The San Diego Chargers aim for their second consecutive victory on Sunday when they return to Qualcomm Stadium to host the Carolina Panthers. The Chargers look for their first win against the NFC South this season, as they enter the game 0-3 with losses to the Atlanta Falcons, New Orleans Saints and Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
The Chargers, in what has been an uphill effort this season to sell tickets, have turned to an outside service.
They’ve partnered with Groupon, an online daily discount company, to offer a package for Sunday’s game against the Panthers. This is the first time the Chargers have sold tickets through Groupon, a team spokesman said.
It only took 12 games, plus 4 preseason games, and a full training camp, but the Chargers finally showed what they could have been – with the right off season moves, some injury luck, and a coaching staff that wasn’t trying to jam square pegs into round holes.
Familiar story: If you didn’t know they were the Panthers, you’d think they were the Chargers.
Close games? They’ve lost them all.
Beleaguered coach? Ron Rivera can share notes with his former boss Norv Turner.
Look around the NFL and you will find no worse division than the AFC West. There’s no sense in debating, it’s a fact. Outside of the Denver Broncos, the division is just awful. Nowhere else in the league does the second place team have to win out to avoid finishing with a losing record, while the bottom two teams are both all but assured a top-5 draft pick with three weeks remaining.
