NFL 2016 Week 17: San Diego Chargers vs Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday, January 01, 4:25 PM, Qualcomm Stadium
Kansas City Chiefs at San Diego Chargers was a clash of the year in the last NFL week. Both teams had a showcase of their best and worst, although the visitors took home the victory. The Kansas Boys placed a strategic Alex Smith who was very active in making goals for the team. Another remarkable performance was from C. West who seemed to grace the rushing and receivership yard percentages. At the start if the match, San Diego showed a great performance as Josh Lambo created scored a 3-yard goal to open the scoreboard for the day.
However, the equalizing score by Alex Smith in the second quarter was a great comeback for the City team. Since the game faired inn game possession, the tactical approach of the teams determined the scores. At the last quarter of the game, Josh Lambo seemed to rejuvenate his tact as he sought to reduce the 34-17 defeat to the opponents. To seal up the lead, Cairo Santos drove in a 37-yard field goal while Hunter Henry gave the hosts a 7-point score to end the match at 37-27. Although the Chargers showed increased performance and skills, the attacking team had little to show. The defense wall for the Chiefs kept most of the passes under containment.
NFL 2016 Week 16: San Diego Chargers at Cleveland Browns on Saturday, December 24, 1:00 PM, FirstEnergy Stadium
It had been over a year (377 days to be precise) since the Cleveland Browns ever won a game but on the eve of Christmas, Santa smiled on them as they beat the San Diego Chargers 20-17. They had suffered 14 losses this season without a single win (now 1-14). The team, the coach and the fans could now enjoy Christmas with a smile on their faces. The Chargers lost their fourth consecutive match with their stats currently at 5-10. By the third quarter, the Browns had a 10-point lead and kept it to the very end. Among the notable players who aided in the win is Isaiah Crowell who has 2 touchdown runs.
A little help also came from the Chargers. With a few seconds remaining on the clock for instance, the Chargers Josh Lambo missed a field goal attempt. He regretted his move very much though. Just after the failed field goal attempt by the San Diego team time elapsed and the small Browns’ crowd erupted in celebration. The players on field poured off their sideline. It was just as their coach described, “Finally getting that win is definitely amazing. You don’t want to say it was like our Super Bowl but it really was.” He was very ecstatic that the team will not join the list of shame of teams that went home 0-16 after an entire season.

Oakland Raiders versus Sandiego Chargers was a great match. The silver and Black are back in the playoffs. Oakland Raiders are back again NFL, officially clinching a great spot in the play offs with their 19-16 win over the San Diego Chargers. The Head coach Jack Del Rios is back and they also have two games left to play.
The offensive line for Sandiego had a problem protecting Rivers, who is sacked in thirty-three times this season. The offensive line for Raiders has done excellent job protecting Derek this year who is sacked only thirteen times.
In the waning minutes of the game, the Chargers had backed up right in front of their end zone. The Raiders defense asked for noise form the crowd and the fans responded well. This is not something that is often seen. The Raider nation was so proud at Qualcomm Stadium and their impact was felt throughout the game.
The Raiders week 15 win, combined with Kansas City loss to the Tennessee means that the Silver and Black are back at the top of AFC west. With the two games that are left in the regular season, there is still a bit left for the team to accomplish.

NFL 2016 Week 14: San Diego Chargers at Carolina Panthers on Sunday, December 11, 1:00 PM, Bank of America Stadium
The Panthers made a 28-16 triumph over the San Diego. This was a much needed outcome for them as they had suffered several consecutive losses in the previous games. Graham had the opportunity to kick start 4 field goals that enabled the Panthers to benefit from a good defense in the 1st half.
The Carolina Panthers won in spite of the inconsistent excursion from Newton, who finished ten of twenty seven passes for 160-yards. At this point Rivers finished a nineteen yard touchdown to D. Inman in the third quarter and 26-16 in the lead. The Chargers on the other hand had scored on a 3 consecutive possessions.
