Call it a 'Mission Bay Miracle' as Chargers reach playoffs

The Carson Show

Arizona didn't make the playoffs, but Carson Palmer surpassed the 4,000-yard passing mark. He's the first player to throw for at least 4,000 yards with three different NFL teams.

No place like home

The No. 1 seeds are Denver in the AFC and Seattle in the NFC.

They get a week off, and though they don't know yet who they will play in the divisional round, the possible matchups are intriguing.

Denver will play San Diego, Kansas City or Indianapolis — either an AFC West foe, or a rematch between Manning and his old team.

Seattle will play host to Green Bay, New Orleans or San Francisco. The Seahawks are a combined 4-0 against those teams in Seattle during the last two seasons.
