Good morning, Chargers fans!
In case you haven’t heard just yet...THE BOLTS ARE IN THE PLAYOFFS!
With a 20-3 win over the Colts on Monday Night Football, the Chargers punched their ticket to the postseason for the first time since the 2018 season. They’re likely headed for the No. 5 or No. 6 seed and that means potential matchups with the Bengals or Jaguars/Titans.
As it stands, Justin Herbert now has a winning record in his career (24-23) and is headed to the postseason for the first time, as well.
What a remarkable job by everyone around.
As always, feel free to continue the conversation from last night in the comments below!
