LA Chargers Week 9-13:

Week 9 vs. Raiders

I have the Raiders at 1-6 coming into this game. This is going to be a real test for them to try and stop another high-powered offense that Justin Herbert and the Chargers could have by then. On the defensive side, the Bolts present a lot of problems for Derek Carr.

LA Chargers record: 5-4

Week 10 BYE

Week 11 at Broncos

The Chargers have won four games in their last 18 matchups with the Broncos. Denver was always a team that gave Philip Rivers problems. I don’t see that going away any time soon, especially against a rookie quarterback in Herbert at Mile High.

LA Chargers record: 5-5

Week 12 at Bills

The Chargers actually have pretty good numbers against the Bills. They lead the all-time series 25-12-2 and have won six of their last seven matchups with the Bills. However, this is a different kind of Bills team with a lot of versatility at the quarterback position and a very strong defense to support that. This is going to be a tough game for either Tyrod Taylor (who’s never faced the Bills) or a rookie quarterback to face.

LA Chargers record: 5-6

Week 13 vs. Patriots

Another tough matchup for the Bolts. The Patriots have won their last 18 of 21 games against the Chargers and for whatever it’s worth, Tyrod Taylor is 1-6 against the Pats. This team never beats the Patriots.

LA Chargers record: 5-7
