3. The Chargers' upcoming schedule is a cakewalk
We could have talked about Justin Herbert being an alien here but that is already a given and we knew that heading into the season. In fact, there is probably more concern around Herbert right now with his rib injury and how it might impact his play this season.
Instead, Chargers fans should erase the loss from their memories and look ahead at the next slate of games. The Chargers are entering the easiest stretch of the season and there is a legitimate chance the team could be as good as 7-1.
Knowing the NFL, the Chargers likely won't rip off a six-game win streak as winning that many games in a row is a really hard thing to do. But the Chargers are certainly good enough where that is in the realm of possibility with their next six opponents.
The Chargers have back-to-back home AFC South opponents in the Jacksonville Jaguars and Houston Texans. Last year's Texans game was a reminder that anything can happen in any game but this year is different and the Bolts should win that game.
LA then hits the road for a game against the Cleveland Browns. While Jacoby Brissett is not a good quarterback, the Browns do have a talented team. The Chargers should be able to get it done though.
Hosting Denver on Monday Night Football is a tough challenge and is the hardest game for the Bolts in this stretch. After this, the Chargers play both the Seahawks and Falcons. LA is going to likely be a touchdown or more favorites in at least four of the team's next six games.
Four wins feel like the absolute minimum for the Bolts in this stretch. If the Chargers are as good as we think they are, the team should at least be 6-2 after this stretch of games.
