Bring on the boos. Cue the catcalls. Even the chants of "Mar-ty! Mar-ty!" are fair game. The San Diego Chargers welcome them all. That's because they aren't playing at home today but at Arrowhead Stadium, where Kansas City fans are even more frustrated with their Chiefs (4-7) than San Diegans are with their Chargers (6-5).

SAN DIEGO -- Shawne Merriman was feeling so good Sunday, so invigorated that his San Diego Chargers finally lived up to expectations, that he reached up and did something that might sound superhuman -- even for an All-Pro linebacker. He snatched an airplane out of the sky. It was a paper airplane, actually, one that drifted lazily down from the upper deck at Qualcomm Stadium and nearly made it to the field. There, the Chargers' offense was mopping up in a 32-14 victory over the Baltimore Ravens.

SAN DIEGO -- The San Diego Chargers and Baltimore Ravens are in the same boat. And it's taking on water. One season after they were among the best teams in the NFL, the Chargers (5-5) and Ravens (4-6) are in danger of drifting into irrelevant seas. They play today at Qualcomm Stadium, and the loser could have a difficult time reaching the playoffs. San Diego had an NFL-best record of 14-2 last season, and Baltimore was 13-3.

SAN DIEGO -- The rain had stopped, so the weather was good. The setup was perfect. The 67,726 fans at Qualcomm Stadium, stoked to a frenzy by the San Diego Chargers' stunning 23-point first half Sunday but descending an emotional slope after the Indianapolis Colts threatened to snatch the victory from them, were almost expecting the worst.

SAN DIEGO -- The San Diego Chargers have every reason to sweat. They're 4-4, already having lost twice as many games as they did all last season, and now they're missing Pro Bowl defensive tackle Luis Castillo. On top of that, the Indianapolis Colts are in town tonight, and the defending Super Bowl champions have the extra incentive of bouncing back from a rare defeat. The fear that haunted countless Chargers fans -- Coach Norv Turner wasn't the right man for the job -- seems to be coming true.

SAN DIEGO -- The burning smell was back, that acrid tang that pierces your lungs and inflames your eyes. It had fouled the air when the wildfires began but had become a mild companion during the southward drive on I-5 Sunday, diminished through the efforts of firefighters who had tamed infernos all week. Its renewed strength near Qualcomm Stadium before the Chargers faced the Houston Texans was alarming, but there turned out to be no need to panic.

SAN DIEGO -- As the final fire refugees boarded buses for the short ride to a Red Cross shelter early Friday morning, a small army of workers hustled to restore a sense of normalcy to Qualcomm Stadium, home of the San Diego Chargers. For much of this week, Qualcomm was temporary home to as many as 13,000 people displaced by wildfires in San Diego County.

San Diego Mayor Jerry Sanders will decide today whether the San Diego Chargers can play their scheduled Sunday home game against the Houston Texans at Qualcomm Stadium, which is a wildfire evacuation site. Among the options is playing the game at Qualcomm on Monday, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell said. "If San Diego says it would put less pressure on their public safety, we would move it to Monday," Goodell said at league meetings in Philadelphia.

The San Diego Chargers will uproot their practices to Arizona starting Wednesday as the wildfires ravaging Southern California forced about 40 of the team's players, coaches and personnel, including star running back LaDainian Tomlinson, to evacuate their homes. Citing the "poor air quality created by local wildfires," a Chargers spokesman said the team would use the Arizona Cardinals' practice facility in Tempe, Ariz.
