Absurdly premature 2012 playoff picture: Week 4 - MJD
Over in the AFC, despite a 17-point win in Kansas City, I remain convinced that San Diego is not the team to beat in the AFC West. Kansas City turned the ball over on Sunday like it was a couch cushion that someone had peed on, and the Chargers could just never put them away.

This season, under new defensive coordinator John Pagano, Liuget is being put in position to make plays and he is producing. He was a force against Kansas City and he is a reason this unit is so improved.
