At 7-1 in 2018, the Chargers tied the New Orleans Saints with the best road record in the NFL. In fact, the only Chargers' regular-season road loss was a game at the crosstown Los Angeles Rams. Since 2017 started, Lynn has compiled an 11-5 record on the road in the regular season. Only the Rams (13-3) and Pittsburgh Steelers (11-4-1) have a better record during that stretch.
