The San Diego chargers have changed coaches, and general manager in this last year. They have added a veteran corner and have added an electric running back in Danny Woodhead. The chargers have added great prices to the team in this years draft with linebacker Man’ti Teo and wide receiver Keenan Allen. They have also let go of players that were holding the team back like Antoine Cason and Quentin Jammer. They have however lost a couple of key players such as Shaun Phillips.
Can the Chargers make it to the playoffs? They would have to defeat the broncos in order to get in first. The schedule is favorable for the chargers, as they will only face 6 teams that went to the playoffs. Out of those 6 the Broncos and TexansÃ‚Â made it the farthest. The chargers have a chance to make it in as a wild card team. In order to do so they would need to beat the much improved Chiefs, the Broncos, the Texans, Colts, Redskins, Cowboys, Giants, and Eagles. If the charger can sweep those games they should have an easy time with teams like the Raiders, Titans and Jaguars. The Chargers absolutely have a chance to make it. If you previously made a slap bet that the chargers would not make the playoffs, you may want to start preparing to get slapped.
