The Los Angeles Chargers only have three games left in the regular season, leaving only three games to answer some pertinent questions.
The question of will they make the playoffs has been answered. They won’t. As a result, it’s now time for the team to focus on the next task at hand and that is preparing for next season any way they can.
Like all teams in the league, the Chargers will have several players becoming free agents, some of which are high-profile names.
The Chargers are coming off a huge blowout victory over the Jacksonville Jaguars in which Philip Rivers had a terrific performance on his birthday. But that victory should only provide a short-term feeling of excitement because the reality is that wins and losses over the next three games won’t be as important as seeing what role some of the players on the roster could have in the future.
The team’s next three games are against the Minnesota Vikings, Oakland Raiders and Kansas City Chiefs. The Chargers could play the role of spoiler against each of those teams as all three are battling for the playoffs, but what the team should be primarily focused on is what it might have for next season.
Because of that, there are some players that need to be on the field much more than they have been over the next three games. Here are three of those players.
