Chargers become the sixth team to make the playoffs after starting 5-7 or worse

San Diego Chargers need to be thankful for Philip Rivers and head coach Mike McCoy, because they started clicking at the right time.  With the win on Sunday the Chargers did something that only 6 other teams have done including themselves in 2008 and 1995.
