Anthony Lynn had a promising start as Chargers coach. He posted an NFL betting record of 9-7 as a rookie. And then came a 12-4 playoff season in 2018. But from there Lynn has struggled. Last year the Chargers fell to 5-11. Lynn was given a mulligan because of injury problems. This year Lynn’s seat is a five-alarm fire. Los Angeles has snatched defeat from the jaws of victory several times this year. Certainly, defensive coordinator Gus Bradley may pay for the failures with his job. The question is if Lynn survives as well. New England visits LA Sunday.
