This season was part of a two-year span that finished in the same place it started: Denver. In 2017, it was the beginning of an 0-4 start; flash forward to 2018, the final game of the season, and the Bolts finish 12-4 headed to the Wild Card game.
This hidden storyline of the season underlines just how much the team has grown and improved since their Week 1 loss in 2017. The kicking game, which cost them a chance to win 32 regular season games ago, is stabilized. They’re more clutch in prime time. They won a playoff game. Fitting that the first loss from last year that contributed to them missing the postseason was their final win this year.
Those are, in my opinion, seven of the biggest stories surrounding the Chargers this year. It’s been a great year, even if we all leave disappointed fans. Here’s to a successful offseason, and the acquisition of enough talent to bring the Bolts to the Super Bowl.
