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 brought up in the postgame news conference.
