LA Chargers Season Preview

Today we go over the LA Chargers season preview. Not saying San Diego is going to take some getting use to. The Los Angeles Chargers finished the season with a 9-7 record last season. They missed out on the playoffs due to tiebreakers. This season, the team expects to be better than they were last season. The Chargers would love to make one more deep postseason run with their veteran quarterback. Rivers finally has some weapons to play with.

In this LA Chargers season preview you will find all you need to know. Before placing your bets on Philip Rivers and the Chargers pay attention.

After throwing a career-worst 21 interceptions in 2016, there were questions about Philip Rivers remaining the Chargers’ quarterback, but he quickly shut them down with a great 2017 campaign, almost leading the Chargers to the playoffs.

Rivers got some help on offense last season with Melvin Gordon playing like the first round pick the Chargers were expecting when they took him in 2015, and Keenan Allen, who was able to stay healthy last season.

With another year under their belts, Rivers and the offense should look much better than they were last season. The Chargers’ odds to win the Super Bowl is +3500.

Should Philip Rivers Retire?

Los Angeles’ offensive line, which did a great job last season, will be even better this year after the team landed former Miami Dolphins center, Mike Pouncey.

Defensively, the Chargers allowed 17 points per game last season, which was the third-best in the league. The Chargers will return most of their starters from last season, but they won’t have defensive end Chris McCain, who was picked up by the Indianapolis Colts during the offseason after the Chargers rescinded their Restricted Free Agent tender they had offered him. Philip Rivers has is work cut out for him.

Without McCain in the lineup, the Chargers will need someone to step up and fill the void left by the defensive end, who had 20 tackles, five sacks, and two forced fumbles last season.

If the defense plays as well as it did last year and the offense improves, the Chargers will be a legitimate threat to win the Super Bowl.
