Last week: 8 (-1)
The Chargers finish September with a 3-1 record for the 2nd year in a row, something they hadn’t done in the Norv Turner era prior to last year. However, much like last year, they beat up on crappy teams in September and got blown out against the only good team they faced. They started last year 4-1 before losing 6 straight and eventually barely making it to .500. They also rank just 20th in yards per play differential. There are certainly plenty of concerns with this team, but for now, they’re the favorite in the AFC West, in my opinion. Those two those games against the Broncos are going to be key though because I think this is the tightest division race in the NFL.

Mathews has seen his playing time take a hit due to his penchant of fumbling....

With San Diego Chargers running back Ryan Mathews struggling to hold onto the football, Jackie Battle is now listed as the starting running back down in Southern California.
I’m sure the Chargers will give Mathews a chance to earn his starting spot back, but right now Battle is getting the job done.
