The San Diego Chargers will be interested in what is happening in the early games. Every Chargers fan will want to know the same as well, so we might as well keep an open thread on what is happening in the early games on Sunday.

The Miami Dolphins will be taking on the New York Jets and we need them to lose. We need Rex Ryan and Geno Smith to come up big for the Chargers. They have screwed us enough in the past. It would be a welcoming sight for them to knock off someone else and give the Chargers some life.

The Baltimore Ravens are going into Cincinnati to face the Bengals in a division matchup and the Chargers will need the Ravens to lay an egg also. The Chargers need a ton of help in order to get in, but this is why they play the games.

It would not be impossible for both teams to lose, but we definitely need a little bit of luck on our side. By the end of the early games, we should know if we have a chance.

We need that Christmas miracle.
