The San Diego Chargers are close to hitting rock bottom
San Diego needed to bounce back after their embarrassing home loss to the Denver Broncos two weeks ago. They were unable to do this yesterday, which adds insult to injury.
Philip Rivers was a non-factor in the loss because he averaged 4.5 yards per pass attempt, which would rank last in the NFL if he did this every game.
Cleveland surrenders 6.9 yards per pass attempt, so Rivers should have played better.
Cleveland gives up 4.4 yards per rushing attempt which ranks 22nd in the NFL, but San Diego had 3.4 yards per attempt as a team.
Ryan Mathews averaged under four yards per attempt on 24 carries and fumblemania returned as he lost the football for the second time in five games.
This was a terrible loss because Cleveland entered the game with a 1-6 record. San Diego was coming off a bye week, so they had plenty of time to prepare for this game.
This was an opportunity for the Chargers to get what should have been an easy win. Instead, they scored six points against a team that was giving up 26 points per game.
San Diego has been consistently inconsistent because they were 4-1 in their first five games last season, they went 0-6 in their next six games and finished the season 4-1 in their last five games.
The Lightning Bolts won their first two games this season, but are 1-4 in their last five games.
San Diego’s next game is at home on Thursday against the 1-6 Kansas City Chiefs. If the Chargers lose this game, they will officially hit rock bottom.
