The San Diego Chargers seem to own the Colts as of late, winning their last four games—two playoff games and two regular season games. The Chargers had to go through overtime to beat Indianapolis this time.

Backup running back Darren Sproles had a 22-yard, game-winning touchdown run to win the game 23-17.

Sproles also had 328 all-purpose yards, including 105 rushing yards and two rushing touchdowns. Philip Rivers has 217 yards passing with an interception, and Antonio Gates had eight receptions for 87 yards.

Peyton Manning really held Indianapolis together, throwing for 310 yards and a touchdown pass to Reggie Wayne, who had four receptions for 129 yards.

Joseph Addai had 16 carries for 41 yards, and a touchdown in the loss.

The Chargers, with the win, face the Steelers in the divisional round of the playoffs.
