Chargers may have to strike now

Posted by ESPN.com’s Bill Williamson

SAN DIEGO -- The Chargers may need to put a long touchdown drive together here.

The Chargers stopped Denver at the San Diego 39 with eight minutes to go and the Broncos leading 27-23. It was a huge stop.

Now, San Diego has to do something with it if it doesn’t want to fall 3.5 games behind Denver.

Meanwhile, San Diego linebacker Kevin Burnett was taken off on a cart to the locker room with an ankle injury. Burnett has been very active and his loss would hurt the Chargers.
