Instead, tiebreaker rules allowed the Buffalo Bills and Tennessee Titans to sneak in. But coming that close after starting 0-4 has the Chargers excited about 2018, if not determined.
Adding free agent Mike Pouncey to the offensive line and rookie Derwin James to the defensive backfield addresses the only weak spots displayed during the Chargers 9-3 stretch. Philip Rivers is among those who expect great things from the Chargers in 2018.
This is how we see the Los Angeles Chargers ’ 2018 season unfolding, game-by-game:
Week 1: Chiefs (0-0) at Chargers (0-0)
Kansas City let Alex Smith go and handed the reins to Pat Mahomes, a second year, strong-armed thrower. With the talent pool around him, Mahomes is set up for a good debut.
Philip Rivers wants to put the Chiefs on notice that the AFC West title is not a lock this season. Kansas City throws their entire offensive repertoire at the Chargers, but Rivers has just as many viable options at his disposal, too. The Chargers capture the most entertaining opening day game of the season. (Chargers 28-25)
Week 2: Chargers (1-0) at the Bills (0-1)
Buffalo’s reward for sneaking into the playoffs last season was a brutal opening schedule in 2018. The Chargers defense starts correcting the stats they incurred against the Chiefs by taking it to the Bills’ shaky offensive line and inexperienced quarterback.
Meanwhile, Melvin Gordon prompts memories of when LeSean McCoy had an offensive line in Buffalo. Rivers has a lower passer rating after two games than he did last season, but he already has two more wins. (Chargers 28-3)
Week 3: Chargers (2-0) at Rams (1-1)
Jared Goff and the Rams bounced back from an opening season upset at the hands of the Raiders to secure a comfortable home win against the Cardinals.
Goff and Todd Gurley match Rivers and Gordon pass-for-pass and run-for-run. Both defenses have their moments, but the home offense ekes out a win against the Chargers. (Rams 27-24)
Week 4: 49ers (2-1) at Chargers (2-1)
San Francisco’s Jimmy Garoppolo had his winning streak snapped on opening day, but he has strung together two more wins since then. San Francisco believes they have the personnel and the schedule to make a run at a division title.
This isn’t part of the schedule that has them optimistic. The Chargersoffense can’t be stopped. They send their upstart guests home with their second loss of the season. (Chargers 27-24)
Week 5: Raiders (2-2) at Chargers (3-1)
After an opening day upset against the Rams, Oakland struggles to keep up with John Gruden’s schemes and adjustments.
The Chargers,on the other hand, are clicking on all cylinders. They make short work of the Raiders in a game not as close as the score indicates. (Chargers 24-13)
Week 6: Chargers (4-1) at Browns (2-3)
Cleveland already has two wins under their belt this season against the Jets and Ravens. Tyrod Taylor has solved the great quarterback quandary in Cleveland and their other veteran acquisitions have the Browns’ young stars playing with direction.
Los Angeles is a better team than either the Jets or Ravens and they are certainly better than the Browns. But on this day, they come out flat and lay an egg against a determined foe. (Browns 20-14)
Week 7: Titans (3-3) at Chargers (4-2)
Tennessee and Los Angeles travel to London for their Week 7 tilt. Neither team has much experience playing across the pond, but at least LA knows what it’s like to cross the country.
Philip Rivers gets the Chargers back on track in England with a nondescript win over the Titans. (Chargers 24-12)
Week 8: The Chargers are on their bye week.
Week 9: Chargers (5-2) at Seahawks (3-4)
Nothing is the same in Seattle. After a number of high profile players left in the offseason, the normal excitement is lacking. A banner in the crowd says, “how ‘bout if we’re just the 11-and-a-half man?”
Russell Wilson tries to will the Seahawks along, but he watches enviously as Rivers directs his array of weapons down the field. It’s a tough year to be a Seahawks fan. (Chargers 28-20)
Week 10: Chargers (6-2) at Raiders (4-4)
Oakland has won two of three since falling to the Chargers in Week 6. Fans aren’t dreaming of a Super Bowl run just yet, but it’s a start.
Rivers and the offense don’t have a terrible game, but the Chargers defense gives up too many big plays to Oakland in a surprising loss. (Raiders 25-21)
Week 11: Broncos (4-5) at Chargers (6-3)
Denver is treading water without a running game and issues in pass protection. Their defense is keeping them in games, but discontent is brewing in the locker room.
Rivers and Gordon have a tougher day than usual, but the Chargers’ defense doesn’t let the Broncos take advantage of it. (Chargers 17-14)
Week 12: Cardinals (3-7) at Chargers (7-3)
When the Cardinals signed Sam Bradford with multiple younger and less-fragile options still available, it raised eyebrows. When they drafted Josh Rosen, it made sense. Bradford continues to chew Rosen’s ear. While the results are slow in coming, Arizona’s quarterback is getting better each week.
For now, the Cardinals are no match for the Chargers. The running game takes over in an effort to end the bloodshed quickly. (Chargers 27-10)
Week 13: Chargers (8-3) at Steelers (6-5)
Pittsburgh is not winning the close games they won last year. As a result, they are struggling to stay ahead of the Ravens in the AFC North.
Rivers wants to keep the Chiefs, winners of four in a row, at a distance. Roethlisberger and Le’Veon Bell push the issue, but in the end, a Melvin Gordon touchdown dive drops the Steeler to 6-6. (Chargers 27-24)
Week 14: Bengals (2-10) at Chargers (9-3)
Cincinnati has won two straight after dropping their first ten. Chargers coach, Anthony Lynn, shows the game film from Los Angeles’ Week 6 loss in Cleveland.
The team gets the message, and the Bengals get treated rough. (Chargers 27-16)
Week 15: Chargers (10-3) at Chiefs (8-5)
Philip Rivers is excited at the notion of clinching the AFC West title in front of a national television audience. But on a short week, the Chiefs’ defense is better prepared than the Chargers’ offense.
LA’s defense puts forth a great effort, too, but Andy Reid squeezes just enough from his troops to stave off elimination for another week. (Chiefs 20-16)
Week 16: Ravens (7-7) at Chargers (10-4)
Baltimore heads to Los Angeles in desperate shape. They need to win out to have any chance at catching the Pittsburgh Steelers for a division title.
The Chargers are in no mood to help them as they want to clinch their own division today, too. Both defenses set a rough tone, but the Chargers’ offense has more answers. (Chargers 20-17)
Week 17: Chargers (11-4) at Broncos (5-10)
All the Chargers have to do to clinch the AFC West title is hand the reeling Broncos their sixth consecutive defeat. They hope to have the game in hand by halftime to rest some players.
Denver’s locker room gets wind of that idea and treats their home crowd to an energetic and emotional rout of the visitors. The Chargers are left to sweat out the results of Kansas City’s final game to know if they are division champs or not.
AF West More Preview
What happens next?
Shortly after the game comes word that the Chiefs lost to the Raiders. It is a bittersweet result for Rivers who envisioned walking off the field with his division championship cap and tee shirt.
The New York Jets’ upset of the Patriots gives the Chargers a first-round bye. Rivers enters the playoff fray well rested and in front of a home crowd.
