San Diego Chargers
Being the sixth and final seed in the NFL playoffs usually means you’re a sizable underdog. When it comes to the San Diego Chargers, that holds true a second weekend straight.
The Denver Broncos are arguably the best team in the NFL, but that doesn’t mean they’re going to win this week. In fact, many stats show Peyton Manning and his Broncos are more likely to lose than win, as the No. 1 seed against the No. 6 seeded San Diego Chargers.
Not many people expected the San Diego Chargers to go into Denver on a Thursday night last month and come away with a win. Now, can the Bolts do it all over again?
The Cincinnati Bengals haven’t won a playoff game in 23 years and now one more year can be added onto that streak. The San Diego Chargers were able to continue their rejuvenated season by dominating the Bengals and eliminating Cincinnati from the playoffs.
Every game this weekend has fascinating plots, from Cincinnati trying to break their playoff futility to the Frozen Tundra earning its sobriquet with a 30-below wind chill expected Sunday.
The Cincinnati Bengals had an unexpectedly successful season with an AFC North crown and a trip to the playoffs. Now, they’re facing off with a San Diego Chargers team they beat just a few weeks ago, but they may be facing them without a number of players.

On the surface, you can look and say the Ravens blew their chance to get in the playoffs by getting smoked by the Patriots.

Man, was it a surprising week-end in the NFL, and it looks like the Ravens need to sweep to get in the playoffs.
The Ravens are 6-6, and I am not convinced they are much better than an average team. That said, it should be enough to get them in the playoffs.
