As we head into Sunday the 14th of the NFL season, it’s getting late for several teams that are on the edge when it comes to competing for a playoff spot.
These two teams could very well be facing a virtual must-win situation on Sunday.
1. Los Angeles Chargers
The Los Angeles Chargers have undoubtedly been one of the most disappointing teams in the league this year.
After several big defensive additions during the offseason, including Pro Bowlers Khalil Mack and JC Jackson, many thought Los Angeles would be a Super Bowl contender, especially considering it has an elite quarterback in Justin Herbert and potent weapons like Keenan Allen and Austin Ekeler.
Instead, the team has struggled with many injuries and is currently 6-6, which is one game behind the New York Jets for the final AFC Wild Card spot.
The Chargers will host the Miami Dolphins, a team that has looked lethal at times but is coming off a 33-17 humiliation at the hands of a battered San Francisco 49ers team.
A win against Miami would be huge, as the rest of Los Angeles’ schedule looks pretty manageable.
2. New England Patriots
After being considered by some to be dark contenders earlier in the year, the New England Patriots find themselves at 6-6, having lost back-to-back games to the Minnesota Vikings and Buffalo Bills.
They will visit the Arizona Cardinals, a team they should be able to beat on paper.
However, New England has lost a few games to struggling teams, including the Green Bay Packers and Chicago Bears.
