Before the Chargers and Indianapolis Colts meet in the wild card playoffs Saturday night, let’s take a little history lesson.
The Chargers started out the 1995 season with a 4-7 record, only to win their last five games and make the playoffs.
(Sound similar to making this year’s playoffs after starting 4-8 and winning four straight?)
Back on New Year’s Eve 1995, the Chargers and Colts met in the wild card round of the playoffs in San Diego.
Led by a quarterback named Jim Harbaugh, the Colts easily disposed of the Chargers, 35-20.
Now that the task is to beat Colts QB and three-time MVP Peyton Manning, the Chargers probably won’t have it any easier than in 1995.
But this time, at least they should make it closer.
Colts 27, Chargers 23
