Follow along as we bring you live updates and analysis from the game from kickoff through the final whistle.

Before the Jets took on the Los Angeles Chargers at MetLife Stadium, Adams encountered a young fan who had a gift for the rookie safety.

With 5 seconds left in the first half, Petty threw a Hail Mary intended for Kearse which was intercepted by Chargers' WR Keenan Allen.

With nothing to lose, the Jets started the game with some trickery.

In the first half, Bilal Powell led all Jets running backs with 59 yards on 7 carries.

The Los Angeles Chargers couldn't win their biggest game of the season in Week 15 and the loss severely damaged their playoff hopes.

In need of a jump start on offense with second-year pro Hunter Henry done for the year, the Los Angeles Chargers turned to veteran tight end Antonio Gates, and he delivered.

Because Baltimore already won earlier this weekend, the Chargers entered the day facing postseason elimination if Tennessee and Kansas City both won. The loss snapped the Chargers four-game win streak and was just their third loss in the past 10 games.

Kicker Nick Rose, claimed off waivers last Monday, missed a 47-yard field goal to end the Chargers' first second-half possession. Adams gave the young boy his player edition Air Jordan XIII cleats to take home with him. They were rewarded with a 57-yard touchdown run, tying the game at 7-7. Gordon also had a 1-yard run for a score, and now has 12 total touchdowns on the season.

Gordon went 28 yards on the first two plays of the drive, and then Rivers completed three passes for 50 yards, the last a 23-yard strike to tight end Sean McGrath to set up the Chargers on the 2-yard line. Petty has thrown for 193 yards on 21 of 48 passing.
