Chargers stay alive
SAN DIEGO — There was no way the Chargers could not do some serious scoreboard watching.
Buffalo's 19-0 win against Miami was shown on the scoreboard video screen as San Diego warmed up. Updates of New England's 41-7 win against Baltimore were shown during the game.
"I was going to know, somehow," said quarterback Philip Rivers, whose Chargers beat Oakland and got the help they needed to stay alive in the AFC playoff race.
San Diego overcame three turnovers while benefiting from two turnovers and 12 penalties for 73 yards by the Raiders.
