Here for the Paycheck: The rest of the 2015 Chargers schedule

What's left for the San Diego Chargers this season? Plenty of games, but not much importance.

Matt Cashore-USA TODAY Sports

The San Diego Chargers are 2-7. They are currently 14th in the 16-team AFC. They have no chance at the NFL Playoffs and anyone who tells you they do is lying.

So, what can we expect from the final 7 games of the 2015 NFL season? Let's go game-by-game.

11/22 - Kansas City Chiefs

The Chiefs are not a very good team, but they're a good deal better than the Chargers. This game will be a stiff reminder of just how insane it is that the Chargers and their Hall of Fame QB and Hall of Fame TE can't keep up with Alex Smith and whoever else is on the Chiefs.

11/29 - at Jacksonville Jaguars

The Jaguars are one miracle away from being 2-7. However, they're at home for this one, so I think there's a 50/50 chance they walk away with the win and the Chargers losing streak grows to 7 games.

12/6 - Denver Broncos

Say what you want about Brock Osweiler, the Broncos are a good team. However, the kid is due for at least one bad game along the way and this may be it. Another 50/50 game for the Chargers, unless Peyton Manning is somehow healthy by then.

12/13 - at Kansas City Chiefs

At Arrowhead? Against a team fighting for a playoff spot? The Chargers should probably just sit the players they care about being on the roster next year. They won't stand a chance here.

12/20 - Miami Dolphins

The Dolphins are not a good team. They're incredible erratic. At home, the Chargers could probably beat them. The Chargers certainly have more talent than them. So, another 50/50 game?

12/24 - at Oakland Raiders

The northern version of "The Carson Game". Like the Chiefs and the Dolphins, the Raiders are currently 4-5 and in the playoff hunt. However, the way they dominated the Chargers in San Diego makes me think McCoy's boys don't stand a chance here.

1/3 - at Denver Broncos

The dreaded "What do we do?" game. Does McCoy play any of his starters? Why? What's the point?

This game has some potential to be fun, but only because it may look more like a preseason game than actual NFL football.
