NFL: Team's Odds to Make the Playoffs - Rob Trites
The AFC West is pretty much up in the air after an offseason that saw the defending Super Bowl Champion Broncos seriously downgrade at the QB position. The Chargers have been tagged with the longest odds (+350) to make it out of what has the chance to be the most competitive division in pro football.

The Chargers’ first-round pick in 2011, Liuget was San Diego’s Defensive Player of the Year in 2012. In 2013, he led the team in sacks, tackles for loss, quarterback pressures and quarterback hits. He played some of his best football down the stretch in helping the Chargers reach the playoffs for the first time since 2009. He collected six of his team-leading 10 tackles for loss in the last six games and in the Chargers’ Wild Card Playoff win in Cincinnati, he led the line in tackles, while also contributing a sack, a tackle for loss, a pass defensed and a quarterback hit.
