Chargers didn't look very playoff-worthy - Tom Silverstein
A couple of things to remember: They were playing without G Kris Dielman (concussion), the heart and soul of their offense line, LB Shaun Phillips (foot), their top pass rusher, NT Luis Castillo (broken leg) and RB Mike Tolbert (hamstring). The Chargers have been banged up all season long and it has affected their performance.
Chargers-K.C.: Quarter-by-quarter recap - Jay Posner
The Chargers had first crack in OT but a sack forced a punt, and the Chiefs used a 17-yard pass to Steve Breaston on third-and-14 to move into field goal range. Ryan Succop booted a 30-yarder with 5:16 left to win it.

First off, Chargers fans who prefer football in San Diego instead of Los Angeles can breathe easy. For now.
Rapid Reaction: Chiefs 23, Chargers 20 (OT) - Bill Williamson
The fumbled snap by San Diego quarterback Philip Rivers at the Chiefs’ 15-yard line with 48 seconds to go will go down in Monday Night Football history. Rivers and Chargers coach Norv Turner will forever be criticized for the play. People will always wonder why Turner didn’t have Rivers kneel down twice and attempt a short game-winning field goal in the final seconds. Rivers will always be haunted for muffing the snap. Rivers has been struggling this season and he played very well from the second-fourth quarter until the fumbled snap. This one could stick with him for a while. This play may have long ramifications in San Diego.
Chargers fumble away game to Chiefs - Chris Jenkins
Adamant denials notwithstanding, something’s wrong with Philip Rivers. And something’s very, very wrong with the Chargers.
