From no NFL teams to two impressive playoff bound squads, things are looking good in Los Angeles.
The Los Angeles Chargers are sitting at 9-3, one game behind the Kansas City Chiefs in the AFC West, but they are also in a sizable lead for the Wild Card if they don’t beat out Kansas City for the No. 1 seed.
The Los Angeles Rams at 11-1 clinched the NFC West in their win against the Detroit Lions Sunday, and will likely either take the NFC’s number one seed into the playoffs or the second seed if the one game back New Orleans Saints surpass them.

Colin Cowherd again placed the Chargers as the fifth best team in the league and the Rams as the fourth, saying, “The Rams are better than the Chargers by a little bit ’cause I trust this star-studded team.”
However, Cowherd acknowledged that star-studded teams worry him since he sees some Rams players “freelancing on defense looking for home runs when they should be satisfied with doubles.”

While the Chargers may have less household names, Cowherd believes Philip Rivers should be in the MVP discussion.
“Good lord, 100+ passer rating in 10 of his 12 games this year,” he said about Rivers, “the Chargers have the best receiving core in the league and deepest running back set in the league now too.”