After a 3 and out play the Carolina gave the ball back to the Chargers, The Panthers linebacker Thompson went before a pass planned for Gates. It seemed the Panthers would go in to secure a score, but T. Reed ran before Newton to intercept Kelvin’s pass at the goal line. He drove the ball for a touchdown that was over-turned on replay and the Chargers were ninety seven yards away and down 10 in the first half.

NFL 2016 Week 13: San Diego Chargers vs Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Sunday, December 04, 4:25 PM, Qualcomm Stadium
It has been noted that Tampa Bay Buccaneers have been playing the best football this season with the aim of extending their winning streak in four games including the match they had to play with San Diego Chargers. For them, this meant to contain the NFL number 4 scoring offensive and number 5 passing game with the help of Philip Rivers, their quarterback. Phillip was able to have more than 20 touchdowns in specific he had 23 touchdowns though he missed top targets this year. Many fans view him as a guy who is very accurate, has an incredible touch, a good player and has strong nails.
Tampa Bay was alive for a one final game of South-leading Atlanta and a half-game which was behind Washington. San Diego, on the other hand, was in a tougher position as they were at the bottom of AFC West. The Bucs have only won while in San Diego only once which was in 1996 with a score of 25-27. As years go by, the Bucs are getting better though they face a series of bumps in the road.
According to Mike Evans, he sees the Bucs heading in the right direction as they continue to their season as they are tied with Atlanta Falcons after winning four straight games consecutively. In a match that was played by Bucs and San Diego Chargers this weekend, the Bucs were able to defeat the Charges with a win of 28-21 which proved that in deed the Bucs are heading in the right direct and are becoming better.
NFL 2016 Week 12: San Diego Chargers at Houston Texans on Sunday, November 27, 1:00 PM, NRG Stadium
Houston Texans had earlier lost to Oakland, perhaps they were destabilized due to the loss and could not put themselves together to face San Diego Chargers and hence another loss occurred. Texans had only gotten near wins even in their home, even though they have not lost in five games this season. Chargers led Texans with 21-13 scores in the match that held on November 27, 10am PT (1am ET) at the NRG Stadium, Houston Texas. Brock Osweiler, the quarterback player, for Texans has received major focus for the offense due to his obvious unpredictability.
A large part of the loss against Chargers can be attributed to Osweiler and fans have expressed how discontented they are primarily with Osweiler. Texans is set to face Indianapolis and would have to put in their best in order to win the second place. Chargers also has its own offense and in fact Chargers’ offense in the NFL league is ranked seventh and its average point in the league is 29.2, the second rank in the league. The sad part of it is not really that Texans lost but that they lost in their home.
NFL 2016 Week 10: San Diego Chargers vs Miami Dolphins on Sunday, November 13, 4:05 PM, Qualcomm Stadium
Kiko Alonso was the new hero of the Dolphins team. He refuses to lose the match. The dolphins intercepted Philip Rivers, raced 60 yards with 1:01 minutes remaining, and lifting Miami 31-24 in the game. The Dolphins were riding first four streaks since 2008. That was the only time they made their playoffs during the last fifteen years. The score was stuck at 24. The time left was 73 seconds on the clock. Josh Lambo played a realistic shot, cause the team to win. That was the winning kick. Williams lined up and ran a low post. That was the River’s primary target.
The winning team were in cover 4. Alonso peeled off before the snap. That was a long distance, he had to cover 60 yards, Tyrell chased him all the way. He became unable to catch Alonso, allowing him, to goal. He earned it. He played very well in the league. Rivers obliged for his fourth interception from scrimmage. He tried to push the ball to Williams, intercepted by Lippett and that was the second pick of Lippett, a sweet redemption taken to the limit. Dolphins gave many chances to the Rivers, but they could not use them. That was the dancing time for Dolphins.
