Chargers' charmed life continues

Yes the San Diego Chargers are still coached by Marty Schottenheimer, which should automatically eliminate them from any Super Bowl talk.

But, as the NFL season progresses, San Diego has emerged as the league' s most balanced -- and most resilient -- team.

Sunday was just another example. LaDainian Tomlinson's touchdown binge ended as he was kept out of the end zone. Quarterback Phillip Rivers misfired on 22 of his first 28 passes.

So what happens after Seattle takes a 17-13 lead? Rivers connects on a 39-yard touchdown pass to win the game and clinch a bye for the Chargers.

In a year of mostly mediocre teams, wins like Sunday's are why the Chargers keep looking more and more Super.
