The Chargers head into Cleveland with a pair losses behind them. But are optimistic as they face week eight against the Browns.
To win this game, the Chargers will need to not beat themselves. Penalties were huge factors against the Saints and Broncos.
The Chargers have taken themselves out of field goal range in crucial situations and having those points could be the difference in close games.
The second half has also been an issue for the Chargers in the past two weeks. In both games they gave up leads in the second half and could not find an answer to the opponent points. They need to find a way to keep up the success of the offense in the second half.
The answer is to establish the run game. The more passes Philip Rivers has to force, the more mistakes happen and thus turnovers become a huge factor in the game. Ryan Mathews and company need to find a way to move the ball efficiently on the ground. Ryan Mathews needs to start playing like the top draft pick he is.
