It was a hard fought defensive battle all the way through but the Bengals came out victorious.
Cincinnati stays alive in its efforts to get back to the postseason in consecutive years.

With the team unable to finish above .500 this season, it could mark the end of the Norv Turner era in San Diego. The Chargers are a talented team, but seem to underachieve on a consistent basis. It will be interesting to see how it all shapes up toward the end of the season for the Bolts.
