The Chargers will play three of their last five games on the road -- facing four playoff teams from last season in New England, Denver, San Francisco and Kansas City. San Diego won its last four games last season to reach the postseason for the first time since 2009, but the Chargers will be hard-pressed to do that again if placed in a similar situation.
