The San Diego Chargers fought hard the entire year and have finally reached the playoffs for the first time in five years.
The franchise and it’s fans have grown frustrated over the last couple of years after reaching the playoffs in 2oo4, 2006-2009. They have fallen short since then but received some much needed help during the final week of the regular season.
Now they’re preparing to take on the winners of the AFC North, the Cincinnati Bengals. A team that’s talented on both sides of the ball, is led by starting quarterback Andy Dalton and star wide receiver A.J. Green.
Running back Ryan Mathews and wide receiver Eddie Royal did not participate during practice today but both men are expected to suit up on Sunday.
Ryan Mathews (ankle) and Eddie Royal (toe) not practicing. Would expect Mathews to be on field Friday, both on Sunday.

The team has been managing Ryan’s reps while Royal has missed a decent amount of practice during the week.
