12. Los Angeles Chargers (1-1)
The Los Angeles Chargers could very well be 0-2 if not for a few breaks in Week 1, but that doesn’t soften the blow of a Week 2 loss to the Detroit Lions in which the Chargers offense wasn’t able to put points on the board.
Despite putting up 424 yards of total offense, the Chargers only scored 10 points in the losing effort and Philip Rivers failed to throw a single touchdown pass. After surrendering a 10-6 lead that they had for much of the contest late in the fourth quarter, Rivers and Co. still had an opportunity to win the game.
With the Chargers driving, Rivers tossed an interception on a pass intended for Keenan Allen that iced a game in which LA was expected to win. To say the Chargers have been playing down to their competition to start the season would be an understatement, or maybe they’re just not as good as we thought.
A Week 3 home game against the Houston Texans awaits the Chargers. Anthony Lynn’s squad must step it up in a big way if they’re going to fulfill the big expectations bestowed upon them prior to the 2019 season.
