INTANGIBLES

With their annual December surge, the Chargers again look like a formidable team. They are 19-2 in December and January under much-maligned coach Norv Turner. San Diego is also not technically out of the playoff hunt despite a six-game losing streak earlier this season. The Chargers have outscored their previous two opponents by a combined 75-29. But there is plenty on the line for the Ravens, and they are playing their best football of the season. They carry a four-game winning streak out to the West Coast, and a win means that they'd sew up a franchise-best fourth consecutive playoff berth and take one step closer to an AFC North championship and the conference's top seed. The Ravens are 16-14 on the road under coach John Harbaugh, including 3-3 this season. They are also 8-5 under Harbaugh in prime-time games and 4-1 in Sunday night games. Harbaugh's teams are also 7-0 against the AFC West, including a 31-26 victory in San Diego in 2009. EDGE: RAVENS
