    SAN DIEGO ---- They're not pulling rabbits from hats. No one was sawed in half.

    But something supernatural might be percolating in Mission Valley.

    "It seems like it is magical,'' Chargers running back LaDainian Tomlinson said, "the way things are happening for us.''

    The Chargers were up to their tricks Sunday before 66,105 at Qualcomm Stadium.

    Their old fall-behind-come-storming-back-act thrilled the patrons and delivered a 21-14 victory over the Oakland Raiders.

    "I might have a heart attack here pretty soon,'' Tomlinson said.

    Do that and Charger Nation will clutch its chest. But for the third straight week the Chargers (9-2) showed heart, yanking not a rabbit, but a triumph from seemingly thin air.

    On this day, Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers looked every bit like a first-year starter. Their high-powered offense was coughing and wheezing like an old jalopy with just three first-half first downs. The defense couldn't impose its will on the Raiders, who looked more 8-2 than 2-8.

    But the Chargers stayed the course and, of course, stayed with Tomlinson. He responded by rushing for two touchdowns and throwing for another as the Chargers' AFC West cushion ballooned to two games over the Broncos and Chiefs.

    "This was just another day at the office,'' Chargers coach Marty Schottenheimer said with a smile.
