Los Angeles Chargers
By far, the worst pass defense in the NFL this season has to be the Los Angeles Chargers. They are allowing 310 passing yards per game, which is almost 40 yards more than the next team. In addition, the Chargers have given up 12 passing touchdowns while forcing only four interceptions.
While the performance hasn't been great to this point, the Chargers do have some talent in the secondary with safety Derwin James but also cornerback Asante Samuel Jr., who was a second round pick in the 2021 NFL Draft. They also recently traded J.C. Jackson to the New England Patriots and now have a hole opposite Samuel at cornerback.
Kaiir Elam during his time in college was very good at forcing turnovers and playing the ball when in the air with six interceptions and 20 passes defended over three seasons. A player like that in this defense could help force more turnovers and improve their pass defense.
