Lets face it folks..this game is going to come down to how successful the Defense is. If we can manage some pressure, we all know Rivers is prone to throw picks. This will be the game that gives our D the confidence it needs!

My only prediction is that Robert Meachem will again score in a Fleur-de-Lis end zone.

Welcome home, Robert. I miss you, anyway...

Do the Chargers make a lot of mistakes? I don't know. Especially on O. We need to face an offense that punts every once in a while, by their own doing, without needing to be actually stopped, if we want to have ANY shot to win a game right now.

It seems from looking at the box score like SD pretty much rolled all over Kansas City's defense, at will, and only the occasional holding call or fumble or other mistake would slow them down. Unlike our game against the Chiefs, the Chargers kept the pedal to the metal all through the game and were scoring almost at will the entire time, getting a big lead early and then adding more points to it until late into the 4th. So we will need to play very good mistake-free football for all 4 quarters to win this.
I sure hope we win the coin toss.
