Chargers playoff scenarios for 2013 still exist. The specific 2013 San Diego Chargers playoff scenarios include the team finding a way to beat the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday (Dec. 29). Good news for those chances was revealed late on Friday night (Dec. 27), when a report from ESPN confirmed that Dwayne Bowe had been ruled out for Week 17.
Bowe is one of the more talented receivers for the Chiefs, so removing him from the game will make things tougher for quarterback Alex Smith. The team will also be without one of its top pass-rushers, as Tamba Hali has also been ruled out of the game. With no reason to risk further injury after clinching the No. 5 seed already, there was no rush for the team to get those players back on the field.
When it comes down to the 2013 San Diego Chargers playoff scenarios, a lot teams to work in favor of the team during Week 17 action. Currently, they are tied with the Baltimore Ravens and Miami Dolphins with identical 8-7 records in the AFC standings. Unfortunately for team, in a three-way tie, San Diego ends up losing the overall tie-breakers to Miami for that No. 6 seed. If the team ties with Baltimore, they will also lose the tie-breakers with the Ravens.
For everything to work out, the Cincinnati Bengals need to beat Baltimore in a 10 a.m. PT game, Miami needs to lose to the New York Jets in another 10 a.m. PT game, and then Philip Rivers has to lead his team past the Kansas City Chiefs at 1:25 p.m. PT. Playing at home gives Rivers a great shot to win this game, but everything may already be decided by the time the teams take the field on Sunday afternoon.
