Chargers Daily Links: Chargers slip to third place in the AFC West as Week 10 comes to a close

Your source for all Chargers and NFL news from around the web. The Bolts slipped down to third place in their division after Week 10’s results were completed with the Broncos beating the Bills to edge closer to leaping the Bolts.

NFL: Los Angeles Chargers at New York Jets Robert Deutsch-USA TODAY Sports

Good Morning, Bolts From the Blue.

The disappointment of Sunday’s loss to the Lions has only been compounded as a renewed Denver Broncos team beat the Buffalo Bills on Monday night to threaten to leap ahead of the Bolts in the AFC West standings.

AFC West standings after Week 10

Week 10’s results mean the Chargers have dropped to third place as the Las Vegas Raiders followed the Chargers’ example in beating the New York Jets. The Bolts are tied with the Broncos at 4-5 but their division record is better so that keeps them in third place for now.

Other than the desperately awful New England Patriots the entire AFC is in the playoff race with only one win separating the 7th seed from the 14th. The Chargers are firmly in the lower tier of the wildcard hunt sitting 12th after losing yet another chance to put pressure on those above them.

If Brandon Staley’s Chargers aren’t able to start to stack wins then they will be on the outside looking in by the time December rolls around. The third year head coach will be under more pressure than he already is if his team fails to beat the struggling Green Bay Packers on Sunday.
