The LA Chargers have one of the best quarterbacks in the entire NFL in Justin Herbert and in just about every single game they are going to have the advantage at the position. That is why the Chargers have a legitimate Super Bowl window that they are looking to capitalize on.
Los Angeles does play some solid quarterbacks on the 2022 slate, though. It definitely is not as tough quarterbacks-wise as the previous two years, but there are some guys that will put up great numbers next season.
Excluded from this list is Deshaun Watson as we do not know the status of his availability and whether or not the league will suspend him or for how long.
Here are the five best quarterbacks the LA Chargers will face in 2022:
5. Derek Carr
Look, I know it is sacrilegious to say here on a Chargers site but I do think Derek Carr is one of the more underrated quarterbacks in the league. That being said, he is still around the 13th-best quarterback in the league and the fact that he is one of the best the Chargers face is a good thing.
Carr is as good as the weapons are around him and luckily for the Raiders he has some of the best weapons in the entire NFL. There is no reason for Carr to be bad and when the 2022 season is over I am sure that he is going to have a solid statistical season.
That being said, he still is not the guy you really want with the game on the line in the final two minutes of a game. He has made some plays before, of course, but there are at least 10 other quarterbacks who you would feel more comfortable with in a big spot with the game on the line.
