LA Chargers Week 5-8:

Week 5 at Saints

Another tough game for the Bolts to win at Drew Brees and the Saints. They’ve lost four of their last five games against the Saints and Brees is 3-0 against his former team.

LA Chargers record: 2-3

Week 6 vs. Jets

Now I think we could see Justin Herbert come in to face a down-ish slate of defenses the next several weeks. Although Tyrod is 5-2 versus the Jets in his career, this seems like a really good spot for a young Herbert to come in at home and put on a strong performance. Sam Darnold in his home state is something to keep an eye on, but I think the Bolts can take this one.

LA Chargers record: 3-3

Week 7 at Dolphins

With the exception of last year’s game in Miami, the Chargers’ last time they won in Miami was in 1982. The Fins always give the Chargers a rough time.

LA Chargers record: 3-4

Week 8 vs. Jaguars

I thought the Jags were a team that usually gave the Bolts a lot of trouble, but the Chargers have actually won seven of their last eight games against the Jaguars. Tougher defense for Justin Herbert to face with two legit corner I really like in CJ Henderson and Tre Herndon, but I think his own defense will come through for him.

LA Chargers record: 4-4
