The 2009 NFL season is quickly coming to a close, but the Chargers aren't done just yet. We move away from Week 16 and approach the final game of the regular season this Sunday, with the Chargers full of momentum as they head into the playoffs.
WILD CARD PICTURE STILL UNCLEAR
While the Indianapolis Colts and the San Diego Chargers have secured the first and second seeds in the AFC, respectively, the third and fourth seeds are still undecided. Pretty amazing considering we are in the final week of regular season play. With seven teams vying for two playoff spots in the AFC, Week 17 should be a very interesting weekend of football.
To the best of my understanding, it appears as if the Chargers would face the team who emerges from the AFC Wild Card round with the highest number of wins. Who that team would be exactly is still yet to be determined, but with the way the Chargers are playing, I'm confident they'll get to the AFC Championship game with relative ease.
ESPN HINTS THAT CHARGERS WILL REACH THE TOP SPOT IN POWER RANKINGS
I read more than one article on ESPN that suggests the Chargers will claim the top spot in their power rankings, as they currently hold the longest active streak of wins. Are the Chargers finally getting their due?
STATS AND THAT: PROVIDED BY NFL.COM
» San Diego's 10-game winning streak is tied for second longest in franchise history.
» LaDainian Tomlinson had his 36th career game with at least two rushing touchdowns, tying Emmitt Smith for most all-time. Tomlinson's 138 rushing touchdowns this decade surpassed Smith's mark of 136 as the most in a single decade.
» Phillip Rivers is 18-0 in his career in December as the Chargers' starting quarterback.
