The Los Angeles Chargers, still reeling from last week’s loss, must regroup and get ready for the incoming Arizona Cardinals.

The Chargers were rolling after winning six straight games. They were being talked about as one of the best teams in the AFC, though their detractors pointed to what had been a bit of a soft schedule.

Still, most Chargers fans chalked the game last Sunday against the struggling Denver Broncos up as a win. W all saw how that went. As a result. the team can’t make the same mistake against teh Arizona Cardinals.

The Chargers should have beaten the Broncos and the argument can easily be made that they beat themselves. The Cardinals won’t be feeling sorry for them and will be looking to hand them a second defeat in a row.

The Cardinals are easily one of the league’s worst teams and the Chargers should be considered heavy favorites in this game, Still, this is professional football and the phrase “any given Sunday” always applies.

The Cardinals will be hungry for a win after a disappointing loss to the Oakland Raiders and although they are almost certain to be selecting in the top five of next year’s draft, first-year head coach Steve Wilks knows he needs to start finding a way to get some wins.

Everything points to the Chargers picking up their eighth win of the season, but as Chris Berman used to say, “that’s why they play the games”. Here are three pitfalls the Chargers must avoid in order to win this game.
