The Los Angeles have officially ended their playoff drought.

With their 20-3 victory over the Indianapolis Colts on Monday night, the Los Angeles Chargers

did their part to clinch an AFC wild-card berth following some favorable results in Week 16.

Losses by the New York Jets, New England Patriots and, perhaps most fittingly the Las Vegas Raiders, put the Chargers in place to clinch against the Colts

Bound for the playoffs for the first time since 2018, the Chargers (9-6) notched their second three-game win streak of the 2022 season in order to get there.

It will be the Chargers' first postseason appearance under second-year head coach Brandon Staley

with star quarterback Justin Herbert, who was drafted with the No. 6 overall pick in 2020.

The Chargers will play into mid-January despite losing a handful of key players due to injury this season
