The Chargers sit in second place of the AFC West on a 7-6 record. Despite standings and mediocre stats, this team stands in a good position for a number of reasons.

Furthermore, the four-time reigning AFC West Champions have won in the last two meetings with the 49ers, as well as five of six of their last games. If they won, this would mark the team’s second consecutive win after Sunday’s eradication of their division rivals, the Kansas City Chiefs [31-0].
