Recapping the NFL’s Offseason with PFT’s Charean Williams - Chris Hayre
On Chargers’ defense: “It’s going to be a fun defense unless you’re the opposing quarterback or the opposing offensive coordinator playing against them. They’re going to put a lot of pressure on the quarterback with Joey Bosa and Melvin Ingram and all those guys up front.”

'You play to win the game' - Daniel Kelley

Las Vegas places the Chargers as the division’s favorite, despite the franchise having failed to make the playoffs in each of the past four years and all but one season in the 2010s. They also have by far the weakest home-field advantage in football.
