Pittsburgh head coach Mike Tomlin probably never realized it. But when the Steelers beat the Chargers in Sunday’s AFC Divisional Playoff Game, Tomlin just might have saved his job as well as the jobs of other coaches and executives that would have played San Diego this postseason. It sounds hard to believe, but it is true.

Now, we’ve heard of players being coach killers. But never has a team been one. The Chargers are. They’re a coach and executive killer. Tomlin has no idea how fortunate he is. Yes, he’s coaching in his first AFC Championship Game Sunday. But unlike Kiffin, Peterson, Shanahan and Dungy, he has a job. He survived the Chargers.
