The San Diego Chargers would need a miracle to clinch the AFC West.
But in a division in which Tim Tebow has been performing them on a weekly basis over in Denver, anything is possible.
Previously dead and buried after losing six straight, the Chargers have rediscovered their mojo and are making their trademark surge to close out the season. San Diego is 31-6 in December games in the Philip Rivers era and is suddenly a team that nobody wants to face.
It all starts with Rivers.
No picks in the last four games, eight touchdowns, and a 68-percent completion rate all point to a quarterback in command of his game.
The return of Malcom Floyd to the lineup has taken some of the focus away from stopping Antonio Gates and Vincent Jackson in the passing game, and with Ryan Mathews now in an injury-free groove, the play-action can also flourish.
To take the division, the Chargers need to win their final two games—on the road in Detroit and Oakland—and hope that Denver falls to both the Buffalo Bills and Kansas City Chiefs.
The Lions, who are chasing a playoff berth themselves, are dangerous opponents—look at Calvin Johnson's monster outing in Week 15 as a reminder of how easily they can torch a defense.
However, their last two wins, over the Minnesota Vikings and the Oakland Raiders, were less than convincing, and against the league's best teams, Detroit has taken some sound beatings.
San Diego can take care of its own business, but it still needs a favor from the Broncos.
Tom Brady showed that the Denver defense can be dissected with a high-powered aerial attack, which neither the Bills nor the Chiefs possess.
But that's not to say that Ryan Fitzpatrick or Kyle Orton can't cause problems, or have no weapons to hurt the Broncos with, and if either quarterback gets hot, it is questionable whether Tim Tebow can keep pace on the scoreboard.
Finally, in recent weeks ball security has been a real problem for the Broncos, who cannot afford to undermine their long, clock-controlling drives by leaving the field with no points.
It's a long shot, but I'm taking the Chargers to upset the odds in the West.
