The San Diego Chargers embarrassed the Baltimore Ravens defense on national television in the 2011 regular season. The 34-14 blowout resembled nothing the Ravens defense did the entire season and was shredded by Chargers QB Philip Rivers in a game that was virtually over by halftime. The Ravens went on to play in the AFC Championship Game while the Chargers didn't even make the playoffs.
Is Baltimore good enough to beat San Diego on the road? They'll have a chance to find out and prove they are as the two teams meet in San Diego in the 2012 regular season, as noted in a story on RantSports.com. The date has not been set but the AFC North will play the AFC West and the Ravens will go there as well as to play the Kansas City Chiefs, and host both the Denver Broncos and Oakland Raiders.
Each year the Chargers are annually predicted to win the AFC West, but always seem to find a way to not win the division. They are loaded with talent and while they will have a bunch of roster changes, River remains and he is the oar that rows that boat and as most Ravens can attest, if he is on, he can be among the most deadly passers in the game.This game will be pointed to as one of the toughest ones on the Ravens schedule when it is finally released and due to the interest this will generate, don't be surprised if it ends up being another prime time game.
