The Chargers season ended weeks, if not months ago yet glimpses of what could be are starting to emerge from the ashes of despair and another in-division loss.
The Kansas City Chiefs beat the Chargers 10-3 as the hapless offense continues to sputter between a banged up offensive line that was once again missing D.J. Fluker & King Dunlap, who exited with an ankle injury. Philip Rivers was sacked five times, three coming from Dee Ford (twice unblocked) and were held to only 44 rushing yards. Despite all of that offensive futility, the Chargers had a chance to tie the game from the Chiefs one-yard line with five seconds left in the fourth quarter.
Alas, it was not to be. A delay of game penalty followed by a false start by Chris Hairston put the Chargers at 2nd and 11 with two seconds left, and an incompletion to Danny Woodhead sent the Chargers to their fourth straight in-division loss.
Philip Rivers dejectedly discussed why the 10-3 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs sums up their season, Malcom Floyd discusses the “nightmare” loss and find out why the Chargers have a good young nucleus shaping up in their defense.
