PODCAST: An early must win game for the Los Angeles Chargers

I am concerned for the Los Angeles Chargers’ playoff hopes. Surprise, surprise.

With the Kansas City Chiefs as the only thing standing in between the Chargers being 0-3 with an 0-2 record against an AFC West that looks very strong, I’m already concerned about this season spinning out of control.

With a tough upcoming schedule, the Chargers could find themselves 0-8 or 1-7 a few weeks from now, which is not the start that anyone envisioned for the Anthony Lynn era.

But, back to Sunday’s game. The Chiefs have what could be the perfect offense to go up against this L.A. defense, and their defense seems very well suited to slow down the pass-heavy Chargers offense (that might be without Melvin Gordon).

This could be terrible.

Thanks for listening!
