Through Week 16 of the 2008 season, the Chargers are not in the playoffs. However, should they defeat the Denver Broncos in the last game of the season played December 28 they will make the playoffs as the AFC West Division champion. If they lose or tie, the Broncos will make the playoffs as the AFC West Division champion.
Yes - The Super Bowl is ALWAYS - the top AFC team that makes it through the playoffs without a defeat and the top NFC team that does the same!!! It is the last game of the year (in 2010) and is always between an AFC team and an NFC team - as these were once completely different leagues!!!!
There are two groups of football teams: AFC and NFC. The teams with the most wins in the AFC go against each other in the Playoffs for the title of AFC Champions. The teams with the most wins in the NFC go against each other in the Playoffs for the title of NFC Champions. The AFC Champion team and the NFC Champion team are the teams in the Super Bowl.

The top teams in each of the eight divisions will automatically make the playoffs. Then there are two wildcard teams that make the playoffs from each conference (NFC & AFC). These two wildcard teams in each conference make the playoffs based off of who has the best record other than the four that have already won their division. If two teams have the same record, then they look at the head to head games, and then their point differential. Recap: 8 teams who win their conferences, 4 in each conference (NFC, AFC), automatically make it (AFC West, AFC East, AFC North, AFC South, NFC West, NFC East, NFC North, NFC South) 4 teams, 2 in each conference (NFC, AFC), who have the best records other than the teams in the conference who have already won their division.
Prior to the 2008 Philadelphia Eagles who won a wild card spot with a 9-6-1 regular season record, that was the 2002 Pittsburgh Steelers who won the AFC North division with a 10-5-1 record.
