Week 16 vs. Denver Broncos: Win

Nearly two years after their last divisional win (which came against the Denver Broncos) the LA Chargers will finally snap the AFC West losing streak by beating the Broncos in the last home game of the year.

The Chargers should have won in Week 8 and were one Brandon Facyson pass interference call away from actually winning. Drew Lock and the Broncos have a terrible offense and I do not care who won the last game, you cannot tell me that the Broncos are more talented than the Chargers.

I have the Chargers getting their revenge in this game in a blowout. In fact, I think this will be the largest margin of victory that the Chargers have all season — it will be a 14+-point blowout.

Week 17 vs. Kansas City Chiefs: Loss

The Chargers end the season on the road against the Kansas City Chiefs and I hate to say that they will finish with an L. The hope is that the Chiefs will have nothing to play for in this game but with the Pittsburgh Steelers being undefeated and there only being one team with a bye week in the playoffs now I think the Chiefs will have something to play for in Week 17.

That will lead to a focused Chiefs team that has tape on Justin Herbert and knows exactly how to attack this terrible defense.

The Chargers’ only hope for this game is that the Chiefs have a two-game lead over the Steelers and a one-game lead over the Bills. If they have that then this game doesn’t matter and they can rest their starters.

Not like it will matter for the Chargers, anyway.

Final record prediction: 6-10

Is this bad enough to get Anthony Lynn fired? Yes. There is no reason that the LA Chargers should be 6-10 with the kind of season that Justin Herbert is primed to have.
