The San Diego Chargers entered the 2014 NFL season with playoff aspirations, but not many people expected them to have a realistic shot at making it to the Super Bowl over teams like the Denver Broncos and Indianapolis Colts.

For instance, yesterday gave us last-minute heroics in Washington, Detroit, and Buffalo, upsets in St. Louis and Jacksonville, and two impressive record-breaking performances in Denver and Dallas.
