Chargers force 5 turnovers, still fall 27-20 to Broncos - Pat Graham
The Chargers were handed five turnovers — basically handed the game — and couldn't figure out how to win on Sunday. They fell 27-20 to the Peyton Manning-led Denver Broncos in what could be their last game as the San Diego Chargers. "If that game doesn't summarize our season, I don't know what does," said coach Mike McCoy, whose team finished 4-12 and wound up winless in the AFC West.

"Stevie is always doing extra work," linebacker Manti Te’o said. "While everybody else is getting ready for practice, Stevie is in the weight room getting his work in. On Mondays, when we come in to watch film, he’s in there early. On the field, he’s working on his footwork."

"That was one of the best defensive games I’ve played in," he said. "I just take every play seriously and try to focus on every play.  If you can do that, then you have the best chance to win…(Like) everything else, when you get the momentum like that, things start flowing to you."
