The Chargers barely beat an overrated Raiders team that was shooting themselves in the foot all night. Yep, it’s the same old early season Chargers. That game reminds me of their close early season wins against bad teams last year, Miami, Denver, Minnesota, and Kansas City, all by 10 or fewer points. Playing a real team next week in the Titans, they might not find themselves so lucky, even if Ryan Mathews returns to give them a running game. Of course, they’ll eventually get it together and probably make the playoffs, where they’ll go one and done as favorites. After all, it is their way.
