    The Chargers have now beaten all 3 division rivals on the road in the same season.

    @ Denver 41-3

    @ Kansas City 24-10

    @ Oakland 30-17

    Total @ Rivals: 95-30, scoring 11 TD and allowing just 3 TD.

    Granted, all three division opponents aren't that good right now, but still, it's quite a rare accomplishment. The Chargers were a FG in KC away from doing it last year as well.

    The last time the Chargers beat all 3 division opponents on the road was the 1994 season.

    That 1994 season:

    @ Denver (Week 1): 37 - 34

    @ L.A. Raiders (Week 4): 26 - 24

    @ Kansas City (Week 11): 14 - 13

    The Bolts went 11-5 that season as well, and their record was good enough for the #2 seed at the time. They had a first round bye, beat Miami at home 22-21, and then beat a heavily favored Pittsburgh team in their house, 17-13.

    Nice post Slug. This team isn't going anywhere and we're young and for the most part everybody is signed and I'm confident AJ will lock-up who he sees fit. :bolt:

    That's it - in the name of all that is holy in the NFL, we must win the SB. :tup:

    I just finished cleaning up the goat entrails. It looked like Lombardi time.
