Now the team has beaten a pair of solid teams and the Raiders. The Chargers already have started their playoff run. They need to beat teams that are in the hunt for the playoffs.

Any win down the stretch will boost the chances for that spot in the playoffs.
After 3 straight wins, this team is showing heart. The team is finding ways to pull out magic. Phillip Rivers led this team to the comeback win. The offensive line is beat up. The defense is grinding through games, but the team is finding ways to win.
