The San Diego Chargers and Washington Redskins find themselves in very different positions despite both sitting at third in their respective divisions. San Diego enters Sunday's game with a 4-3 record, but will need to play for a Wild Card as it fights the Kansas City Chiefs and Denver Broncos in the AFC West, while Washington is unlikely to be in Wild Card contention but could still win the NFC East due to the division's struggles.

More on the matchup: These teams faced each other three years ago, and it's been almost a decade since the Chargers traveled east to face Washington. The last game between the sides became a battle of the backups, as quarterback Billy Volek threw the game-winning touchdown to running back Mike Tolbert to lead the Chargers to a 23-20 win. San Diego's offense is very different now, with Philip Rivers playing some of his best football despite injuries to the Chargers receiving corps. Robert Griffin III has a difficult test where he might be asked to keep the inconsistent Washington offense in step with the revitalized Chargers.
