The San Diego Chargers were one of the most disappointing teams in the NFL last year, but through the first-half of this year, many viewed them as the surprise team of the 2013 NFL season. At 4-3 and heading into their by week, San Diego looked like a team destined to earn a playoff berth in the AFC, which features a bevy of 5-6 teams tied for the final Wild Card playoff spot.

But a three-game losing-streak had the Chargers fighting for their playoff lives on Sunday when they headed to Arrowhead Stadium to face the 9-1 Kansas City Chiefs, who hadn’t lost at home this year.

Though he is a rookie, Chargers receiver Keenan Allen is becoming a leader for this team, and he still believes his team can go on a run:

Being on a three game losing streak is tough, but me personally, I’m always going to come out and try to get better.  I’ll never be satisfied, and I think that’s the mindset of the team as well.  We’re going to keep on trying to build our bond and come through this losing streak.  We still believe in ourselves, so we’re going to come out, play our best and hopefully we can go on a run.
