The San Diego Chargers want the Jets to beat the Colts on Saturday.

Ten months ago, the Chargers sent cornerback Antonio Cromartie to the Jets in exchange for a conditional 2011 draft pick. And Rich Cimini reports that one of the conditions of that trade is that if the Jets advance to the divisional playoff round, the Chargers get the Jets’ second-round pick. If the Jets lose, the Chargers get the Jets’ third-round pick.

In other words, if the Jets lose, the Chargers get a pick somewhere between No. 85 overall and No. 88 overall. If the Jets win, the Chargers get a pick somewhere between No. 57 overall and No. 64 overall.

So if you’re a Chargers fan, root for the Jets.
