Due to the wildfires raging in California the Sand Diego Chargers game against the Houston Texans has become questionable.

San Diego Chargers game questionable due to California wildfires The San Diego Chargers were scheduled to play the Houston Texans at the Qualcomm Stadium on Sunday, but due to the wildfires raging in California, there is a chance that the game will be postponed. Currently the Qualcomm Stadium is being used as a refugee center for victims of the fires and will not be available to the team. NFL is currently discussing how to approach the dilemma with a few choices in front of the league - the Chargers could play the game in Los Angeles, in Arizona, at Texas Stadium in Dallas or Reliant Stadium, home turf of the Houston Texans.

 Tomorrow the team is flying to Arizona to practice at the Arizona Cardinals' suburban headquarters. Many players also had to be evacuated as their homes were on the path of the deadly firers raging for days now. This is not the first time the Chargers had to move a game due to wildfires, the same thing happened four years ago, that game was played in Tempe, Arizona.

 Meanwhile Mountain West Conference commissioner Craig Thompson has cancelled the college football game between the BYU Cougars and the San Diego State Aztecs. That game was initially scheduled for Saturday at the Qualcomm Stadium. The game has been re-scheduled for December 1st. "There is a far greater priority than sporting events in the San Diego area at this time," said commissioner Thompson.
