A Happy Birthday for Philip Rivers - Nick Toney
Rivers laughed about making the improbable throw, but that's what he's made a career out of doing. He saved some of his best work for his birthday -- and stuck around Qualcomm Stadium after to blow out the candles with his kids on the field.

Chargers Thankful for Home Crowd Contributing to Win - Ricky Henne
Philip Rivers acknowledged that they haven’t been as good as they’d hoped at home, going 3-3 on the season. But has noted that in the games the Bolts have won, the crowd played a big role. Giving them reason to cheer like they did today, as well as against the Dallas Cowboys and Indianapolis Colts makes wins like this all the more rewarding.

Mathews, Woodhead a Formidable Duo - Nick Toney
There was no stopping the Bolts rushing attack -- both all afternoon, and on the drive. McCoy went right back to the run with Mathews on three more grinding rushes. He was stopped on the goal line twice and knocked through the door on the third.

Game Highlights: Chargers vs. Giants -
The Chargers click on all cylinders to take down the Giants in Week 14 by a score of 37-14.

Eli Manning jeered, Chargers roll - Eric Williams
While the fans did not affect Manning's play, San Diego's re-energized defense did. In the Chargers most complete win of the season, they forced three turnovers, leading to 14 points. The Chargers held the Giants to 92 total rushing yards, while San Diego scored on seven of the team's nine drives and totaled nearly 400 yards of offense.

Melvin Ingram's return energizes Chargers - Eric Williams
"We could have waited, but where he was -- the medical staff did an outstanding job with him," McCoy said. "And give Melvin a lot of credit for the way he’s worked. From the very first 30 seconds after he went down he said, ‘Don’t worry coach, I’ll be back. I’ll play next year.’ So give him and the medical staff all the credit in the world for the way they’ve worked."
