Weddle: Chargers 'ecstatic' to be in playoffs

SAN DIEGO (AP) - A month ago, no one could have imagined the San Diego Chargers would be practicing on New Year's Day.

They'd just been manhandled by the Cincinnati Bengals, losing 17-10 to fall to 5-7. The playoffs were a far-off dream.

There the Chargers were on Wednesday, though, practicing on a sunny, 72-degree afternoon for their wild-card game Sunday at Cincinnati.

The Bengals were the last team to beat the Chargers, who have won four straight games.

Pro Bowl safety Eric Weddle says it helps having a familiar opponent for the Chargers' first playoff game in four seasons. He knows it's going to be a tough challenge, ''but we can't be more ecstatic with the opportunity we have. We surely missed this chance over the last three years. I know I have.''
