The San Diego Chargers seemed to be on their way to a 2-1 start on Sunday before the Tennessee Titans rallied in the fourth quarter for the 20-17 victory. Unfortunately, this was the second time this season where the Chargers blew a lead in the fourth quarter and while Sunday’s loss was no laughing matter–it’s difficult not to laugh how the game ended with Philip Rivers kicking the football on the final play.
It’s a common thing in the NFL where teams try to pull off a trickery play at the end if they’re desperate for a score and that was exactly the case for the Chargers during the final play of Sunday’s game against the Titans. As expected, San Diego tried their best to get something out of their final play, but numerous passes and tosses with the football failed to get them in the end zone to win the game–which shouldn’t come as a surprise considering it barely works.
In fact, the Chargers struggled so bad to get anything going on the final play–Rivers decided to just kick the football at one point out of frustration.
This play by Rivers is the perfect example of how frustrating things have been for the Chargers this season. For a team that could have easily been 3-0 if it wasn’t for two fourth-quarter collapses, San Diego will head into Week 4 with a 1-2 record instead–which is the last thing a team wants when playing in the same division as Peyton Manning.
