The LA Chargers defeating the New York Jets is far from a guarantee in Week 11.
The LA Chargers have the easiest game of the season ahead of them in Week 11 but it does not really even mean much. The team is 2-7 on the season and the focus now is on the upcoming offseason and Justin Herbert‘s haircut more than it is on making any sort of run this season.
Week 11 is more about pride than anything for the Bolts. They take on the 0-9 New York Jets, who are one of the least-talented and worst-coached teams that I have seen in quite some time. The Hugh Jackson Browns were really bad, the Adam Gase Jets might be even worse.
This is an automatic W for most teams but for the Chargers it is scary. The Bolts find new ways to lose games every single week and this Sunday may be no different. As easy as this matchup is on paper, I would not rule out the possibility of the Chargers dropping to 2-8 on the season.
It is more likely that they win but here are three reasons why I would not be shocked if the New York Jets won in Week 11.
1. History repeats itself
This reason is more trivial than anything, that is why it is the first reason and we are not going to go too far in-depth on it.
However, the fact of the matter is that history does repeat itself. The LA Chargers, for years, have lost heartbreaking game after heartbreaking game. That has been true no matter who the head coach is and who the quarterback is.
You always may remember an ugly game from four years ago. The Chargers took on the 0-14 Cleveland Browns. Easy win, right? The Bolts dropped the game, 20-17.
Going 0-16 is really rare and history indicates that the Jets will likely steal one game this season. The Chargers are the easiest game left on their schedule and they are hungry to not go winless. It is a scary thought.