NFL 2016 Week 9: San Diego Chargers vs Tennessee Titans on Sunday, November 06, 4:25 PM, Qualcomm Stadium
Sunday was another day of high-scoring match-up between the San Diego Chargers and Tennessee Titans at San Diego. The end result was a 43-35 win for the home boys. Chargers took off to a quick start through a Gates’ touchdown in the first period and summed it up with a field goal from Lambo in the final minute of the period.
Melvin Gordon took the first nap in the second period from a Phillip Rivers shotgun, bursting through a tiny space in front of him. Gordon then cut past the line of scrimmage and to the left setting Tyrell Williams for a three-yard touchdown. Mariota then followed with a 20-yard toss to Walker on 1st-and-10 as Murray and Andrews teamed up for a TD and Ingram got a call for an unsportsmanlike head-butt.
Titans started a drill with a big pick up by Wright and kept churning out yards and Sharpe met a big throw in the 10-yard line. Mathews then beat McCoil for an easy touchdown reducing Chargers’ lead from 16 point to 5 at half time.
The third period was more of a Gordon and Murray affair. Gordon got in the 1 and on 3rd and goal, Rivers was sacked and Titans gifted them another penalty. Gordon punched it in for six points. Bosa had consecutive penalties before Murray broke a long run from Titans. Mariota fumbled on a run and Dwight Lowery scooped and scored.
The fourth quarter saw San Diego restore an eight-point lead through Josh Lambo’s field goal. Murray maintained his hot form and ran it in for a six from the 1 after defensive pass interference in the end zone. The icing of the game came from Gordon’s rush for the 1st picking up 47 yards.
NFL 2016 Week 8: San Diego Chargers at Denver Broncos on Sunday, October 30, 3:05 PM, Sports Authority Field
The San Diego Chargers held up a fairly good defense in their match against the Denver Broncos, but ultimately fell short with the Broncos winning 27-19. Only seventeen days prior, the Chargers had seen success against Denver on Sunday – the Broncos pushed hard to avenge that loss, mind you, though many fans agree that the AFC West remains one of the toughest divisions in football, even midway through the season.
Fans of the Broncos are still groaning a bit, noting that the team still seems to be having the same difficulties as the 2015 Broncos line-up, but with their consistent victories, hope is holding strong. The Chargers have their own problems as well, however they are still holding strong in the AFC West in general. This game was a spectacle of both the problems of either team as well as how the AFC West is performing this season, and the match itself was undoubtedly heated. The Broncos did all they could to snag victory from the Chargers, keeping pressure on their defense throughout the game.
Both the Broncos and Chargers will need more decisive victories as the season continues, and fans on both sides are hoping for wins to follow.
NFL 2016 Week 7: San Diego Chargers at Atlanta Falcons on Sunday, October 23, 4:05 PM, Georgia Dome
This week’s action between the San Diego Chargers and the Atlanta Falcons was not left out in the large series of super-actions. The San Diego buddies were able to thrash the hosts a commendable win of 33-30. It was game that was packed with exhilarating experiences that made the crowd go crazy after every few minutes of gameplay. The players were fight hard to ensure that they make their head coach proud but finally the odds fell on the visitors’ side.
The game had begun on a very high note that was very inauspicious. The falcons had not given up their traditional defense systems that have a tendency of giving up easy and cheap touchdowns form the opponents in the first drive. Their offensive tactics were also relatively slow in the first quarter. However they managed to earn some field goals. In fact, the Falcons were already trailing ahead of the Chargers 7-6 before heading to the second quarter.
By overtime, the game was completely on the side of the Chargers and the Chargers kicker, Lambo Josh was able to strike the winning gal that ensured that the Falcons suffered their third defeat in the season.
