After a slow 2-3 start, San Diego's "Super Chargers" have managed to turn it around and win seven straight.

The offense extremely productive; running or passing. Tomlinson said, "This is the most focused team I have been on."

Now that the defense is playing better, and player like Merriman and Castillo are coming back in the mix, this San Diego team is devastating and is scary hot looking to keep their December streak alive.

Only time will tell, but can San Diego run the table?


There are many reasons to believe that San Diego is the best team in the AFC.

Norv Turner's offensive unit is producing 28.5 PPG(3rd in NFL) and is producing 355.4 YPG(12th in NFL.) This team is built to win in the playoffs, and it will be interesting how they finish December.
