San Diego Chargers (4-3)
What they’ve done well: The Chargers have to try to chase down the surprising Broncos, but they have a great chance thanks to quarterback Phillip Rivers and an underrated crew of receivers. San Diego is one of the league's best passing teams, ranking in 4th in passing yards per game with 276.3. Rivers is a gunslinger who will hold on to the ball, take the hit and deliver a strike to wide receiver Vincent Jackson or tight end Antonio Gates.
Needs improvement: San Diego needs more from LaDainian Tomlinson. A couple of seasons ago, Tomlinson was considered the best all-around back. Now he looks like an old man. The only time the running game gets a lift is when Darren Sproles plays. The defense doesn't have any bite, either. The Chargers are giving up 132.1 rushing yards per game (27th in the league) and opponents are running all over linebacker Shawne Merriman.
