State of the Frachise: Ascending

The San Diego Chargers missed the playoffs by one game despite not having a running game, pass-protection and a run defense. All three issues have been addressed this offseason in a big way so the Chargers will be contenders. If they get themselves a pass-rusher or have one emerge this season, I’ll pick them to go to the Super Bowl.

Next: Kansas City Chiefs
