The 1998 San Diego Chargers season began with the team trying to improve on their 4–12 record in 1997. It was Kevin Gilbride’s final season as the team's head coach. After a 2–4 start, Gilbride was fired and June Jones coached the final ten games of the season as interim head coach. The team's defense led the league in yards allowed; however, a weak offense under infamous draft bust quarterback Ryan Leaf meant that the team was last in the AFC West.


NFL Draft

1st round 2nd overall Ryan Leaf

Regular season

The opening game for 1998 constituted the first time since 1985 that the Chargers played the Buffalo Bills. The reason for this is that before the admission of the Texans in 2002, NFL scheduling formulas for games outside a team’s division were much more influenced by table position during the previous season.
