Playoffs – Chargers Still Standing

After a super exciting weekend of the NFL Wildcard Playoffs the San Diego Chargers are still in the hunt for the Super Bowl.  Four playoff caliber games were played and each was very fun to watch.  The best of the bunch was the San Diego Chargers at the Cincinnati Bengals where the Chargers ran away with the game, winning 27-10.

The Chargers 17 point differential was the highest of the weekend.  In fact, the other three games were decided by three points or less.  The Packers fell to the 49ers, 23-20, the Eagles fell to the Saints, 26-24 and Kansas City fell to the Colts, 45-44.

With only eight teams remaining in the playoffs the action and excitement are only going to get better.  Wow, eight teams, two games away from the Super Bowl.  Only three games left in the season to win.  The Chargers will continue their five game winning streak next week in Denver.  This will be the third time these two teams have met this season and the series is tied at 1-1.  The game is Sunday at 1:30 Charger time.

So glad to be with our Bolts as they continue through the playoffs. Boltup!

    I wonder which NFC team would make the biggest highlight for us to go against in the SB

    49rs – to rewrite our only SB appearance in the past

    Seahawks – relive the classic forgotten rivalry

    Saints – Brees vs his replacement

      I would like it to be Carolina. That way, it would be two teams who none of the media pundits ever picked to be there. All those other “media favorite” teams can kiss off… lol. It would be just perfect for two teams who were never given a chance to make it to the big show.

        I hear you Peter. I want it to be the Seahawks, it’s the media’s favorite to be in it, so the victory will be legit. If it were the saints, then it’s “they have trouble playing outdoors” excuse. The 49ers, ” mobile Qb’s can’t win Superbowls garbage”.
        The Seahawks, great defense, great running game, Wilson is a great pocket passer. everything they like. Besides we stuffed their offense in preseason.

          I can get on board with that too… they were my second pick. I don’t necessarily care what people say, I just want a Lombardi. We can get another one next year, if the “critics” won’t give us credit. I want to play the team that I think we can beat easiest. I feel like the Panthers offense wouldn’t be able to put up as many points as we can, and may not be able to come from behind. I couldn’t care less about the Saints, or the Niners. Not a fan of either team, quite honestly. They can go fly a kite… lol.

        I think it would be cool to play the Panthers. They are a great team and I would love to see a Newton – Rivers shootout!
