1. It’s a trap (game)!
The Los Angeles Chargers are on fire, and they get to play the Washington Redskins at home, followed by an important road division game against the Kansas City Chiefs.
Oh yeah, and they play the Browns before that too.
This is an ultimate trap game, and one that might have fans more worried than usual. It’s a game they absolutely should win, if not dominate.
The Chargers likely have more of their mind focused on big games against Washington and Kansas City (despite what they tell you), and could easily overlook the Browns. Any NFL team is incredibly talented, despite what their record says. The Arizona Cardinals just beat the Jacksonville Jaguars with Blaine Gabbert at quarterback last week. Anything is possible. The Bolts have to take care of business, but if they aren’t focused enough, the Browns could steal their first win of the season from them for the second year in a row.
Look, this game is more than likely to be a win. Even if the offense struggles, the defense is playing so well that it may dominate and win the game for the Chargers. Anthony Lynn also leads this group, and likely will get a big win that could have been a surprising loss (and has been before) under Mike McCoy. But, if any of those three reasons above happen, serious or not, then the Chargers could lose this.
Finally, I’d like to just say my love and thoughts are with Casey Hayward and his family. Losing a brother is terrible, especially so young, and we as a fanbase have your back. Go get an interception on Sunday for your bro.
