The perceived easy part of the San Diego Charges' schedule is over.

They close with five games against teams with winning records.

The Chargers (7-4) have won just one game against a team with a winning record, a Week 2 upset against defending Super Bowl champion Seattle.

The Chargers beat the Rams 27-24 Sunday after safety Marcus Gilchrist intercepted Shaun Hill at the goal line with 56 seconds left.

It was San Diego's third takeaway. But the Chargers also had three turnovers, including a 99-yard interception return for a touchdown by Janoris Jenkins.

Says coach Mike McCoy: "Week in, week out, you turn the ball over and odds of losing go up higher."

San Diego visits Baltimore Sunday. The Ravens were 6-4 going into Monday night's game at New Orleans.
