Based off of this site called playoffrace.com, the Chargers have a 4.06% chance to make the playoffs at this point. DANG! So you’re saying there is a chance?!
Even after a win against the Broncos on Thursday the Chargers chances go up only 3.75%. We need a ton of help in order to make the playoffs.
There still is hope, but we can only control the games that we play. We have the Broncos on Thursday and we have to hope that the teams that are ahead of us falter. The Miami Dolphins are facing off against the New England Patriots this weekend. The Patriots lost their number 1 receiver this season when Rob Gronkowski went down with an injury. We will have to hope Tom Brady pulls that game off for us.
We also have to hope the defending champs falter at home against the Detroit Lions.
If they both lose, we still would only be tied with those teams and we don’t hold many tie breakers against these teams. We need a lot of things to go right, but we have seen miracles work in our favor before.
First things first… BEAT THE BRONCOS!
