Let’s go back to a couple history lessons.
We all know that the Chargers:
Were the first team ever to start a season 0-4 and make the playoffs (1992)
Are the only team ever to start 4-8 and make the playoffs (2008)
Are the only team ever to win a division after being three games back with three to play (2008)
Now, can the Chargers write even more history?
If the Chargers and Baltimore Ravens both win in the coming weekend, the Chargers will be the first fourth-seeded team ever to host an AFC (or NFC) Championship.
The Ravens play Saturday afternoon at Tennessee; the Chargers on Sunday afternoon at Pittsburgh.
If they both win, they become the first No. 4 vs. No. 6 seeded teams to meet for a conference championship ... not the mention the Chargers would be the first 8-8 regular season team ever to host a title game.
The chances of it happening are about as big as Darren Sproles, but no offensive player had a better weekend.
With a lot of luck, it could be Ravens at Chargers on Jan. 18 to decided the AFC representative in the Super Bowl.
And by the way, if you have tickets for the Jan. 17 Monster Jam at Qualcomm Stadium, you might think about alternate plans that night.
The event could be postponed due to an AFC Championship Game the next day!
