Chargers-Colts: Darren Sproles Is the Man

Bennett KaplanCorrespondent IJanuary 3, 2009

Darren Sproles is the man of the hour. With 328 all purpose yards, two touchdowns, one being a game-winning touchdown run in overtime, Sproles is perhaps the most dangerous player with the ball in his hands in the NFL

The Colts suffered an overtime loss to the San Diego Chargers, and the Chargers continue to write their amazing story. With four games to play in the regular season, the Chargers were 4-8 and with no chance at a winning season, and were counted out as far as the playoffs go.

The rallied off four straight wins and made the playoffs after beating the ailing Broncos on the last game of the season.

Sproles has been key all season for the Chargers and did not disappoint, as he took most of the workload in the backfield due to L.T.'s injured groin. 

Sproles is a free agent next year, but after this performance, the Chargers are going to do everything they can to keep this man in San Diego.
