Titans-Chargers: Christmas Night Football Thread

Th_chargers_icon_medium vs. Th_titans_icon_medium

Hopefully everybody had a great Christmas day and got a few good presents to enjoy in the coming year.  Now that we're into Christmas afternoon/evening, it's time to get back to football.  Tonight we get the Chargers and the Titans.  A Chargers win clinches a first round bye (although they also clinch with New England and Cincinnati losses).  Tennessee is tied with five other teams one game back of Baltimore and Denver for a wildcard spot.  Needless to say, the Titans desperately need a win.

This should make for an especially interesting battle with the Titans 5-2 at home and the Chargers 6-1 on the road.  Here's another one that blows my mind.  Philip Rivers took over as starter for the Chargers in 2006.  While I've always found Rivers to be a whiny, petulant little child, I won't deny his work in December, combined with the work of the rest of his team.  Since Rivers took over as starter in 2006, the Chargers are 17-0 in December.  That's right, no losses in December.  Rivers December numbers during that time: 299/497, 3,921 yards, 31/11 TD/INT, 96.7 QB rating.

The Titans opened as a 3 point favorite, but the line has dropped a point to 2.  Given those crazy numbers for the Chargers in December, is it worth throwing a few bucks on the Chargers tonight?  I know the previous seasons are independent performances, but it's still something worth considering.
