The two have met once in the playoffs, when the Bengals prevailed in the Freezer Bowl, the 1981 AFC title game which denied the Chargers their first trip to a Super Bowl.

    PLAYER TO WATCH: QB Carlson Palmer

    The former USC Heisman Trophy winner is hoping this season doesn't turn into a bust. Bouncing back from a serious knee injury suffered in last season's playoffs, Carson has delivered an up-and-down season in his fourth year. He's completed 158-of-258 passes (61 percent) for 1,879 yards, 12 TDs and six INTs. Palmer's 89.3 rating places him ninth overall, but more telling are his struggles on third downs. Among the reason the Bengals' offense is producing uneven performances is Palmer's third-down rating of 66.7, which is 25th in the league. Half of the 6-foot-5, 230-pound Palmer's interceptions have come on third downs, which speaks also to protection breakdowns which have forced some hurried throws.
