Refocused: Los Angeles Chargers 14, New York Jets 7 - PFF Analysis Team
Toomer only played 25 snaps against the Jets but he absolutely maximized his impact in that limited playing time. His five stops tied a season high but one stop in particular midway through the second quarter proved a crucial moment in such a tight game. He came free in the backfield thanks to Melvin Ingram’s disruption up front and he stripped the ball away from Matt Forte just as the Jets were knocking on the door of the red zone. In a one-score game, that red-zone turnover ultimately could’ve been the difference as the Chargers sought to keep their playoff hopes alive.

"Our goal all along was to have a chance to play meaningful football in December, and we have a chance to do that," Chargers head coach Anthony Lynn said. "So I take my hat off to the coaching staff and the players. They all hung in there and put up with me. And we've got a lot to play for next week."

Melvin Gordon, Keenan Allen emerge as 'one-two punch' for Chargers - Eric Williams
“It just shows that we’re effective running the ball as a unit,” Gordon said. “It might get shaky, but you can find a way to get through it. It’s just a great accomplishment to the guys around me. It’s a milestone, I think, as a runner. Every running back wants one.”

Report: Chargers likely to lose DC Gus Bradley after 2017 - Carlos Sanchez
Bradley got a 1-year deal because the Jaguars were paying his salary this year. With one year to rebuild his reputation, the Chargers should hesitate to re-sign him to a long-term deal, he is one of the main reason they still have a chance to make it to the playoffs.

3 takeaways from Chargers’ 14-7 win vs. Jets - Will Reeve Jr
Perhaps it was the holiday season and players being away from their families that contributed to the lack of effort, precision and execution. Fans were forced to witness a win that left many feeling almost as beat up as a loss.

Moreover, Rivers passed for more than 4,000 yards this season, marking the eighth time of his career he has done so. Only former Colts and Broncos quarterback Payton Manning (14) and Saints quarterback Drew Bress (9) have more for their careers and the eight such seasons ties Rivers with Patriots QB Tom Brady.
