A season of promise ended in disaster for the Los Angeles Chargers. The Chargers peaked with a regular season record of 10-6. And they were printing cash with a 4-0-1 mark against the spread in their final five regular season games. But Los Angeles began to falter when head coach Brandon Staley got too cute. First, Staley recklessly played key players in the final regular season game at the Denver Broncos. And that ended up needlessly harming his lineup. Next, Staley gave an Amateur Hour performance in the wild card playoff game at Jacksonville. The Chargers led the Jaguars 27-0 late in the 2nd quarter. But Staley failed to milk the clock and nurse the lead. Los Angeles lost 31-30 on a game-ending 36-yard field goal by Riley Patterson. And all of good will LA built up was nuked.

Trevor Lawrence was the number one pick in the 2021 NFL Draft. And he has been called a generational quarterback. Lawrence delivered a generational comeback on Saturday night in the Wild Card round. Lawrence overcame four interceptions with four touchdown passes and one of the most improbable turnarounds in NFL postseason history. The Jags rallied to a 31-30 victory over the Chargers on Saturday night.

Lawrence engineered the winning drive, highlighted by Travis Etienne's 25-yard run on a fourth-and-1 play, and put the Jaguars in position for Riley Patterson's 36-yard field goal on the final play. It capped a 27-point comeback, the largest in franchise history and the third largest in playoff history.

Patterson's kick barely stayed inside the right upright and set off a raucous celebration for a franchise that had won a combined four games over the previous two years. The Jaguars won their sixth consecutive game and fifth straight at home - all five in come-from-behind fashion.

Lawrence finished 28-of-47 passing for 288 yards. Lawrence was downright dreadful to begin Jacksonville's first playoff game since losing in the 2017 AFC title game.

Lawrence misfired on 12 of his first 16 throws and started getting booed long before halftime. His confidence seemed shot. His swagger appeared gone. All the progress he made in his first season with coach Doug Pederson looked like it would be flushed in the team's finale.

But Lawrence never gave up. He connected with Evan Engram, Marvin Jones, Zay Jones, and Christian Kirk for touchdowns. And that increased the team's belief in its quarterback and comeback potential.

Jacksonville's defense responded by sacking Justin Herbert and then forcing a punt. Lawrence took over from there, with a significant assist from Etienne - and Peterson's bold play call.

Justin Herbert threw for 273 yards and a touchdown without an interception, but the Chargers' offense was largely ineffective after a 62-yard TD drive that made it 24-0 midway through the second quarter. Los Angeles finished with 320 yards of offense and 18 first downs, producing only three points on four second-half possessions.

The Chargers play in the AFC West, considered the best division in pro football. Los Angeles has shared that same division with the Las Vegas Raiders, Kansas City Chiefs, and Denver Broncos since their founding in 1960. The Division boasts four of the best quarterbacks in football. Justin Herbert of the Chargers, Patrick Mahomes of the Chiefs, Russell Wilson of the Seahawks, and Derek Carr of the Raiders will be lighting up the stat sheets and scoreboards all season.

The Chargers will make their first prime time appearance in week two with a Prime Video game at the Kansas City Chiefs. This game will set the tone for the AFC West race. Another key AFC West game comes in week six when the Chargers will host the Denver Broncos on ESPN Monday Night Football.

NBC Sunday Night Football will feature the Chargers at the San Francisco 49ers in week 10. In Week 16, the Chargers are again on ESPN Monday Night Football at the Indianapolis Colts with AFC playoff position likely at stake.

And in Week 17, NBC Sunday Night Football will feature a Chargers “home” game against the Super Bowl champion Rams. Both teams share SoFi Stadium.

Founded in 1960 as charter members of the American Football League, the Los Angeles Chargers moved to San Diego in 1961. Barron Hilton, an heir to the famous hotel chain, was the original owner. He named the team the Chargers after his credit card company that was aligned to his hotels and restaurants. The early Chargers were the power of the American Football League. Their marquee man was Hall of Fame receiver Lance “Bambi” Alworth. Head coach Sid Gilman was a pioneer in passing game development. The Chargers played in the first two AFL championship games, losing both. Finally, they won the 1963 AFL championship. After losing the AFL championship game in the next two years, the Chargers went into a long period of darkness.

But head coach Don Coryell and quarterback Dan Fouts led a franchise resurgence in the early 1980s. Following that was another long period of losing. The Chargers made their only Super Bowl appearance in the 1995 season, losing to the 49ers.

From 2004 through 2018, the Chargers made the playoffs seven times. For most of those years, the quarterback was Philip Rivers, who could never get the Chargers to the Super Bowl.

Finally, after years of futility in trying to get a new stadium built, the Chargers returned to LA from San Diego in 2017.
