This bold prediction is short, please reply with your prediction in comments. If the Los Angeles Chargers lose to the mighty Los Angeles Rams…
The difference between winning and losing is often as thin as an eyelash. So you can’t blink. The Bolts’ younger players, feeling pressure in the following four games, will flinch, try too hard, try to win games on their own, and lose focus the way they did in the second half against the Buffalo Bills in Week 2.
"In that case, the Chargers will then lose two games of the following four:"
San Francisco 49ers (1-1) and/or Oakland Raiders,(0-2), Cleveland Browns (1-1 like the Bolts) and their stiffest challenge will be Tennessee Titans (1-1).
In that case the Bolts blub-blub-blub into their bye week with a record of 3-4.
"If the Chargers win… they will run the table to the bye week, trampling the next four opponents:"
San Francisco 49ers, Oakland Raiders, Cleveland Browns, Tennessee Titans.
And thus the Bolts would blast into their bye week at 6-1.
