Ranking 1-3 NFL teams most likely to bounce back - John Clayton
Blown leads against Kansas City and New Orleans put the Chargers in a tough position. I think their season is on the line in the next two weeks. They go to Oakland on Sunday, then host the Denver Broncos on Thursday, Oct. 13. If the Chargers can get to 3-3, they could potentially squeeze into the AFC wild-card picture. And they still have several upcoming games against NFC South and AFC South teams, which have struggled on defense so far. If they start the season 1-5, though, I think they're probably looking at another top-five draft pick.
