ARLINGTON, Texas -- The Chargers lead the Cowboys, 10-3:
San Diego quarterback Philip Rivers survived a rare mistake when Dallas couldn’t capitalize on an interception at the Chargers’ 27 late in the first half. Dallas missed a field goal.
The Cowboys are running the ball on the Chargers and their battered defensive line. But the Chargers came up huge in the second quarter with a goal-line stand.
Rivers is targeting No. 2 receiver Malcolm Floyd often. He has two catches for 31 yards, but he was the intended receiver on a big pass interference play on San Diego's touchdown drive.
San Diego tight end Antonio Gates has one catch for 7 yards after catching 15 passes for 285 yards in the past two games.
If the Chargers win, they will be in great shape. Both Denver and Cincinnati lost, so the Chargers will be in line for the No. 2 seed in the playoffs.
