Chargers can no longer be overlooked as Super Bowl contender

LOS ANGELES (AP) The Los Angeles Chargers can no longer be overlooked, whether it is on the list of Super Bowl contenders or as a headline attraction in their own town.

Thursday night's 29-28 come-from-behind victory over the Kansas City Chiefs moved the 11-3 Chargers into a tie atop the AFC West with two games remaining and clinched them their first postseason berth since 2013. The Chiefs hold the tiebreaker due to a better division record, but the Chargers have a viable chance of not only winning the division for the first time since 2009, but also getting home field throughout the playoffs.

"This isn't the same old Chargers," safety Derwin James said after their third comeback win in the past four weeks. "We're here to compete with anybody in this league and we showed it tonight."
