San Diego Chargers Vs. Detroit Lions: Lions Hammering Chargers Early

With a win, the Detroit Lions can clinch their first playoff berth since 1999, and they're playing like they have everything on the line, exactly how they should. The San Diego Chargers need to win to keep their playoff hopes alive as the Oakland Raiders, their Week 17 opponent clinched an overtime victory against the Kansas City Chiefs earlier on Christmas Eve.

After the first half, the Lions are eviscerating the Chargers in every aspect, winning 24-0 on the heels on a phenomenal first half from quarterback Matthew Stafford. He's leaned on his two most productive receivers, Calvin Johnson and tight end Brandon Pettigrew, to throw for 260 yards and three touchdowns already. Here's video of his third touchdown, a pretty back shoulder pass to Megatron:

The Chargers have just 17 rushing yards from their backfield, a number that has to increase if they want to come back and keep their playoff hopes alive.

Vincent Jackson Questionable With Groin Injury

San Diego Chargers wide receiver Vincent Jackson missed the entire week of practice with a groin injury and is officially listed as "Questionable" for Saturday's game against the Detroit Lions.

Despite battling various injuries, Jackson has not missed a game this season and leads the Chargers with 56 receptions for 1,036 yards and eight touchdowns. Jackson has been a key cog in a revitalized Chargers offense that has averaged 405 yards per game over the last three weeks, helping keep the team alive in the AFC West.

If Jackson is unable to play on Saturday, the Lions defense would be able to focus more attention on Chargers tight end Antonio Gates and wide receiver Malcom Floyd, who have returned to health in December, combining for 26 receptions for 402 yards and four touchdowns during the team's current three-game winning streak.
