Chargers Lost Key Starters To Injury After Brandon Staley Decided To Play Starters In Meaningless Game

And unfortunately for the Chargers, that questionable decision backfired as the Chargers lost a couple of big names to injury.

The Chargers will travel to Jacksonville to face the Jaguars in the Wild Card round.
