Chargers’ opponents: Weeks 9-12
Week 9: Home vs Green Bay
Having not beaten the Packers since 1984, the Chargers may be in their best position to beat Green Bay in years. The Packers are currently not a very talented roster, but do have one of the most dangerous quarterbacks in football. Aaron Rodgers and his crew in a shootout against Philip Rivers and the Bolts is must-see T.V.
Week 10: At Oakland
The Raiders have been a push over as of late, losing to the Chargers four times over the last two seasons by a combined score of 42-93. However, this roster will boast many new faces on either side of the ball, including a familiar one in Tyrell Williams. This game will not be as “easy” for the Chargers as it was before, and it shouldn’t surprise fans for the Bolts to drop one here on the road.
Week 11: Home vs Kansas City (Mexico City, MNF)
This is one of those games where one would have to think still being in San Diego would make a huge difference here. A San Diego football team playing in Mexico City would produce a massive turnout. What kind of fans do they have out there now?
The Chargers may be fortunate to be playing on what should be a neutral field, as they have not won a game at home against the Chiefs since 2013, in which little to no starters were in the game to begin with. If the Chargers want to win the AFC, this game is a must-win.
Week 12: BYE
Late byes should favor the Chargers here, who will need time to recover following a trip to Mexico before three straight games against tough defenses in Denver, Jacksonville, and Minnesota. Here comes the playoff push.
