This game will be a good test for Norv Turner to see if he can motivate his troop. Even though they know they need to pretty much win out if they are going to have a chance at home field advantage, after us they play Cincy and then Denver. There is just one big softball after another. It is often hard for teams to get up for that, and if there is one thing that typifies SD this season is their up-and-down run through the schedule.
The Chargers come off a dominant win over a tough division rival and face a team that has not done well and do it on a short week. It is a typical game that will trip a team if they are not in full control. It would be a surprise, but not a big one, if this game is a close one, and a winnable one for the 49ers.
Both teams are coming off dominant wins over division rivals, the team that can get up best for this game will win it. SD has the talent advantage but that is not always what wins the game.
Still 27-24 Chargers on a Nate Keading FG as time expires.
OH, NO! I didn't just say that...
