10. San Diego (4-8)

Remaining opponents' winning percentage: .375 (18-30 combined record)

Best chance to win: After Sunday's game at Pittsburgh, the next three opponents (Carolina, the New York Jets and Oakland) are a combined 11-25.

Outlook: If football games were only three quarters long, the Chargers would be in the mix for the AFC's top playoff seed. Alas, they're not. San Diego's penchant for fourth-quarter collapses continued in last Sunday's 20-13 loss to Cincinnati. Even a winning streak to close the season won't be enough to save the jobs of head coach Norv Turner and general manager A.J. Smith after a third straight year out of the playoffs.

Biggest position of need: Left tackle. Quarterback Philip Rivers hasn't had a quality blind-side protector since Marcus McNeill suffered a career-ending neck injury in 2011 and replacement Jared Gaither failed to stay healthy in 2012. An argument also can be made at wide receiver. It's now obvious Smith made a huge mistake letting Vincent Jackson leave to Tampa Bay in free agency, then compounded the error by trying to replace him with a stiff like Robert Meachem. The ex-New Orleans Saints wideout has 14 catches and barely plays after signing a four-year, $25.9 million contract with $14 million guaranteed last March. - Alex Marvez (AP Photo/Lenny Ignelzi)
