Baltimore; at Kansas City; at Tennessee; Detroit.
All of a sudden, the schedule does not look quite as imposing.
Baltimore comes here Sunday on a four-game losing streak. Kansas City is out of running backs, among other things.
Tennessee has lost two straight. Detroit is a 6-5 team in a tailspin.
Of course, the biggest thing the Chargers have going against themselves is themselves.
They are the NFL’s worst offense over the last four games. They have the second worst defense in that time span.
Even so, they are 2-2 in their four games.
So it looks like – even in spite of Norv Turner, A.J. Smith and Ted Cottrell – the Chargers may be well on their way to the playoffs.
Chargers 23, Ravens 14
