Fate smiling on Chargers:)

Ed Hochuli aside, fate has been smiling on the Chargers this year.

How else can you explain a 7-8 team that can advance to the playoffs with a win Sunday Night at home vs. the Denver Broncos?

How else can you explain the Broncos losing at home to the Buffalo Bills?

And how else can you explain the Chargers (if they are 8-8) playing at HOME against the Indianapolis Colts (12-4 or 11-5) in the wild card round of the playoffs if the Chargers win this week?

Yes, despite it all, everything really has gone the Chargers’ way this year.

After this week, two teams among Baltimore (10-5), Miami (10-5), New England (10-5) and the New York Jets (9-6) will sit home during the playoffs.

All will have a better record than the Chargers or Denver – yet the Chargers or Broncos will go to the playoffs.

The Chargers certainly did their part with a dominating 41-24 win at Tampa Bay yesterday.

But more than anything, the stars have aligned just right for the Chargers in situations they did not control.

And to think they now control their own destiny!

I'll bet Ed Hochuli is happy he didn't cost the Chargers their season. Now let's see if they can make something of it. Chargers are favored by 8 1/2 points. They shouldn't look past Denver because the Broncos are too unpredictable.

The Chargers can't complain about luck anymore. They are one of the luckiest teams in the AFC. Tell me how much the Jets , Pats or Dolphins would not love to be in the AFC Worst; I mean AFC West. If the Chargers don't make the playoffs by winning this week at home all they have to do is go home and look in the mirror and they will see the reason why. Luck has dealt them all of the cards they can to give them this chance to make the playoffs. Go Chargers.
