Chargers can salvage record; NFL.
But the Californian club, who shot themselves in the foot once too often with last week's loss in Cincinnati, seem more likely to sign off with a comfortable success to earn a winning 9-7 record than disappoint again.
They are facing a different challenge from Denver than the one they faced when they overcame the Broncos 35-14 six weeks ago as mobile rookie QB Tim Tebow gives the home side an extra dimension.
But Tebow has thrown fewer than 50 passes in the league and completed only 16 of his 29 attempts as the Colorado outfit rallied to beat Houston last week.
The Chargers defence are ranked first in the league statistically and are clearly better than anything Tebow has faced.
San Diego have got used to overcoming offensive injuries this season, so their latest woes are nothing new and Denver's defence conceded 105 points in their last three games.
