The LA Chargers are tied for first place in the AFC West.

The LA Chargers began their 2020 season exactly how they drew it up — with a win over Joe Burrow and the Cincinnati Bengals. Granted, they got some luck from a Randy Bullock missed chip shot, but Charger fans have endured the other side of that spectrum so much that we will take whatever we can get.

Week 1’s slate of games officially wrapped up on Monday night after ESPN’s Week 1 doubleheader. With the week officially under wraps, we can start our new, ongoing series, recapping all four teams in the AFC West.

The AFC West had games range from Thursday Night Football to Monday Night Football and there is quite a bit to go over. It is more than just winning or losing and the X’s and O’s as Week 1 gave us out first real preview into how the division may shakeup.

Thus, we will be going game-by-game in the AFC West, looking at some important stats/trends that are revealing and by the end of it, we should get an idea of how the Bolts stack up against their division foes after a week of football.

Let’s get into it, starting with the defending Super Bowl Champion Kansas City Chiefs, who welcomed the NFL back on Thursday against the Houston Texans.
