Stop me if you’ve heard this before: the Los Angeles Chargers dropped another close game. The 26-24 loss to Philadelphia on Sunday moved the Chargers to 0-4.
It took me longer to write this than it usually does. This game just felt so typical. Close losses no longer phase me. Each week, the team plays tough but doesn’t quite execute enough to come out with the win. Each week it’s different. Week 1 was the offensive line, Week 2 was Younghoe Koo (who was just cut), week three was Philip Rivers and this week was the run defense. It feels a little redundant and, quite frankly, it’s hard to pick out winners in this kind of season.
With that being said, I only picked two winners and two losers, and my third “winner” and “loser” are more of an analysis of where the franchise as a whole is at this juncture in the season.
