Chargers fans are starting to think about the playoffs again because of the win over the Kansas City Chiefs. Unfortunately, we have put ourselves in a situation where we have to start cheering for certain teams to stumble the rest of the way in order for us to sneak into the playoffs.
Here is your guide on who to cheer for in week 13.
FIRST: THE SAN DIEGO CHARGERS
DUH! It all ends if we don’t win. We need the win!
Indianapolis Colts over the TitansWe already lost to the Titans earlier in the year and we need to finish with a better record than the Titans. The Titans lost their starting quarterback for the rest of the season already, but the Colts have struggled without Reggie Wayne on offense.
Denver Broncos over the ChiefsThe Chiefs have lost their luster and losing three straight could put them in a downward spiral. Why not root against them. Imagine the Chiefs losing the rest of their games and finishing with a 9-7 record? It has to start with 3 straight losses this weekend.
New York Jets over the DolphinsThe Jets suck and somehow they are in the race for the playoffs, but the Dolphins are also in that race and have a win over us. We have to root for Rex Ryan and Geno Smith to get the win over the Dolphins. Not counting on that one, but the Jets have a couple of surprising wins already this year.
Baltimore Ravens over the SteelersThe Steelers might be the biggest threat at taking that last spot of the playoffs. They have been playing well of late and are making a run at that final playoff spot. The Northern division is still up for grabs also. If we beat the Bengals, these two teams could be battling for the top spot in the division and the Bengals could be the team that we need to beat out for a wild card spot.
