The Buffalo Bills (8-6) will face off against the Los Angeles Chargers (5-9) on Saturday Night in Week 16 at SoFi Stadium.

The Las Angeles Chargers suffered a 63-21 loss to the Las Vegas Raiders during Week 15 Thursday Night Football. Easton Stick made his debut as the Chargers quarterback, completing 23 out of 32 passes for 257 yards, with three touchdowns and one interception against the Raiders. The Chargers will be without their starting quarterback, Justin Herbert, who broke his right index finger during the Broncos game in Week 14, ending his season early.

The Buffalo Bills had a remarkable 31-10 victory over the Dallas Cowboys during Week 15. The star performer of the game was running back James Cook, who achieved his career-best performance by recording 179 rushing yards on 25 carries and scoring one touchdown. However, the Bills may face a challenge in their upcoming game against the Chargers, as two key players, defensive end AJ Epenesa and safety Micah Hyde, may not be available due to injury.
