Antonio Gates shines as Chargers handle Jets, keep playoff hopes alive

The holidays are a time of giving and receiving and for New York Jets safety Jamal Adams and a young fan, that was the case Sunday afternoon.

The Chargers seem like they should be able to take care of business today, but Los Angeles is known for letdown performances as well.

Chargers wide receiver Keenan Allen earned his first career interception Sunday againt the Jets.

With nothing to lose, the Jets started the game with some trickery. Jets running back Bilal Powell finished with 145 rushing yards on 19 carries, including a 57-yard run for a score. I see the Chargers struggling today out East and this game coming down to the wire.

In need of a jump start on offense with second-year pro Hunter Henry done for the year, the Los Angeles Chargers turned to veteran tight end Antonio Gates, and he delivered.

Can the Los Angeles Chargers go on the road and cruise to a comfortable win over the New York Jets when the two meet today at 1PM ET?

And, one week after a dispiriting loss at Arrowhead Stadium, the Chargers (8-7) at least did their part.

Fantasy fallout: Philip Rivers completed 22 of 40 for 290 passing yards, a touchdown to Gates and no interceptions.

It ended up in the hands of Keenan Allen. The Chargers have failed to cover in two of their last three. Adams gave the young boy his player edition Air Jordan XIII cleats to take home with him.

The Chargers responded quickly, eating up five minutes with an eight-play, 80-yard scoring drive.

What I liked: Melvin Gordon totaled 81 yards on 19 carries, eclipsing the 1,000-yard mark for the first time in his three-year National Football League career.

With four minutes left in the game, Chargers defensive end Joey Bosa was flagged for roughing the passer - pushing the Jets (5-10) into the red zone.
