The 4-5 San Diego Chargers are getting desperate for a win, but that won't be an easy feat in Chicago against the 6-3 Bears.
The whole Chargers team seems to be in a funk right now, and if the losses continue to pile up, Norv Turner may be out of a job at the end of this season.
Quarterback Philip Rivers is one of the league's best quarterbacks, but he has struggled lately along with the rest of the team. Running backs Ryan Mathews and Mike Tolbert provide threats in the run game, while Vincent Jackson and Antonio Gates are Rivers' favorite targets in the passing game.
The defense is very talented and highly ranked in yards allowed and passing yards allowed, but somehow they still manage to allow the fifth-most points per game.
Meanwhile, the home team is on fire. Bears quarterback Jay Cutler, who has a spotty history with Rivers, has been playing well lately behind his improved offensive line. Running back Matt Forte is the team's top weapon, leading both the rushing and receiving categories.
Oh, and they have this guy named Devin Hester, who scores them all kinds of points.
Chicago's defense is one of the best in the league, although the numbers don't show it. The Bears have gotten much better on that side of the ball lately.
San Diego is in a must-win situation, but I doubt it will happen this week against the red-hot Bears.
