(6:40 PM): Adrian Peterson just found the end zone for the third-straight week. Peterson now has over 100 total yards or a score in five consecutive games.
(6:37 PM): San Diego's offensive struggles continue, as Philip Rivers is just 17/28 for 167 yards and an interception on the afternoon. Still no receptions for Antonio Gates today, and Stevie Johnson and Javontee Herndon lead the Chargers in targets with seven each.

(3:38 PM): Vernon Davis has tied a season-high in catches with six, and set a new season-high in yards with 68 as he has hauled in all six of his targets from Brock Osweiler today. Davis could make himself relevant in the world of fantasy tight ends down the stretch.
