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.

At 7th in the AFC, you would think the Chargers would be in the thick of the playoff race, but that's not the case. They're currently tied two other teams for the 7th position, and they're a full two games behind the Pittsburgh Steelers for the last playoff spot.
