The Baltimore Ravens will clash with the San Diego Chargers in a big AFC match up on Sunday afternoon. The Ravens are continuing to push for the AFC North divisional title, and another win today would move them one step closer. However, the Chargers must win this if they want to have any hope of making a push for the postseason. The game is scheduled to begin at 4.05 p.m. ET and can be watched online through free live stream by clicking on the link provided below.
The Ravens are in command in the AFC North, with a record of 8-2 another win today would consolidate their position at the top of the division. Their nearest rivals are the Pittsburgh Steelers who are two games back on 6-4 prior to Sunday's games, and so far have not had the consistency to trouble the Ravens for first place.
Meanwhile the San Diego Chargers have been struggling this season and come into this game two games off from a .500 record. With just four wins and six defeats from their 10 games so far, they need to string a number of wins together if they are to make a push to be included in the postseason calendar.
Amazingly despite their 4-6 record the Chargers are still second in a weak AFC West division, which also includes the 3-7 Oakland Raiders, and the basement Kansas City Chiefs who are 1-9.
The Ravens have shown the rest of the NFL how to react when things don't go right. In Week 7 they were destroyed by the Houston Texans, but in the aftermath, regrouped during their bye week and have come back to win three straight games, including an all-important win against their AFC North rivals the Pittsburgh Steelers.
The Chargers will hope quarterback Philip Rivers can lead them today in attacking a Ravens' secondary missing Lardarius Webb and Jimmy Smith. Rivers has been one shining light in a dark season for the Chargers, completing 228 throws from 340 attempts for 2461 yards and an impressive 17 touchdowns.
