Wild Card weekend in the NFL is one of the best weekends in all of sports.
The quest for the Lombardi Trophy continues for 12 teams while the rest of the league watches from home. While much of the talk is focused on the team’s still playing, it’s always a good chance to look back at the history of the league.
For the Los Angeles Chargers, there will be no Wild Card playoff game as their season is over. Just one year ago, as the team was getting ready to take on the Baltimore Ravens at M&T Bank Stadium, I looked back at the best Wild Card wins in team history.
That amazing win over the Ravens certainly deserves a spot on that list now.
Here, even though the team isn’t getting ready for a game, fans can have a chance to look back at better times. Instead of looking back at team wins, this article will be focused on individual performances for the Chargers from the Wild Card round.
In their history, the Chargers have played in just eight Wild Card games, posting an impressive 6-2 record in them. Looking back at each of those eight games, I found the five best individual performances.
Each of these guys helped their team to victory in the opening round of the playoffs. So think back to some of the most memorable games you have seen as a Chargers fan in the Wild Card round and maybe one of those performances will bring back a flood of memories for you here.
With that being said, here is that list.
