Each season, we preview the games by looking at three reasons the Chargers will win and lose each week. Here is why they will lose.
It has been a little while since Watt was unseated as the National Football League’s best player, but he is definitely still among The League’s elite, and it is certainly no fluke that the 29-year-old Mercilus already has 3 sacks. The former 1st-round pick is playing in his natural position of outside linebacker, and he is thriving. There is no reason to think that Mercilus, coming off winning AFC Defensive Player of the Week, will be slowed down much if at all by the Chargers’ sorry collection of offensive tackles.
