Column: Kroenke’s Rams need Spanos’ Chargers to help them against Vikings

It’s a nervous time for the Los Angeles Rams, who would like to qualify for a third consecutive Super Bowl tournament, in part to help owner Stan Kroenke sell tickets and sponsorships to a $5-billion stadium development plagued by cost overruns.

The Rams (8-5) can’t reach the playoffs, though, unless another team helps them.

Here’s where it gets more interesting: It’s the Chargers franchise of Dean Spanos that can help Kroenke and Co, by beating the Minnesota Vikings (9-4) on Sunday in Carson.

In other words, Kroenke will be sweating out a Chargers game, much as hundreds of thousands of San Diegans sweated out Bolts games over the years.
