Open Thread: Cincinnati Bengals at San Diego Chargers, 1st Half

The 7-4, first place Cincinnati Bengals travel to San Diego to take on the 5-6 Chargers, who need a victory to keep their playoff hopes alive. Chat along with other Chargers fans in the comments while watching/listening to the game.


For the final five weeks of the season, the only game that isn't a must-win for the San Diego Chargers is their Thursday night game in Denver against the Broncos. If Mike McCoy's team is going to make the playoffs, they're going to need to learn how to follow up a big win with another big win. The only back-to-back victories they have had this season were against the Colts and Jaguars.

The key to victory for San Diego is pretty simple today: Win the turnover battle. The Bengals are prone to making mistakes, but the Chargers defense will need to take advantage of each and every one.
