The San Diego Chargers have a pulse.
With Philip Rivers passing with authority, the Chargers snapped a six-game losing streak - their longest in 10 years - by beating the reeling Jacksonville Jaguars 38-14 on Monday night.
That means the Chargers (5-7) are two games behind Denver and Oakland in the AFC West with four to play. The Broncos (3-2) have a better division record than the Raiders (2-2). The Chargers are 2-3 in one of the NFL's weakest divisions.
In 2008, the Chargers were 4-8 before winning out and benefiting from Denver's collapse to claim the division title.
Getting to the playoffs this year will require nothing short of a miracle. Not only do the Chargers have some tough games left, but the Broncos have taken off behind Tim Tebow, winning five straight games.

What I Liked:
The Chargers looked like the playoff team we remember from years past. Philip Rivers was able to sit in the pocket and find open receivers. The Chargers were also able to run the ball very effectively. Their line opened up gaping holes in the middle of the Jaguars' defense as well as on the outside. Really, the Chargers' offense looked about as sharp as their...
