But here they are, tied for first place in the AFC West with the Kansas City Chiefs.

Chargers: Travel to Kansas City on short rest for a first-place showdown with the Chiefs on Saturday. It wasn't any different on Sunday during a 30-13 blowout loss at the StubHub Center.

That was almost the only thing that went wrong for the Chargers, who won their fourth straight game to improve to 7-6 and stay tied for first in the AFC West with the Chiefs.

Philip Rivers didn't really look like an old guy.

Although Bashaud Breeland returned an interception of Kellen Clemens' pass 96 yards for a touchdown with 2:36 to play, Washington's defense had few answers.

The Chargers have won seven of their last nine games.

Although these teams' records are almost identical, the Chargers are sitting atop the AFC West alongside Kansas City and Oakland, while the Redskins are already eliminated from the NFC East title race behind Philadelphia (10-2).

Washington fell to 5-8 and was eliminated from playoff contention.

Kirk Cousins was simply disappointed when the Redskins' playoff hopes officially ended in a soccer stadium in Southern California. "I never thought we'd get beat like this two weeks in a row".

RUSHING-Wash., Perine 17-45, Daniels 2-12, Cousins 2-8. Los Angeles was much better - 6-for-15. We just don't have a lot of room to make a mistake here or there and then still be right there in the fourth quarter. Tyrell Williams (28 catches for 448 yards) and (27 catches for 443 yards) have been deep threats.

Gordon rushed for 78 yards while adding 5 receiving yards as the Chargers' dominated Washington the entire game. But the end result was no last-second field goal attempt. The defense can't allow Kirk Cousins and the running game to take off because once it gets going it won't be easy to stop. Williams said Gruden asked him earlier in the week if "he could go". "We've taken major steps back".

"The offense is clicking right now. Right now, we're not".

Los Angeles established that rhythm from the start, scoring on their game-opening possession. He's been unstoppable in the last three games, with 33 catches for 436 yards and four touchdowns.

Los Angeles stretched its lead back to two scores, 20-6. Washington managed only 201 total yards and fell behind by 24 points in the third quarter.

On track for his best season in years, Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers has the Los Angeles offense firing on all cylinders heading into Sunday's matchup with the Redskins.

The Chargers hit on a 75-yard touchdown and a flea-flicker that went for 51 yards, setting up a 1-yard touchdown. This time, Rivers tossed six touchdowns and did not turn the ball over once.

"We have a shot", Rivers said. In addition to Rams and Seahawks wins, Washington almost beat the Saints in New Orleans. "We have four tough football games ahead of us, starting this week".

Linebacker Chris Carter was taken off the field on a cart because of a fractured left fibula.
