As of this writing, the Los Angeles Chargers are still on the outside of the playoffs, looking in. By virtue of a tiebreaker, the Tennessee Titans hold the AFC's No. 6 seed, while the Chargers sit in the No. 7 spot with their matching 8-7 record. The Chargers are set to square off with the division rival Raiders in their regular-season finale on New Year's Eve, but when they take they field, they might be at a disadvantage. Running back Melvin Gordon suffered an ankle injury during the fourth quarter of L.A.'s Week 16 win over the Jets, and his availability for next week is in question, according to Chargers coach Anthony Lynn.
