The San Diego Chargers will travel to Tampa Bay to face the Buccaneers on Sunday in their important Week 10 match up. Both of these teams' seasons are in the balance and could go either way right now, and a win today for one of these sides could inspire a second half of the season run, where as for the other it will threaten to drop them down in the division and make a run for the postseason that much more difficult. The game is scheduled to start at 1 p.m. ET and can be watched online through free live stream via the link below.
Both sides enter this game with a record of 4-4. The San Diego Chargers are currently second in the AFC West but things are extremely close. They are just a game behind first placed Denver Broncos, but only a game ahead of the Oakland Raiders. Today's result could potentially determine whether the Chargers will be looking up challenging for the first position or fighting it out for second placed with Oakland.
San Diego will be hoping that their lull is over, having defeated Kansas City in Week 9 they managed to end their three game losing streak. That 31-13 victory will have boosted their confidence and given them renewed hope that they can make a push for the play offs.
Tampa Bay are in a slightly different situation. They too are 4-4 and in second place in the NFC South, however, they are far from challenging for the divisional title. The Atlanta Falcons are sitting in first place with a perfect 8-0 record. It would take a turn around of massive proportions for Tampa Bay to overturn the Falcons' lead in the division. Meanwhile, New Orleans Saints are just a game behind Tampa Bay in third, meaning a win today is essential for the Buccaneers if they are to keep their noses in front and maintain full control over second place.
