The LA Chargers battled and had a lead late in the fourth quarter but at the end of the day, the team's ugly second half against the Kansas City Chiefs came back to bite. The Chargers fell 30-27 to the Chiefs on Sunday Night Football, moving to 5-5 on the season.

A win over the Chiefs would have been massive as a 6-4 record would have put the team in a great spot to make the playoffs this season. Now, at 5-5, the Chargers are going to have to string together an impressive run after Thanksgiving if they want their first playoff appearance since 2018.

A lot of Chargers fans have seemingly lost hope of the playoffs even being in the equation this season. But that might not be the case. Let's go through each remaining Chargers game to see where the team will ultimately end up.

Predicting every Chargers game after disappointing Chiefs loss:

Week 12 at Arizona Cardinals: 31-20, WIN

The Arizona Cardinals are having an even more disappointing season than the Chargers and did not project to be as tough of a matchup as they were before the season. That matchup is even easier for the Bolts as the team is likely going to be without Kyler Murray.

No Murray in this game should all but seal the deal for a Chargers win. Of course, Chargers fans have learned not to expect any kind of outcome when it comes to the Chargers but it would be very surprising to see Colt McCoy beat the Chargers with how bad the Arizona defense is.

Week 13 at Las Vegas Raiders: 24-23, WIN

The LA Chargers beat the Las Vegas Raiders in Week 1 and while the Raiders are essentially out of the playoff picture, they are going to have plenty of motivation to get revenge on the Chargers in this game and potentially end the Bolts' playoff hopes.

The Chargers defense is downright bad and I would expect Davante Adams to have another field day against this team. Josh Jacobs has really come into his own as a rusher and will likely be leaned on more than he was in the first matchup.

This will result in the Raiders owning the time of possession advantage and will put the Chargers in a position where they have to drive down the field at the end of the game to secure the win. With the playoffs on the line, the Chargers get it done.
