Continuing with the season predictions I started for the Los Angeles Chargers, the focus shifts to a four-week stretch that could prove to be quite fruitful for the team.

The month of October is one that the Chargers should look forward to as it features two home games and the bye week. Should the Bolts get through this stretch with some wins, the team will be set up for a big second half of the season.

As seen in my predictions for the first four weeks of the season, the team is sitting at 3-1 come Week 5, with a loss to the loaded Los Angeles Rams the only blemish on the record.

Looking at the next four weeks, the Chargers have the Oakland Raiders, Cleveland Browns and Tennessee Titans on the docket. The Raiders are obviously a division rival, and the Browns and Titans are both becoming teams the Chargers have built rivalries with in recent years.

Most Chargers fans are reading all of that thinking, “we’ll win all of those games easily.” Will that be the case? That’s what I’m going to look into here.

After predicting that the Bolts get off to a tremendous start, close to the exact opposite as last year, can the team keep it up?

New (and returning) head coaches and young, confident quarterbacks await the Chargers in the second month of the season. Let’s see how the team tackles each of these unique challenges.

Could the Bolts reach 7-1? If they do, they’d be among the frontrunners in the AFC.
