The Chargers surpass the Colts and achieve the first 

INDIANAPOLIS - I.A. Chargers safety Derwin James Jr. raised his fist as he hopped around in a Santa

hat as director of education Brandon Staley put his arm around owner 

Dean Spanos and handed him a game ball. "I was hoping to give him a game point considering 

the fact that he came," Staley yelled. "He's been a patient. He's invested in this team. 

He's delivered to anyone collectively ... Game ball, playoff appearance: Dean Spanos."

Spanos, Staley and the Bolts had a lot to celebrate in the visitor's locker room at Lucas Oil Field after defeating

 the downtrodden Indianapolis Colts 20-3 on Monday night. For the first time since 2018, the Chargers will return

 the postseason, having clinched a playoff spot after improving to 9-6, with final games in the regular season.
