The Los Angeles Chargers are looking to get back on the winning path after two pathetic losses to the Denver Broncos and Pittsburgh Steelers.
Next up on the slate is a road trip to face the Tennessee Titans. At 2-4, the Titans are in the exact same boat as the Chargers and are coming off a shutout loss to the Broncos. The loser of this game will find it difficult to make the playoffs this season.
But in terms of talent, even with all of the injuries taken into consideration, the Chargers are the much more talented team, right?
Even if this game is being played in Nashville, that should not be something that intimidates the Chargers. It’s not as if the Titans have some sort of crazy home-field advantage. Since moving to Nashville from Houston, the Titans have dropped three of the four games they have played against the Chargers in Tennessee. On top of that, the Titans are 0-2 at home this season.
For the Chargers to win this game, they will need to get back to what was working in wins over the Indianapolis Colts and Miami Dolphins. They will also need to figure out how to game plan against this Titans defense with the offensive line in its current state, which is far from ideal.
This is not a guaranteed win (in the NFL, nothing is). But the Chargers should win this game. Of course, the same was said of last week’s game vs. Devlin Hodges and the Steelers. If the Chargers do these three things, they will improve their record to 3-4.
