If the desperate San Diego Chargers are to save their season, they’ll have to do it against the blue-collar AFC North.
Over the next three weekends, the San Diego Chargers face the 8-2 Baltimore Ravens, 5-5 Cincinnati Bengals, and 6-4 Pittsburgh Steelers (on the road). Yes, the good mathematician will tell you that those three teams are a combined 19-11, so there are no easy games during that three-week stretch.
For those that had the stamina to watch Sunday’s tilt in Denver against the Broncos, the same old problems came back to bite the San Diego Chargers when all was said and done.
With a win, the Chargers remain in the hunt for the AFC West title. Drop their fifth game in their last six contests, and the Bolts might as well start thinking about the 2013 campaign.
Losers of four of their last five games, the San Diego Chargers (4-5) head into the Mile High City this Sunday with one objective and one objective only, win.
On a day where quarterback Philip Rivers threw one of his most horrific interceptions during his tenure in San Diego, Rivers did hook up with his new acquisition for five receptions and 134 yards.
Thanks to San Diego’s 34-24 loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, the Chargers (4-5) now sit two games behind the Denver Broncos (6-3) in the AFC West race, with a trip to the Mile High City this coming Sunday.
As many Charger fans knew coming into this season, head coach Norv Turner and general manager AJ Smith were on a tight leash. Essentially, the mantra is not only make the playoffs, but at least win one round or very likely one or both will hit the road after the holidays.
So, in walked the sad Kansas City Chiefs, a team that proved just the right answer late in September, a point and time when the Chargers were scuffling after an embarrassing 27-3 home loss to Atlanta.
Chiefs QB Matt Cassel, who may have to nervously watch next April’s Draft to see who Kansas City takes with the potential top pick (could very well be a quarterback) turned the ball over twice, resulting in 14 San Diego points on the evening.
Seasoned San Diego Chargers tailgaters know the nooks and crannies of Qualcomm Stadium, but not everyone is a lifer with expert knowledge about the art of parking lot jubilees. Ensuring your tailgate scene goes off without a hitch is easy if you follow the tailgating rules of the road.
With their return to the practice, the San Diego Chargers are looking to put a game plan in place where they not only avoid a second half collapse, but enter and leave Cleveland with a confident Philip Rivers at the helm.
The most notable of the injuries is kicker Nate Kaeding, missing the last three games due to a groin injury suffered last month, as the Bolts prepared to play at Kansas City.
Given the parity that is evident in the NFL this year, a 3-3 record in the AFC is not that bad, but the San Diego Chargers could very easily have been 5-1 heading into their bye week. The Bolts have been competitive in every game except for a blowout home loss to the Atlanta Falcons in Week Three.
On Monday night in San Diego, the Chargers blew a 24 point lead, losing to Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos 35-24.
