    San Diego and Buffalo, two second place teams with playoff aspirations, meet in a key AFC contest Sunday afternoon.

    Despite a 4-5 start, the Buffalo Bills are just one game behind the Patriots in the AFC East and still very much in contention for the Division title. Willis McGahee is proving he has fully recovered from his college injury, rushing for 856 yards on the season. However, the running back has been unable to translate those gains in to touchdowns, having just four on the season.

    Newly inserted starting quarterback J.P. Losman came off the bench to lead the Bills to two touchdowns in their 14-3 victory over Kansas City. Losman had initially been the team's starter but had struggled as the Bills started the season 1-3 and was eventually benched in favor of Kelly Holcomb.

    The San Diego Chargers are 5-4, a full game better than the Buffalo Bills but what a difference the division makes. Despite the better record, the Chargers are two games behind the front running Broncos.

    San Diego has proven to be outstanding on offense, averaging 28 points per game, good for third in the NFL. The Chargers are led by the multi-talented LaDainian Tomlinson. The fleet-footed running back has 15 touchdowns on the season, 13 rushing. Both numbers are good for second best in the league behind Shaun Alexander of the Seahawks. Tomlinson also has rushed for 835 yards, good for 6th in the league, caught 28 passes for 264 yards, and has completed all three of his pass attempts on the season.

    After starting the season 0-2, the San Diego Chargers have won 5 of 7. There only two losses during that stretch are to strong NFL title contenders, the Steelers and Eagles. Meanwhile, Buffalo is a sterling 4-1 at home but is 0-4 on the road. Because this one is in San Diego, the Chargers are 10 point favorites.
