Currently, on the bye week, the Chargers are 4-2.
Upon returning next weekend, Los Angeles is set to have a favorable schedule, which should help as they look to maintain superiority in the AFC West.
According to Tankathon, the Chargers have the fifth-easiest schedule remaining in the NFL. Only the Jets, Eagles, Titans, and Bills have a more manageable schedule remaining.
The Bolts’ remaining opponents have a combined winning percentage of .427. The Chargers’ two losses came from games against Dallas and Baltimore, two playoff contenders.
The most recent loss to the Ravens exposed a significant need for improvement against the run. The team is allowing 162.5 rushing yards per game, which is the worst in the NFL.
Furthermore, the early-down playcalling and special teams areas that Los Angeles needs to shore up.
If the Bolts can make the changes and you couple that with how advantageous the remaining schedule is, the team has a great shot at winning the division and locking up one of the top spots for the playoffs.
