SAN DIEGO, Calif. (CBS 8) - San Diego fans are already getting charged up for the Bolts' playoff matchup against the high-flying New York Jets this weekend.
The Jets have plenty of fuel after a big win Saturday, but Charger fans are sounding confident the Bolts will win.
The Jets have the best rushing offense in all of football - the chargers defense against the run - ranked 20th. And then there's the Jets' defense, also ranked number one in the NFL.
"They've got a good defense, but they won't beat the Chargers. No way," a fan said.
Chargers fans have every reason to be concerned about this Sunday's playoff game against the Jets, but they're not. Maybe it's because the Chargers are the hottest team in the NFL right now, winning 11 straight. They also score a lot of points using several different weapons. Even Raiders fans know the smart money is on the Bolts.
"Honestly, I believe the Chargers are going to win. I'm rooting for the Jets, but we'll see what happens," a Raiders fan said.
Chargers fans already know what can happen when we just assume we're going to beat the Jets. Our last playoff game against them was five years ago at the Q. Nate Kaeding - then a rookie - missed a game-winning field goal in overtime and the Jets went on to win.
Chargers fans say this time the Jets won't leave San Diego flying high.
"It's a crazy league when you get into the playoffs, but I'm pretty confident we'll come away with a win," a fan said.
