The San Diego Chargers have had a difficult year in terms of unbelievable, last-minute losses that have left fans shaking their heads and not knowing what to think. With six losses on their record, the margin for error following the bye week will be very slim.

Already, the talk has shifted to the topics of conversation of the offseason. Free agency. The NFL draft. The possible move to Los Angeles. These are topics for another day, particularly since there are still six games to play this season.

But before we look toward the rest of the schedule, we’re going to look back at the games that have already been played. For most Chargers fans, that won’t bring a smile, especially when you think about where the Chargers could be if they just managed to pull one or two of these games out.

Today, I’m going to take a look back at each of the team’s six losses so far this season, and rank them in order of how crippling they were to the team and its goals for the year.

Whether it be poor clock management, a turnover at the worst possible time or a botched field goal, the Chargers have lost in almost every conceivable way this season. Here’s a look back.