NFL 2016 Week 6: San Diego Chargers vs Denver Broncos on Thursday, October 13, 8:25 PM, Qualcomm Stadium
The Denver Broncos started off the season on a good note with wins against the Panthers, Colts, Bengals and the Buccaneers. Coming into the game against the San Diego Chargers, they had one loss to the Falcons and were sitting pretty at 4-1. Their loss to the Chargers was the second loss this season and it snapped them off their winning streak. The chargers have been struggling this season having lost their opening game against the Chief, winning against the Jaguars and losing three consecutive games after that. Coming into this game they were sitting at a 1-4 record and needed a win badly.
The Chargers made their intentions to win early with Phillip Rivers throwing a 5-yard pass to rookie Hunter Henry to cap the team’s first possession. Rivers who is in his 13th season at the Chargers has made 43,094 yards passing surpassing Hall of Famer’s Dan Fouts record of 43,040 yards record in 15 seasons. Josh Lambo scored four field goals at 37, 21, 31 and 32 yards and a safety ball which was for him his career high since he has been with the Chargers.
The Broncos had a harder time at the start of the game. Trevor Siemian returned as quarterback after sitting out of games for more than a week. The quarterback was 30 of 49 for 230, scoring one touchdown and two sacks. They struggled to get yardage for the offensive line and the defense seemed to be out of sync. The game was painful to watch for a lot of Broncos fans as they made one mistake after another giving the chargers free yards and free points. All the late starts, the sluggish play, and unnecessary mistakes cost the Broncos to lose to the chargers by 21-13 effectively losing their reign as AFC’s Western Champs.
NFL 2016 Week 5: San Diego Chargers at Oakland Raiders on Sunday, October 09, 4:25 PM, Oakland Coliseum
With all the chances favoring the Raiders, many people expected a clear Chargers’ defeat, but it did not happen that way. Oakland could have finished with more yards but wasted most of their chances looking for field goals all the way through the first half. The Chargers finished with a 10-9 first half lead over Raiders who were struggling to escape the red zone. Before the Sunday’s game, Oakland scored touchdowns on their 10 red zone attempts. Unlike their previous games, the Raiders ended the match strongly after a weak start. Michael Crabtree made an outstanding contribution, while quarterback Derek Carr at long last released the jitters and scored with better accuracy. Nevertheless, the secondary handed over chunk plays during the contest.
At the start of second half, the Chargers created their usual fourth-quarter slide, whereas the Raiders took advantage of the miscues. The offense made 17 scores unreciprocated points in the third and fourth quarters. Drew Kaser, the Chargers’ punter then messed up the snap on a prospective game-tying goal, which gave the Raiders a chance to pause. Oakland misused many chances in the first half of the game and committed unexpected mistakes. However, the attack kept on firing, and the NFL team made more chances than the opponent and they ended with a victory.
NFL 2016 Week 4: San Diego Chargers vs New Orleans Saints on Sunday, October 02, 4:25 PM, Qualcomm Stadium
The New Orleans Saints and the San Diego Chargers had a tight game that ended with a comeback win by the Saints with a very close score of 35-34. This was the Saints’ first win of the season at the Qualcom Stadium. This however was not an easy win for the Saints with the Chargers having taken possession in the fourth quarter after a Punt by the Saints. But a mistake made by the Chargers’ Melvin Gordon gave the New Orleans side the ball. Drew Bree took advantage of the chance and used to chance to throw a 5-yard touchdown pass to Michael Thomas who made the score to stand at 34-28 in favour of the Saints with less than five minutes left on the clock.
The Chargers then took possession of the ball and though the Travis Benjamin was hit and fumbled linebacker Nate Stupar saved him at the 25-yard line. For the final score of the game, John Kuhn made his third score in the match with less than two minutes left. This was a 1-yard touchdown. The final move was by the Saints’ B.W. Webb who intercepted San Diego’s River with only 1 minute and 10 second left to the end of the game.
