Week 14 vs. Atlanta Falcons: Win

This should be the game of the season. In this game, you have two teams who have had poor defensive showing this year that also invent new ways to lose games every single week. It is going to be a lose-off with the worse loser being the winner.

Are you following?

For my South Park fans out there, this game reminds me of the episode titled The Losing Edge in which the South Park kids are making a deep run in Little League where they are worse at losing than the other team. The team wants to lose so they can have fun over the summer.

That is how it feels watching the Chargers sometimes.

In all honesty, the Chargers are the home team in this one and I do think they are more naturally talented than Atlanta. Anthony Lynn is going to be coaching for his job and I think his side gets it done.

Week 15 vs. Las Vegas Raiders: Loss

I’m sorry, I really am. I know that Charger fans don’t want to see yet another division loss but I just do not see the Chargers winning this game against the Raiders even with how close the first game was.

The Raiders are going to be vying for a spot in the NFL Playoffs at this point in the season while the Chargers will just be trying to play spoiler. While it will naturally be another close game, I think Jon Gruden’s team gets it done at home to extend their winning streak over the Chargers to four games.

Record after 14 games: 5-9
