Week 16 at Indianapolis Colts: 28-16 WIN

This should be a two-possession win for the LA Chargers, especially if we are assuming the team takes care of business against the Titans the week prior. The Indianapolis Colts are one of the worst, if not the worst, teams in the entire league and will be playing for draft position by the time this game rolls around.

Indy is essentially a much worse version of the Titans, giving the Chargers a great warm-up to make sure they don't fall into the trap in this game. Jonathan Taylor has not been as explosive this season and is essentially a slightly-less-scary version of Derrick Henry.

Meanwhile, Matt Ryan is not nearly as good as Ryan Tannehill and the Colts somehow have even worse weapons than the Titans have. Defensively, the Colts have some playmakers but the good offenses in the league have mostly been able to move the ball against them.

There is also the coaching dynamics of this game. Brandon Staley has been outcoached by high-level coaches in the past and it has been ugly to watch. Jeff Saturday is not a high-level coach and the Bolts should be the ones with the big coaching advantage in this one.

Losing to the Titans would at least be understandable. If the Chargers lose to the Colts then they do not deserve to be a playoff team anyway.
