SAN DIEGO - Philip Rivers threw for one score and reached the 4,000-yard mark for the fourth straight season, Ryan Mathews ran for two scores and hit 1,000 yards rushing, and the San Diego Chargers kept their slim postseason hopes alive with a 34-14 victory against the playoff-bound Baltimore Ravens on Sunday night.
The Ravens' loss put them one-half game behind the Pittsburgh Steelers (10-3) in the AFC North Division. If the Steelers win their last three games, they would end up with the top seed in the AFC.
Both the Steelers and Ravens (10-4) clinched playoff spots earlier in the day Sunday.
The Chargers (7-7) neutralized Baltimore's normally ferocious defense, which got Ray Lewis back after a four-game injury absence, and scored on six of their first seven possessions. San Diego is tied with Oakland, a game behind Denver with two to play.
