Chargers’ opponents: Weeks 5-8

Week 5: Home vs Denver

The Chargers will be looking for revenge here, as the embarrassing finish to their past home game against the Denver Broncos inevitably kept the team out of the number one seed in the AFC. The Bolts tend to drop a game to the Broncos every year, but hopefully it won’t come at home this time.

Week 6: Home vs Pittsburgh (SNF)

The Chargers get another chance to play the Steelers on Sunday Night Football, this time scheduled ahead of time and also at home. Last year’s matchup was one of the best games of the season, and a true stepping stone for the coaching staff and team heading into the rest of the season. Without the confidence of that win, it’s possible they never beat the Chiefs just a few weeks later. Let’s see if the team can do it again against an Antonio Brown-less roster.

Week 7: At Tennessee

The Chargers will travel to Tennessee and still have a shorter flight than their most recent home game against the Titans, which was in London. It took an Adrian Phillips deflection on a controversial two-point attempt to beat this team last time.

Week 8: At Chicago

Every Chargers fan should look over the NFL schedule and figure out where the tough teams are, and at what time of year the Bolts are playing them. Chicago boasts one of the NFL’s best defenses, and will be a very tough outing for the team on the road. Fortunately, the Chargers get to play the Bears half way through the season, rather than late in the year when the field is frozen over.
