Chargers at Arizona Cardinals: Predictions, picks and odds for NFL Week 12 matchup

The Los Angeles Chargers (5-5) and Arizona Cardinals (4-7) meet in an interdivisional clash on Sunday night.

The Chargers showed glimpses of their full potential last week. Chargers receiver Keenan Allen made his return and took the offense to the next level. Despite a loss to the Kansas City Chiefs, the Chargers proved they are dangerous when healthy.

It might not be good news for the Cardinals. Arizona is still awaiting word on whether quarterback Kyler Murray can return to the lineup. If the Cardinals have any remaining playoff hopes, they cannot drop another game.

Both teams need a win and that makes for an intriguing matchup at State Farm Stadium.
