San Diego Chargers
The San Diego Chargers finally are playing well.
The way Tim Tebow and the Denver Broncos are playing, though, it could be too late.
Philip Rivers threw three touchdown passes, two to Antonio Gates, and the Chargers kept their slim playoff hopes alive while beating Buffalo 37-10 Sunday to eliminate the Bills from postseason contention.
The Chargers (6-7) have won two straight following their six-game losing streak. Minutes after the Chargers game ended, Denver beat Chicago in overtime to improve to 8-5 atop the AFC West with three games to go. Also ahead of the Chargers are the Oakland Raiders (7-6), who lost at Green Bay.
''Until they say we're done, there's always a chance,'' said safety Eric Weddle, who converted a first down on a fake punt and had an interception, both of which led to touchdowns. ''Even if we were done, we'd be playing our hearts out.''
Chargers coach Norv Turner hadn't heard the Denver score until it was brou...
BEST OF MAXIM
He’s got folk hero status across the country.
He’s winning when everybody was betting against him.
He’s won over fans outside of football.
Could Tim Tebow one day win elections like he’s winning football games now? It’s clearly way too soon to predict, before you scoff at the notion of an athlete leveraging success on the field or court to success in politics, remember...
Ladies and gentlemen, you may not have realized this, but until today, Tim Tebow’s stranglehold on the media and pop culture wasn’t quite complete. But now with the “Tim Tebow in 10 Hot Shots” “photo special” treatment from People, the Denver Broncos quarterback has finally arrived. The star treatment usually reserved for Hollywood hunks like [...]
Tim Tebow led two fourth quarter scoring drives and Denver’s Michael Prater kicked two 50 yard plus field goals, including a 51- yard game-winner in overtime, to lift the Broncos past the Chicago Bears 13-10 Sunday afternoon at Stadium Authority Field at Mile High. The Broncos won their sixth straight game to improve to 8-5. The Bears dropped their third [...]
There's a lot of excitement in Denver and in the Carolinas because of their young quarterbacks, Tim Tebow and Cam Newton. They are phenoms, Tebow compiling a 6-1 record and dragging the Broncos back in the playoff race, and Newton rushing for more touchdowns than any quarterback in the history of the game in one season (13).
Chicago Bears linebacker Brian Urlacher called Tim Tebow a good "running back" after losing to the Denver Broncos on Sunday.
DENVER (AP) — Tim Tebow led the Denver Broncos to another comeback victory, with for former UCF kicker Matt Prater's 51-yard field goal with 8:34 left in overtime giving the Denver Broncos a 13-10 win over the Chicago Bears on Sunday.
Tim Tebow did it again. With some help from two big Marion Barber gaffes, Tebow and the Broncos kept rolling. That was far from the only big talking point in Week 14, writes Peter King.

The San Diego Chargers kept their faint playoff hopes alive while snuffing out what little chance the Buffalo Bills had of reaching the postseason. Philip Rivers threw three touchdown passes, two to Antonio Gates, and the Chargers beat the Bills 37-10 Sunday. The Chargers (6-7) have won two straight following their six-game losing streak.
Power rankings. You hate them. They’re so arbitrary and pointless, especially when they include all 32 NFL teams. All you want to know after a good week of NFL action is who the bestest team in the NFL right now, and which one is the absolute barrel-scraping worst. That’s why we have TOP AND BOTTOM OF THE NFL, where we go to great lengths to tell you who’s the top dog in...
