Chargers looking like Chargers?

The Chargers are starting to look like their old selves again.

Consider that in Sunday’s 24-10 win at Kansas City:

LaDainian Tomlinson rushed for 177 yards and two touchdowns.

The defense recorded eight sacks; three by Shawne Merriman.

Philip Rivers and the offense recorded only one turnover.

That’s the good news. Now comes the big question:

Can the Chargers beat the better teams in the NFL?

Their last two wins have been against Baltimore and Kansas City, two teams with only four wins apiece.

Come this Sunday, they travel to play a Tennessee team that is fighting for its playoff life.

If the Chargers can win this week, perhaps they’re for real. If not, they are still nothing more than a pretender in the NFL.

Theres no doubt the Chargers will make the playoffs, but if they can't beat a team like Tennessee, they won't go far.
