    We all know the Chargers earn the No. 2 seed with a victory (or tie) or a New England loss (or tie) over the next two games.

    But if the Chargers fail to win and New England fails to lose (against Jacksonville and at Houston), the Patriots would get the No. 2 seed based on having a better record against common opponents. The Patriots beat Baltimore and Tennessee and split with Miami and Denver for a 3-2 record against common foes. Should the Chargers lose to the Titans on Friday, they would finish 2-3 against those teams.

    Now, if the Cincinnati Bengals win out (against Kansas City and at the New York Jets) and get into a three-way tie at 11-5 with the Chargers and Patriots, the Chargers would be the second seed by virtue of having a better strength of victory.

    The Chargers' wins have come over teams with a combined .455 winning percentage -- far better than what New England and Cincinnati can achieve.

    Chargers special teams coach Steve Crosby coached many years at Nashville's Vanderbilt University in the 1990s, including serving as offensive coordinator under head coach Woody Widenhofer from 1998-01 after coaching the offensive line from 1991-94.

    Titans reserve DEs Dave Ball and Eric Bakhtiari both played for San Diego. Ball was drafted by the Chargers in the fourth round of 2004 and played eight games with the club over his first two NFL seasons. Bakhtiari was a rookie free agent for the Chargers in 2008 and spent last season on their practice squad.

    QB Philip Rivers is from Athens, Alabama, which is approximately 90 minutes from Nashville. He was named Alabama Player of the year following his senior year at Athens High School, where his dad, Steve, was head coach. Rivers said that he is bringing as many as 70 friends to what should be a "homecoming" of sorts.

    Coach Norv Turner mentored Titans coach and native Californian Jeff Fisher during the latter's playing career (1977-80) at USC. Turner served as position coach (defensive backs) for Fisher's senior season. Defensive coordinator Ron Rivera also played with Fisher on the Chicago Bears from 1984-85.

    Chargers OT Jon Runyan was drafted by the Titans (then-Houston Oilers) in the fourth round of 1996. From 1997-99, he started 48 straight regular season games for Tennessee, including his last game for the franchise in Super Bowl XXXIV. Runyan has announced he will retire after the season to run for Congress in New Jersey.
