Los Angeles Chargers hold off Baltimore Ravens to progress in National Football League play-offs

While New England got the win in both games, Brady and Co. needed a Chargers fumble and a Rivers injury to help them advance each time and they'll certainly need Brady to be better to advance to a eighth straight AFC Championship Game. The Chargers had deciphered the Ravens' unorthodox offense the second time around. "Joe can still play; I think we saw that in the first half of this season".

A lot of people have had trouble adjusting to the phrase "Los Angeles Chargers" because the team spent so much time in San Diego. Running back Melvin Gordon was largely bottled up by the Ravens defense, but his one-yard touchdown run on fourth-and-goal on the second play of the fourth quarter proved to be the winning score. It's expected that Baltimore will trade or release Flacco this offseason. The Ravens never crossed midfield in the first two quarters and were forced to punt the ball four times in addition to Jackson's interception and a fumble by Kenneth Dixon. "I did, not my team".

"Joe Flacco is going to play really well in this league", Harbaugh said.

"No, no, you can't even go there, man", said Flacco, who has handled his benching with class. And Harbaugh was redeemed - or maybe bailed out - by Jackson's play down the stretch. For a while, with agitated fans booing the decision, it looked as if he had sacrificed these playoffs for Jackson's well-being.

That's a classy answer from Flacco, who also acknowledged after the game that he doesn't have much say in where he'll end up next season, with the Ravens ready to move on from him and make Jackson their franchise quarterback.
