The Chargers have a problem winning regular season openers

The Chargers are looking to build off a very impressive 12-4 2018 record; in order to do so, Los Angeles will have to accomplish something they don’t normally do: Win a regular season opening game. Under former head coach Mike McCoy and current head coach Anthony Lynn, the Chargers have failed miserably in Week 1.

Here are all six opening-day outcomes since 2013:

  • 2013: Loss
  • 2014: Loss
  • 2015: Win
  • 2016: Loss
  • 2017: Loss
  • 2018: Loss

All five losses were games in which the Chargers had a chance to win or tie, only to fall short or give up a lead every time.
