The 49ers and Chargers seemingly couldn't be in more different situations right now. The Chargers are on the cusp of making the playoffs and in the final push to make it in. The 49ers were eliminated from playoff contention just last week. Jim Harbaugh seems to have one foot out the door, running to catch a flight to Michigan. But that doesn't mean this game will be a cakewalk for the Chargers.
San Francisco's offense has not looked particularly scary this season. Have they given up? We'll find out. Regardless, given the Charger's defensive performances lately, Colin Kaepernick and the rest of the 49ers offense will have a tough go of it themselves.
San Diego's offense has had trouble finding a rhythm the last few weeks, and that doesn't appear to get any better. It's already been confirmed that the Chargers will be without two of their biggest offensive playmakers in San Francisco with Ryan Mathews and Keenan Allen sitting out.
Should be a fun and exciting game, and one that the Chargers have a great chance of winning. Go Chargers!
