Games against 2009 playoff teams: 4
Slow starters the last few seasons, the Chargers should get out of the gate quickly, thanks to a soft first six weeks. In all, San Diego faces just four playoff teams, including the Kurt Warner--less Cardinals in Week 4 and a Patriots team that struggled on the road in '09. Late trips to Indianapolis and Cincinnati could be dicey, but the road back to the playoffs seems smooth.
