The Buffalo Bills (7-3) return from their bye week poised for another high-octane shootout when they host the Los Angeles Chargers (3-7) on Sunday, and on the latest episode of the Billieve Podcast, hosts John Boccacino and Jamie D’Amico have everything you need to know for the Week 12 clash.

After wishing everyone in #BillsMafia a belated happy Thanksgiving and reminiscing about last year’s satisfying win for the Bills over the Dallas Cowboys, our podcasters turned their attention to the Chargers matchup, featuring a pair of quarterbacks taken in the top 10 of their NFL Draft class (Josh Allen No. 7 overall in 2018 and Justin Herbert No. 6 overall in 2020).

Among the topics discussed on the podcast:

  • What should Bills fans make of the Chargers’ inability to close out games?
  • Will Allen and the passing attack be able to take advantage of the Chargers’ vulnerabilities in the secondary?
  • Why Stefon Diggs and Cole Beasley are poised for another big day.
  • With wide receiver John Brown ruled out for the game, there is an opportunity for rookie wide receiver Gabriel Davis to shine.
  • Rookie quarterback Justin Herbert sure hasn’t played like a rookie thus far, completing nearly 70 percent of his passes for 2,700 yards with 22 TDs and only six interceptions.
  • What are the keys for the Bills’ defense to confuse Herbert and make him play like a rookie?
  • Why Ed Oliver and Quinton Jefferson need to cause chaos with their presence on the front four, and how they have winnable matchups vs. an under-performing Chargers’ offensive line.
  • Did Buffalo do enough during the bye week to improve both its rushing attack and its rushing defense?
  • What is the future of center Mitch Morse, and what could a new-look offensive line resemble with guard Cody Ford sidelined for the rest of the year?
  • Plenty of points should be scored in this one.
