    <strong>In 2005...</strong>

    The Chargers played the NFL's toughest schedule-their opponents' record (143-113, .559) was the best in the NFL.

    The Chargers played 11 games against teams with 9-or-more wins (includes Denver and Kansas City twice)-the win-loss record of the nine opponents with 9-or-more wins was 97-47 (.674).

    The Chargers won four games against playoff teams.

    The Chargers played five games against teams that won their respective divisions.

    The Chargers played seven games against 2005 playoff teams.

    The Chargers ended New England's NFL-record 21-game home winning streak on Oct. 2.

    The Chargers ended Indianapolis' 13-game winning streak to start the season on Dec. 18.

    The AFC West and the NFC East won more games (36) than any other division in the NFL.

    The top three finishers in the AFC West (Denver, K.C. and the Chargers) combined to win 32 games, more than the top three teams in any other division.

    As a result of the strength of their 2005 opponents, the Chargers will pick 19th overall in the 2006 NFL Draft, but fourth among the four teams that all finished 9-7-Miami (.457), Minnesota (.484) and Dallas (.523) will all choose ahead of the Chargers.

    On the road, the Chargers will play Denver (13-3), Kansas City (10-6), Oakland (4-12), Baltimore (6-10), Cincinnati (11-5), Buffalo (5-11), San Francisco (4-12) and Seattle (13-3).
