LIVE: San Diego Chargers at San Francisco 49ers, 1st Half

The 8-6 San Diego Chargers travel up the coast to Santa Clara to take on the 7-7 San Francisco 49ers in a game with huge playoff implications.

Welcome to the first of two must-win-games for the San Diego Chargers.

Their path to the playoffs can be relatively simple. All they have to do is win their next two games, finish 10-6, and hope that the Baltimore Ravens finish with the same record (they're currently 9-5).

This game was thought to be a "nightmare" earlier in the season, but the Niners have fallen apart and now are mathematically eliminated from playoff contention. They have nothing to play for tonight except pride. Will that be enough?
