With another fourth quarter loss, this time to the Cincinnati Bengals, the Chargers have ensured they won't have a winning season. The Chargers won't make the playoffs for a third year in a row for the first time since 2000-2003 and with one more loss will have their first losing season since 2003. Ray 7 Loren will look at what happened (though it'll be very similar to the last few losses), will put the end to the Chargers' playoffs hopes into context, and discuss the latest group of injuries. And for the Chargers absolute last hope, they travel to a place that has always been a house of horror for the Chargers...Pittsburgh to face the injured but dangerous Steelers.
In a year where the Chargers have lost in so many creative ways, last week's loss versus the Ravens might just take the cake.

What.....a......debacle! After leading 24-0 at halftime and a dominant half of football, the Chargers have one of the worst chokes in the history of this organization losing 35-24.
