The Los Angeles Chargers are off to a lightning fast start in 2018. They currently stand at 4-2 after an impressive team performance against the Cleveland Browns. The downside to what has been a great season for the Bolts, though, is the division they're in. 


Arguably the best offensive team in football, the​ Kansas City Chiefs, sit atop the AFC West but are just one win ahead of the Chargers. There's a reason to be hopeful as an LA fan, however, since the Chiefs have the worst defense in the league.

This week, the Chargers will be traveling to London to face the Tennessee Titans. The Titans have been up and down this season but currently lead the AFC South at 3-3. It will be a statement game for the Chargers as they're trying to start a little winning streak for themselves right before their Week 8 bye.


The Chargers are HOT. They have a quarterback playing like an MVP in Philip Rivers. He currently has a QB rating of 115.3 and has thrown just three interceptions compared to 15 touchdowns. Running back Melvin Gordon has the third-most rushing yards and has continued to impress.

The Bolts are ready to be considered legit contenders, but they'll need a win on Sunday. They will be facing the Kansas City Chiefs in December, which will probably decide the AFC West. Oh, this will be fun.
