Chargers WR Malcom Floyd scores key TD in Week 16 win
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Chargers wide receiver Malcom Floyd caught just four of his season-high 10 targets for 50 yards Saturday but also scored a crucial touchdown in his team's 38-35 overtime win over the 49ers in Week 16.

Floyd hadn't been on the same page as quarterback Philip Rivers for much of the night but came through when it mattered, hauling in the game-tying touchdown on an 11-yard post play with just 29 seconds left in regulation. He's up to 49 receptions, 827 yards and six touchdowns going into a Week 17 matchup with the Chiefs.

Chargers WR Dontrelle Inman catches seven passes Week 16
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Chargers wide receiver Dontrelle Inman racked up seven receptions on nine targets for 79 yards in his team's 38-35 overtime win over the 49ers in Week 16.

The coaches opened the second half with Inman in the lineup and the team down 28-7, and the little-used receiver was able to reward the gamble with an excellent half of football, picking up all his receptions in the second half. It was the first time this season Inman had even seen a target in a game, but he was able to pick up three first downs, including one on a crucial fourth-and-10 with less than a minute left in the fourth quarter and his team down seven points. The Chargers tied the game two plays later before winning in overtime.

Inman may have earned himself a significant role in his team's Week 17 matchup with the Chiefs, especially if Keenan Allen is unable to return to action.

Chargers TE Antonio Gates scores twice in Week 16 win
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Chargers tight end Antonio Gates caught seven of his nine targets for 92 yards with two touchdowns in his team's 38-35 overtime win over the 49ers in Week 16.

Gates had a quiet first half but helped lead the charge to come back from a three-touchdown deficit. His first score was on a one-yard catch on third-and-goal that he juggled a bit, but he was able to hang on while taking a hit at the goal line. His second score was on a wide-open 21-yard reception in the fourth quarter to bring his team to within one touchdown.

It was the fourth multiscore game of the season for Gates, who is now up to 65 receptions, 754 yards and 12 touchdowns on the season. He'll match up with the Chiefs in Week 17.

Chargers WR Eddie Royal catches 10 passes in Week 16 win
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Chargers wide receiver Eddie Royal led his team with a season-high 10 receptions on 12 targets for 94 yards and one touchdown in his team's 38-35 overtime win over the 49ers Saturday.

Royal's touchdown came on a ball floated over the defender near the goal line for the team's only first-half score. They were able to rally back from a 28-7 halftime deficit thanks in large part to the work done by the slot receiver, who made two key fourth-down conversions in the second half.

The big performance gives Royal 58 receptions, 683 yards and seven touchdowns heading into a Week 17 showdown with the Chiefs.

Branden Oliver heads Chargers rushing attack in Week 16 win
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Chargers running back Branden Oliver lead the running-back committee Saturday, racking up 53 yards on 13 carries and adding three receptions for 28 yards.

Oliver showed plenty of burst while continually churning out positive plays, leading the running-back carousel with 16 of the Chargers backs' 29 touches. Ronnie Brown managed to pick up 33 yards on seven carries while adding a nine-yard reception, and Donald Brown delivered 12 yards on four carries as well as a four-yard reception.

If starter Ryan Mathews cannot play in Week 17, Oliver figures to once again lead a multifaceted rushing attack. The Chargers will square off with the Chiefs next Sunday.
