The LA Chargers schedule for the 2023 season has officially been released and as always, the team's social media team did an excellent job of putting together a viral release video that is going to get widespread attention. The Bolts went with an anime release video for the second year in a row.

While that is always fun, diehard fans are already diving into the Week 18 slate and looking at all the challenges and hurdles that the Bolts might have to endure. We already knew who the team was going to play but the exact order of these games certainly does matter. It can make a huge difference on the outcome of a season.

There is a lot to digest. As we do every year, let's dive into all 17 games for the Bolts and predict the team's final record for the 2023 season.

Predicting the outcome of every game on the Chargers schedule 2023:

Week 1 vs Miami Dolphins - WIN

Beating the Dolphins on Sunday Night Football was one of the best wins in 2022. There were some irresponsible narratives surrounding Justin Herbert heading into that matchup and he proved in that game that he is a legitimate elite quarterback. His opponent, meanwhile, did the opposite. 

While Miami was a hot team last season, it still feels like they lost some steam this offseason. The team did add Jalen Ramsey but there is still a massive question mark at the quarterback position with Tua Tagovailoa revealing that he contemplated retirement this offseason. 

Mike McDaniel and the Dolphins will adjust but Chargers fans should be confident in how Staley will gameplan against Tua.
