Sitting at 4-3, the Chargers have a hill to climb if they're going to catch either the second-place Denver Broncos (7-1) or the first-place and unbeaten Kansas City Chiefs (8-0) in the AFC West. Although the Bolts have yet to play either rival this season (play four games in all against them in November and December), first things first.
After holding a 21-7 lead last Sunday in the Mile High City against Peyton Manning and the Broncos, Washington (2-5) watched as the home team ran off 38 unanswered points in a 45-21 victory.
During the contest, Washington QB Robert Griffin III banged up his knee, though both he and the Redskins claim that he is good to go come Sunday versus San Diego.
For the Chargers, a win Sunday would make it three in a row on the season (Indianapolis, Jacksonville), giving San Diego momentum heading into its showdown with Manning and the Broncos on Sunday, Nov. 10 in San Diego.
