- “Philip Rivers wins December games. The offensive line has kept Rivers healthy even with some injuries of its own. They’re utilizing LaDainian Tomlinson in a smart way. They have just done a good job of improving as the season progresses.” – STEVE MARUICCI on the key reasons that the Chargers are on a nine-game winning streak
- “The Chargers will be bound and determined to stop Chris Johnson from breaking the rushing record. Ron Rivera’s defense is going to be wound up and will try and put a fence around him.” – STEVE MARIUCCI on how much running room Titans’ RB Chris Johnson will have against the Chargers
- “Since the Chargers clinched, I’m not worried about their momentum, I’m not worried about their December record – to me that’s not a big deal. The biggest thing is health going in to the playoffs. But, the Titans need this win because that’s the only way they’ll keep their playoff hopes alive.” – CHARLES DAVIS on who needs this win the most
- “The Chargers might be the best team in football right now.” – STEVE MARIUCCICHARGERS (11-3) at TITANS (7-7)
