The San Diego Chargers defeated the St. Louis Rams yesterday 27-24.  It was a battle from the beginning to the end and the fans at Qualcomm, and at home, were on the edge of their seats for the entirety of the contest.  Every game in the NFL is difficult to win.  The victory over the Rams leads the Bolts into a brutal stretch of games that will ultimately decide their season.

In week 13, San Diego will travel to Baltimore to take on the Ravens.  This is another tough game as the Chargers continue their march toward earning a postseason bid.  The AFC playoff picture is a traffic jam as many teams are still in the hunt and fighting for their playoff lives.  The AFC North has all four of its teams with at least 6 wins.  When looking at the AFC West, the same can be said….. oops, minus Oakland.

Here are the next five games on the Charger schedule:

 

Week 13 – @Baltimore Ravens

Week 14 – New England Patriots

Week 15 – Denver Broncos

Week 16 – @San Francisco 49ers

Week 17 – @Kansas City Chiefs

 

When looking at the gauntlet that is the next 5 games, four of them are against teams from the AFC; two of which are against AFC West division rivals.  Additionally, three of the last five are on the road.  It goes without saying, each and every game from here on out is very important.  Every single one of the aforementioned opponents are in the playoff picture.

This is not going to be a long article.  I know which of these remaining games concerns me more than the others.  But I want to know what you think.  Which game concerns you the most?

Let us know by voting on the poll below and leaving a comment as to why you voted the way you did.  I am very interested to see the results.

    Lots of scenarios with 5 games left. Based on other AFC teams with 7 wins, it will likely take at least 11 (maybe 12?) wins to get a wild card. That would mean we would have to win 4 out of 5, or some of the other 7 win teams have to fall off the pace. In my view, that makes the KC game is the most essential game to win based on its tie breaking implications for playoff spots. After that, in order, Denver, NE (home game), Baltimore, and SF.

    Based on recent games, the clear playoff bound teams have all ratcheted up their speed and toughness and are playing smash mouth, dominating football. Next week in Baltimore will tell us whether the Chargers have recovered enough to compete, or whether the St. Louis game really is who we are.
