The last five weeks of the season will likely be the most difficult for the Los Angeles Chargers and how the team performs during that stretch to be the difference between a division title and wild card or a Wild Card and missing the playoffs completely.
Through the first 12 weeks of the season, the Chargers sit at 9-2, according to my predictions. That includes an undefeated month of November.
That would likely put them in the driver’s seat in the AFC West and could put them in contention for a first-round playoff bye or even home-field advantage in the AFC.
But this will be a tough five-game stretch which features three games on the road, two of which will be played within the division.
The Chargers collapsed in Arrowhead Stadium last December and they will have to make that trip again this year for what could be a crucial game.
Let’s jump into the picks and see how the Chargers will close this season.
