Two struggling teams will square off on Monday night when the San Diego Chargers travel across the country to take on the Jacksonville Jaguars.

The Chargers enter the game at 4-7, losers of their last six games. The Jaguars are 3-8, having lost two in a row.

Where: EverBank Field. Jacksonville, Florida

When: Monday, Dec. 5 at 8:30 p.m. EST

Watch: ESPN

Listen: KIOZ 105.3 FM & KLSD 1360 AM, Sirius: 92 in San Diego.  WOKV, Sirius: 93 in Jacksonville. Streamed at nfl.com.

Betting Line

Chargers (-3), according to Sportsbook.

That's not much of a spread. Given the change in coaching that the Jaguars are enduring, this is a good week for the Chargers to break this losing streak.

What's at Stake

At this point, a better draft pick. The Chargers are a little closer to playoff contention, as teams in their division have struggled. Still, with the Raiders and Broncos heating up, a perfect finish from the Chargers doesn't look to be good enough.

Chargers Injury Report

No injuries to report.

Jaguars Injury Report

Fantasy Start 'Em, Sit 'Em and Sleeper

Start 'Em: San Diego defense. Jacksonville's offense is abysmal and it's hard to imagine a mid-week coaching change doing any good.

Sit 'Em: Philip Rivers. Not that long ago, this would have been inconceivable, but Rivers is just throwing too many interceptions. I also like Jacksonville's defense. Keep Rivers on the bench. 

Sleeper: Jacksonville defense. I am not anticipating many points in this one.

What They're Saying

Jay Paris of the North County Times addressed the real possibility that 2011 will be Norv Turner's final year on the San Diego sideline. He also talked about whether or not Turner's job security—or lack thereof—will keep them from winning.  

Turner took the heat Monday, deflecting questions about his job security as easily as Denver's Tim Tebow brushed off tacklers in Sunday's 16-13 overtime victory. While aware of the increased chatter regarding his employment, Turner claimed that it doesn't consume him as he prepares for next Monday's game in Jacksonville.


Chargers Player to Watch

Rivers. If he doesn't turn the ball over, San Diego wins and wins easily. If he does, anything is possible.

Jaguars Player to Watch

Maurice Jones-Drew. He's the best offensive player on the team and will need to have a good game to keep the Jacksonville offense on the field.

Key Matchup

Rivers vs. the Jacksonville secondary.

On the Hotseat

Norv Turner. If he has any realistic hopes on being in San Diego next season, he can't lose another game this year. It's really that simple.

Prediction: Chargers 20, Jaguars 13

A six-game losing skid stops here. It won't matter in the long term, the Chargers are done. But for the sake of the sanity of a veteran team, this will be a good week.
