San Diego Charges Through Colts for Big Playoff Win

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) _ The defending NFL champion Indianapolis
Colts have been eliminated from the playoffs. San Diego, playing
much of the game without stars LaDainian Tomlinson and Phillip
Rivers, beat the Colts in Indianapolis 28-24.
Tomlinson left the game in the second quarter with a bruised
left knee while quarterback Rivers was injured late in the third
quarter.
Before leaving, Rivers had thrown for three touchdowns. His
counterpart, Peyton Manning, passed for three scores as well but
was picked off twice. Tomlinson was replaced by Billy Volek, who
ran for the go-ahead score.
The Chargers advance to next Sunday's AFC Championship game
against the New England Patriots in Foxborough, Massachusetts.
