Your daily dose of San Diego Chargers news & notes from around the web.

Chargers halfway to playoff berth - Michael Gehlken (paywall)
"You'd like to say, 'Keep your head down,' and you're not looking," outside linebacker Jarret Johnson said of the stadium scoreboard. "But it's only natural — they're flashing the scores all the time. We're looking up there. You're really only looking for two games. Today was a big day for us.

Chargers peaking, but is it too late? - Eric Williams
"So whatever those teams do, we want to be 9-7. And if that’s our last game, that’s our last game. We can say we won four of the last five, won four in a row and finished the way teams with character finish. If we get a bonus game the next week we’ll be fired up about it."

Melvin Ingram notches first sack of 2013 - Eric Williams
"He went by our tackles a couple times the first week, and we were thinking, ‘How long has this guy been out?’" San Diego coach Mike McCoy said about Ingram. "So the kid’s got a lot of confidence. And the sack-fumble today was big, that he got after the quarterback and hit him. Unfortunately we didn’t get it. But that was a big play for him, and we’ve just got to keep going."

Chargers Defense Took Care of Business - Nick Toney
McGloin said the Bolts blanketed his targets downfield, though. And even when players like Rod Streater and Andre Holmes separated downfield, the Bolts defense stuck with its marks.

Weddle's Top Notch Pick Lifts Bolts - Ricky Henne
Wright also noted how it couldn’t have come at a better time for the Chargers. The play followed a Rivers interception and led directly to a touchdown. "Again, complementary football," he said. "It’s just about having our offenses back. When plays like that happen you have to respond, and that’s what we did. We got the ball back right where they left off, and it was big that we were able to do that as a defense."
