Chargers’ opponents: Easiest, hardest game

Easiest Game: Week 2 at Detroit

The Lions may boast one of the weakest rosters the Chargers will face in 2018, though ask the New England Patriots how it feels to play them. Still, this should not be an incredibly difficult game for the Chargers, who will have a fresh team in just the second week of the regular season. There are no weapons on the Lions that would scare Chargers fans, and their defense is not as strong as it once was with Ndamukong Suh on the defensive line. This by no means is an “easy” game, but of the 16 scheduled, this one might be the easiest to predict as a win.

Hardest Game: Week 6 vs Pittsburgh

Normally, it’s the Chiefs. However, the Steelers will not only be looking to prove themselves following the departure of Antonio Brown and Le’Veon Bell, but also are hungry for revenge. Depending on who you ask, the Chargers either beat the Steelers because they choked or because the refs gave the game away, neither of which truly compliment how special of a comeback that was for the Bolts. Two classic AFC teams battle it out on Sunday Night again, with the Chargers sporting their new powder blue home jerseys. It’s going to be one heck of a game.
