A look at the remaining twelve Charger games with insight and predictions based on the first four weeks of the 2011 season.
Match ups are a bit scary with Calvin Johnson and our diminutive secondary, but you have to like the Chargers passing offensive in order to help calm a disruptive defensive front.
Chargers 28 Lions 17
Aaron Rodgers is the lead candidate for MVP this year, too many weapons with Finley, Jennings, Jones…the list goes on. The defense has holes, but not going to win a shootout here.
Chargers 28 Packers42
The Bolts have suffered losses to the Ravens their previous 2. Who could forget Ray Lewis’s 4th down stop against Darren Sproles? The makeup of this year’s Ravens (more O, less D) plays more into the Chargers hands and home field should play a role in what looks like a Playoff preview match up in prime time Sunday Night.
Chargers 20 Ravens 14
Remaining "Toss Ups":
Going East never bolds well for San Diegan’s. They do have the bye week prior to this trip, but a variety of matchup concerns don’t bold well for the Chargers. Temperature, the ghost of Ladanian Tomlinson, and a desperate Jets team all play a part.
Chargers 17 Jets 30
The one division loss of this year comes during a letdown at Kansas City. Greatly undermanned, the Chiefs found a way to battle the Chargers in San Diego. They won’t let the Chargers out of K.C. unscathed. Look for a slug fest, ground and pound affair.
Chargers 27 Chiefs 28
Raiders (2)-Win, Win
Mcfadden breeds hope in all of Raider Nation, unfortunately for Oakland Campbell sucks all of that hope (excuse the pun) into his black hole of poor quarter backing. Stack the Box, throw against an Asomugha-less defense, come out with 2 Wins.
Chargers 42 Raiders 10; Chargers 24 Raiders 21
Fitzpatrick throws against this secondary, and surprise stud running back Fred Jackson has a field day to help keep the Bills alive in the AFC playoff hunt.
Charger 20 Bills 38
Remaining "Should Wins":
You knew it was coming. Devin Hester changes the outcome of yet another game, and Cutler finally gets the best of Rivers. I mean come on, he has to eventually? Forte is playing at an extremely high level and the conditions of Chicago play a role in this upset.
Chargers 28 Bears 31
Broncos (2)-Win, Win
Broncos just don’t have it in 2011. Von Miller will be scary for years, but where will any offense come from. I expect Brady Quinn or Mr. Tebow to see some action in these games, which can only benefit the Chargers Defense. Pray they win enough to avoid Andrew Luck.
Chargers 40 Broncos 20; Chargers 15 Broncos 9
Sunny east coast trip to Jacksonville should bode well, Gabbert makes some plays, but ability to stop run against Jones-Drew lets Chargers control game. Mercedes Lewis is the Target to watch.
Chargers 24 Jaguars 18
