FPI is giving the Chargers a 44.9 chance to win and finish with six victories, but in either event, they'll finish in last place in the AFC West in consecutive years for the first time since the NFL's 2002 realignment. Win or lose Sunday, FPI gives them a 100 percent chance of drafting in the top 10, given the tiebreaker situation.
