Chargers 23, Colts 17

Darren Sproles, the little guy (5'6"), that most definitely can do it all... led the Chargers to an overtime victory over the Colts, but they would not have won the game without the innovative/aggressive play of their Defense, the booming kicks of their punter Mike Scifres, the laser-like accuracy of kicker Nate Kaeding, the blocking of the Offensive Line that sprung Sproles, and, of course, Phillip River's leadership/passion. Antonio Gates and LaDamian Tomlinson both played with injuries. Gates responded with a fierce drive that was simply amazing and Tomlinson scored a touchdown while playing with a torn tendon in his groin!!! Coach Norv Turner has hopefully put to rest his critics and we are excited to see how far they can go. A true team victory!!!

Wow, go Sproles! That was a good game to watch. I cannot believe he made it through with the top 3 total yards in playoff history! I wish I was there to get pictures
