Bold: Games to Talk About Underline: Could go any way

Well, Oops. That’s better. The Chargers lost some key players during the offense. It sounds like they might lose Vincent Jackson (WR) and they already lost Ladanian Tomlinson (RB) to the New York Jets. I think that the Chargers are going to go 11-5, and Philip Rivers is going to need to work really hard.

The two games that I bolded are against the Bengals and Patriots. (Notice that the Bengals are appearing in a lot of schedules… Bolded?) The Bengals game is going to be tough for the Chargers. The Sandiego offense is not looking good to me against the Bengals Defense, which I think has a lot of potential this year and upcoming years. They might not be the best D in the league, but, they could easily be. That one, I think will end up to be 31-24 Bengals.

The other game, against the Patriots, will be interesting. I think that both the Pats and the Chargers are an OK offense with a not-so-popular-but-OK D. The only thing is, I think that the Patriots have a better Offense. Yet, I think that the Chargers have a better Defense. The score of that one is going to be 35-31, Patriots.

So, in the end, the Chargers are going to be 11-5, in my opion of course. I don’t think they will be any worse than 10-6, but no better than 12-4. I think that they are going to get 1st in their division, that would automatically put them in the playoffs. This is what I think the AFC West (Chargers’ Division) is going to look like at the end of the season…

  1. San Diego Chargers
  2. Denver Broncos
  3. Kansas City Chiefs
  4. Oakland Raiders

Now, that is with-out looking at the Broncos, Chiefs, and Raiders schedules. That might change after I look at the Schedules. But, I don’t think so. The only change might be the Broncos going up to 1st and the Chargers to 2nd. There is a small chance that will happen though. Well, here is my summery:

  • Record: 11-5
  • Critical Games: Weeks 7-10, 14-17.
  • Key Players: Philip Rivers, Vincent Jackson (if he comes back), Ryan Matthews (RB)
