The Chargers are tied with the Carolina Panthers for the sixteenth hardest timetable next season dependent on their adversaries’ 2018 record.
They’ll have five games against 2018 playoff groups, a couple against the division-winning Chiefs, home games with the Houston Texans and Indianapolis Colts and an excursion to Chicago for a matchup with the Bears.
The AFC West’s regular adversaries are the AFC South and NFC North, which is about as Jekyll and Hyde as you can get. The AFC South is again a blend of a portion of football’s most fair groups, though the NFC North is filled start to finish with groups that could be playoff contenders.
Fortunately for the Chargers, by far most of their troublesome games are at home—however that doesn’t mean as much given their absence of home-field advantage. The Texans, Colts, Packers, Vikings and Steelers all make excursions to Los Angeles. Couple that with divisional rivals, and (in any event) seven of the eight home games the Chargers play this season will be against playoff-fighting groups.
Notwithstanding dealing with a 4-4 home record would be a solid result, particularly in light of the fact that the Chargers get an opportunity at coordinating their 7-1 street mark from a year prior. Outings to Chicago and Kansas City will be the main occasions L.A. ought to be a street hound this season.
It will be another abnormal home-street split for a group with the most peculiar arena circumstance in football.
The Chargers essentially need to win games they should. Clearing the Raiders and Broncos is a beginning, at that point moving through the failing Dolphins gets them to five successes.
Discovering five more over the timetable will be the contrast between the Chargers getting into the playoffs and being a failure. They ought to have the option to move beyond the Lions and Titans absent much issue, however both are saleable street games.
About each game the Chargers play at home will be essential. They will be reliably tried against great, well-trained groups, and they’re going to need to play well in close challenges. That is not generally been the quality of this Philip Rivers-drove pack.
So, the ability on this list is impressive. It would be an incredible dissatisfaction on the off chance that they were to by one way or another miss the playoffs.
A 10-6 record and a trump card compartment is a fair wagered.
