If there is one team in the NFL that really needs a bye week, it’s the San Diego Chargers. After blowing two straight second-half leads on national television, it is time for the Chargers to sit back and figure out exactly what is causing them to struggle in the second half of football games.
The bye week comes at a perfect time for the Bolts, who are struggling in areas on both sides of the ball. With three of their next four games on the road and two of those in the Eastern time zone, the Chargers need to improve on the little things that will make these tough upcoming games much easier.
The Chargers head into the bye week at 3-3 and tied for first place in the AFC West. The loss to the Broncos makes the road to an AFC West title harder, but when have the Chargers done things to make their playoff aspirations easy?
Here is a list of adjustments that the Chargers must make if they want to make their dream of winning the AFC West a reality.
