Norv Turner has received many opportunities in San Diego ... his final one may come on Sunday. The Chargers go to Denver to face a Broncos squad that has won four in a row, including a 24-point comeback in Week 6 in San Diego. A win puts the Chargers just one game back in the AFC West, while a loss all but hands the division to the Broncos.
