Chargers need to win this week if they want to make it to the playoffs

riversThe San Diego Chargers have lost four of their past five games coming off a bye week. Last year, the Chargers lost three straight after the bye before turning things around and eventually making the postseason for the first time since 2009, but this week they will face the win less Oakland Raiders.

Sunday’s match-up is important for San Diego if it wants to stay in the playoff hunt. According to ESPN Stats & Information, under the current playoff format established in 1990, teams that have reached 6-4 have earned a playoff berth 61 percent of the time.

San Diego’s record against Oakland since 2003 is 18-5, including a stretch of 13 straight wins between 2003-09. This game is important, but I expect the Chargers to pull off a win.
