at Kansas City Chiefs (Thursday, Dec. 13)
The Chargers have historically not enjoyed trips to Kansas City for meetings with the Chiefs and it was pretty much to script last season when the Chiefs were far too good.
I’ve got a feeling we might head down the same path in 2018. By Week 15, Patrick Mahomes should have found himself behind center and built some identity and structure.
The Cheifsare too good at Arrowhead and the Chargers land on the ‘convoy’ record with a 10-4 big buddy!
vs Baltimore Ravens (Sunday, Dec. 23)
A little early Christmas present for the Chargers and their fans with a home game and the return of former franchise hero Eric Weddle for the first time since he left.

Rivers and Weddle will know each other in and out and that should set this one up for a ding-dong battle. I like the idea that the Chargers will turn their soccer stadium into an intimidating road trip with a plethora of wins, so I’ll stick with that narrative here. It’s also the last home game of the regular season, so a nice send-off would be the perfect result.
at Denver Broncos (Sunday, Dec. 30)
It has been a long time since the Chargers last won in Denver, but with a horror-season predicition on hand for the Broncos, I think this is the year they end the drought and snatch a win in the Mile High city.
Who knows what will be happening with the Broncos by the time this one rolls around, but hopefully the Chargers are fit and their key weapons are firing heading into the playoffs.
Final Record: 12-4.
