Projecting the Los Angeles Chargers record in 2022

What will be the Chargers record in 2022?

By: Jake Rajala

The Los Angeles Chargers have had one of the sexiest off-seasons — as they notably added Khalil Mack and J.C. Jackson to their defensive unit. It would be an understatement to say LAC should take a big step in 2022. With that said, I’m going to simply project the potential victories, likely losses, and overall record for the Chargers next season.

Week 1: vs the Raiders

I believe the Chargers are a bit more talented than the Raiders (especially in the secondary) and I believe LAC wins 35-21 in this contest.

Week 2: at the Chiefs

I expect them KC — with their still lethal WR group (and Travis Kelce) to win this game by a score of 35-28.

Week 3: vs the Jaguars

The Chargers will beat the new-look and likely exciting Jags team in a 28-21 show-down.

Week 4: at the Texans

I don’t love the Texans direction over the past two seasons and I believe the Chargers mop the floor against Houston by a score of 42-17.

Week 5: at the Browns

I am quite sure that the Deshaun Watson-led Browns don’t keep pace with Herbert — as I believe the Chargers win 28-17.

Week 6: vs the Broncos

I trust in the Chargers offensive explosion to pull through in their first fight in a 35-27 victory.

Week 7: vs the Seahawks

I absolutely expect the Chargers to dominate the Geno Smith-led Seahawks by a score of 35-14.

Week 8: at the Falcons

I don’t foresee the Chargers being upset in this show-down, to say the least. I expect LA to win 35-17.

Week 9: at the 49ers

The Chargers will beat Trey Lance and the 49ers (who won’t return to the playoffs in the loaded NFC) in my opinion. I expect LA to win 31-17.

Week 10: vs the Chiefs

I picked KC to drop this game and I still expect the Chargers to re-group and split games with their nemesis in Kansas City. I believe KC wins 35-21.

Week 11: at the Cardinals

I like how the Chargers match up to the Cardinals — as I project them to win 35-24.

Week 12: at the Raiders

I really believe the Chargers pull through with the sweep this week — as they beat the desperate Raiders 31-28.

Week 13: vs the Dolphins

I like the direction with the Dolphins and their chances to make the playoffs, but I believe LA is one step ahead of the Raiders. I expect LV to win 31-24 in this contest.

Week 14: vs the Titans

I honestly believe the Titans are an underrated pick to land a Top-10 draft selection in the 2023 draft. With that said, I believe LA wins 35-17 in this game.

Week 15: at the Colts

I love the Colts balance and how they match up to LA. Although, I trust the young, big-arm Herbert at this point of the season slightly more than Matty Ice himself. Hence, I believe LA wins 31-28.

Week 16: vs the Rams

I like the LA team with Aaron Donald more than the LA team with Khalil Mack. I believe the Rams win 42-35 in a high-scoring contest.

Week 17: at the Broncos

I believe Russell Wilson and the Broncos dig deep for their second divisional (as I also believe will have more reason to win) show-down — as they pull out a close, 27-24 victory.

Final record: 13-4
