Sunday’s game for the San Diego Chargers against hated AFC West rival Oakland is essentially a “must-win” game if the Bolts are to remain in the hunt for the division crown or a wild card spot come the end of December.
Turnovers will again be key, for both teams. Miami and Buffalo are tied for second in the NFL with 19 takeaways.
After dropping their season-opener 18-17 to the now 8-1 Arizona Cardinals, the Bolts reeled off five straight victories, even holding the lead in the AFC West for a time. Now, however, the Chargers (5-4) sit in third place in the division, with a pair of hot teams in front of them, respectively Denver (7-2) and Kansas City (6-3).
With the Chargers (5-4) currently in the midst of a three-game slump, here is a look at the remaining seven games and who is likely to be favored going into each of them:

First place is on the line in the air tight AFC North as the Browns visit the Bengals on Thursday night. Considering the Browns are involved, that’s hard to believe-remember, Cleveland hasn’t posted more than five wins since 2007.
In the latest thrashing, the Chargers gave up 37 points to the Miami Dolphins this past Sunday in a 37-0 blowout in Miami. Keep in mind, that the Dolphins and Ryan Tannehill are not exactly the equivalent of Peyton Manning and the Broncos, or Drew Brees and the Saints when it comes to offensive firepower.
Minnesota Vikings star Adrian Peterson avoided jail Tuesday by reaching a deal with Texas prosecutors to resolve a child abuse case that revived a national debate about corporal punishment.
