Use of timeouts an issue for Turner, Sunday and beyond - Kevin Acee
Norv Turner, whose clock management is among the aspects being assessed by his superiors, had a couple more instances to be scrutinized Sunday.

Ship is going down with no life preservers in sight - Nick Canepa
They had their moments Sunday in the wind and cold but playable Soldier Field. Just not enough of them. The football team that has built a losing season on mistake after mistake once again couldn’t wrap a tourniquet around the errors of its ways.

Backups offer solid protection for Rivers - Jay Paris
Three opening-day offensive line starters were on the shelf, so what do you figure Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers' life would be like Sunday? Just fine, thank you.

Third-quarter flurry drops Chargers - Christopher Smith
San Diego (4-6) erased a halftime deficit on its opening drive but Chicago (7-3) countered with two touchdowns in 54 seconds, creating separation the Chargers never overcame.

Wrap-up: Bears 31, Chargers 20 - Bill Williamson
Credit the makeshift San Diego offensive line. Playing without three injured starters, the line did not give up any sacks Sunday. The Chargers will have to keep it up on the fly. The San Diego Union Tribune reports that left tackle Marcus McNeill may miss the rest of the season with a neck stinger.

Raiders, Broncos surge, Chargers flail - Bill Williamson
The Oakland Raiders and Denver Broncos showed they will remain relevant for the stretch run. The San Diego Chargers? Well, the team that was widely expected to win the division is fading fast.

Jay Cutler injury affects AFC West - Bill Williamson
Denver has been anticipating the Dec. 11 game because would be Cutler's first visit to Denver in the regular season since he was traded to the Bears in 2009. Regardless of that drama, if Bears are without Cutler during the next three weeks, each team’s chances of beating the Bears has increased.
