Chargers tight ends barely a factor
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Chargers tight end Antonio Gates caught two passes for 10 yards in the playoff loss at Denver. He was targeted four times.

Fellow tight end Ladarius Green caught two of his three targets for 7 yards, dropping a perfect throw that would have converted a key third down.

Gates, 33, is scheduled to return in 2014 at a $5 million base salary, while Green is slated to earn $570,000.

Chargers offensive studs fizzle against Bengals
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

The Chargers didn't need their normal output from their offensive stars to pull off a victory against the Bengals.

Eddie Royal was the most successful of the bunch, catching one pass for 33 yards. Keenan Allen managed to catch two balls, but only gained 21 yards. Antonio Gates was well-covered by the Bengals, and caught just one pass for 5 yards. The Chargers did not rely on the passing game, which meant none of their pass catchers had big games. Each player will look to rebound next week against Denver.

Antonio Gates seeking bounce-back against Bengals
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Chargers tight end Antonio Gates is hoping for vindication Sunday when his team plays at Cincinnati in a first-round playoff battle. His performance in Week 13 against the visiting Bengals left much to be desired.

Gates fumbled once and had another pass stripped from him for an interception in the 17-10 defeat. He managed just five catches for 41 yards.

"You've got to learn from it," he told the team website. "I've gone back and looked at the film since we're playing them, and they made some phenomenal plays. But that's not who I am and not what we stand for offensively. We hang our hats on protecting the football and that's something that I've always been a part of since I've been here."

Gates is coming off his most productive regular season since 2009, though his touchdowns were down. He caught 77 passes for 872 yards and four scores.

Both Chargers tight ends find end zone
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Chargers tight ends Antonio Gates and Ladarius Green each scored a touchdown in the Week 17 win over the Chiefs. Green caught a 22-yard touchdown in the first quarter, his only reception, while Gates hauled in a 4-yard score in the second.

Gates caught four of five targets for 31 yards while making his 60th touchdown reception from Philip Rivers. That's the most by any quarterback-tight end combo in NFL history. Gates ends the season with 77 catches for 872 yards and four touchdowns, but the 33-year-old seemed to fade down the stretch.

Green is a rising 23-year-old talent who made 17 grabs for 376 yards and three touchdowns.

Can Antonio Gates end five-game slump?
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Chargers tight end Antonio Gates has not topped 50 yards or scored a touchdown in the last five weeks. He's being asked to block more, catch less.

Gates enters Week 17 vs. Kansas City with three touchdowns -- four fewer than he scored in any of the previous nine seasons. On the plus side, his 73 receptions for 841 yards represent his highest totals since 2009.

The Chiefs held Gates to three catches for 21 scoreless yards Week 12. This time Gates likely will face Kansas City's backups, as the Chiefs cannot change their playoff seeding. Still, only one of three CBSSports.com senior Fantasy experts rates Gates a starter in standard 12-team leagues this week.

Don't bet on the 33-year-old busting out of his slump. He's drawn 12 targets over his last three games.
