    No one gave the San Diego Chargers a chance, but the Chargers kept their playoff hopes alive by handing the Indianapolis Colts their 1st loss of the season winning 26-17.

    Shawne Merriman led a Chargers defense that put pressure on Peyton Manning all game. Merriman finished with 2 sacks in the game and the Chargers defense overall had 4 sacks. The secondary also came to play and had their best game of the year. Quentin Jammer and Drayton Florence both had interceptions in the game.

    Drew Brees had 1 TD and 3 turnovers and LT left the game late in the 4th. But Michael Turner did a fantastic job filling in rushing for 114 yards with 1 TD on only 8 carrys. His big 83 yard TD run clinched the game for the Bolts.

    The Chargers at 9-5 will need to win their remaining 2 games and get help to gain a playoff berth.
