    3. OK, so they got away with one against the Raiders. They were flat after playing back-to-back tough road games -- and winning both.

    Fox Sports
    1. The ‘Bolts relied on some “trickeration” (the Microsoft Word red squiggly line says this, in fact, is NOT a real world, but I beg to differ) to knock off Oakland on Sunday. A 19-yard LaDainian Tomlinson pass to Antonio Gates tied the game at 14 with a little over 9 minutes remaining. The NFL’s sure-to-be MVP then rushed in a 10-yard go-ahead scamper after a 44-yard dash on first down to give San Diego the lead. The Chargers never looked back. With 24 touchdowns on the season, L.T. is only 5 away from Shaun Alexander’s single-season record set last year. What’d quarterback Philip Rivers think of his tailback’s pass to Gates? “Shoot, if I ain't throwing it good, let him.” Whatever works. And putting it in No. 21’s hands? Well, that seems to work just fine.

    2. Vincent Jackson should be thanking someone. Maybe the refs technically got the call right on Jackson's non-fumble, but anyone who watched the play knows it was a fumble.

    [​IMG] 1. Chargers (9-2) – Going 4-0 without linebacker Shawne Merriman, who was serving a suspension, is quite impressive, but this week's tilt at Buffalo is a classic trap game. The arrest of reserve cornerback Cletis Gordon is the latest embarrassing off-field incident this season. Don't be surprised if there is a character cleansing this offseason

    I dont get it. We beat the raiders and we get bashed for winning. This proves that the media doesnt respect the charger team. How the hell are the colts going to lose to the cowboys, then come back and beat a sorry *** bears team and get the number 1 rank? I dont care about all this ranking stuff, it doesnt win championships, but to knock us for playing our hearts out, especially with a depleted defense shows no respect. Just wait when we win this bowl game, we will see what they say then!

    Here is another Power Ranking:

    Covers.com: 2. San Diego - Make it five straight wins for the Chargers; however this week they're asked to travel to chilly Buffalo and face the Bills in a contest that's sandwiched between two divisional tilts. Buyer beware!

    Actually Fox Sports is wrong here. LT is 4 away from Shaun Alexander's single season TD record set last year. He's 5 away from surpasing Shaun Alexander's record.