NFL 2016 Week 3: San Diego Chargers at Indianapolis Colts on Sunday, September 25, 4:25 PM, Lucas Oil Stadium
San Diego Chargers faced off the Indianapolis Colts in a once in a life time match. The match was fierce and fast paced giving the fans a great experience they will remember forever. One of the outstanding moments was Chargers completing a four-yard pass and then taking a five-yard penalty. Minutes in the game, Ferguson gained nine yards and it was an indication of a great game from the start. The Colts had an outstanding defense which is part of the reason they won. One of Colt’s key players Gordon had 28 yard on 14 carries.
Henry Anderson was in great pressure and unfortunately forced a quick pass from Rivers which luckily fell incomplete. Another game changing moment was when Travis Benjamin, who has unfortunately dropped all passes in the season, hauls in an incredible 43-yard pass from Rivers. It is easy to note that T.Y. McGill has being inactive throughout the season and it was no wonder he was benched in favor of Zach Kerr and Anderson. Zach Kerr was on top of his game last week and he amassed five tackles, two quarterback hits and one sack. The game ended with a score of Colt 26, Charger 22.
NFL 2016 Week 2: San Diego Chargers vs Jacksonville Jaguars on Sunday, September 18, 4:25 PM, Qualcomm Stadium
In their home opener on Sunday, the San Diego Chargers beat the mistake-prone Jacksonville Jaguars 38-14 at Qualcomm Stadium in San Diego. Reeling from a loss in last week’s season-opener at Kansas City, the Chargers feasted on the Jaguars for their 5th consecutive meeting. Quarterback Philip Rivers tied his career-high with 4 touchdown passes, which included two to Travis Benjamin, completing over 70% of his passes and no interceptions. Running back Melvin Gordon had his first 100-yard match of his career. The defense kept Jacksonville Jaguars (0-2) out of the end-zone until the fourth quarter.
Five seconds into the second-Quarter, the San Diego Chargers had a 14-0 lead. Just over 5 minutes into the 2nd Quarter, the Chargers led by 3 touchdowns and never looked back. And unlike a week earlier, the Chargers didn’t turn a 3-touchdown lead into a soul crushing loss. They continued to add on. Outside of a knee injury to running back Danny Woodhead, there wasn’t a single moment of anxiety, anger, or angst for San Diego fans, players, or coaches. Actually, things got so out-of-hand that the Chargers were playing their 2nd string team in the fourth Quarter.
Jacksonville started 0-2 for the 4th time in five seasons. They only crossed midfield 6 times, with Bortles committing 3 turnovers. The Jaguars delivered a performance rife with many errors. The team players were flagged 13 times for 93-yards. The offense stayed relatively healthy & effective, making it seem easy driving down-field on their first game possession. Running back Melvin Gordon capped-off the 8-play, 75 yard drive with a touch-down to make it 7-0 lead early in the 1st quarter. The defense started out strong as well. What can be taken away from this match? Well, the San Diego Chargers have been spectacular for 6 of the 8 quarters they have played of regular season football in 2016. What could be San Diego final home-opener drew only 52,165-fans at 72,000 seat Qualcomm Stadium.
NFL 2016 Week 1: San Diego Chargers at Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday, September 11, 1:00 PM, Arrowhead Stadium
The match was held in Kansas city, Missouri on 11 of September. In this no surprise Kansas city chiefs emerge as victorious over the San Diego Chargers by 33-27. As for the last 3 times they have been victorious. This time the Chiefs worked a lot on their defense. Previous time Chiefs defense easily gives San Diego 5 points. The Chargers were playing a good game and it was looking like they would surprise the crowd, but the Chargers blew everything afterwards by giving away a 21 point lead. Melvin Gordon had 14 carries for 57 yards, an average of 4.1 yards per carry, and 2 TDs.
The injury to Keenam Allen seemed to be turning the game difficult for the Chargers. The way the chargers’ defensive line played previously was encouraging and it was good to see that Brandon Mebane is in good form, taking almost half of the snaps. However the play previously shown was declined and worst to see as the game went for teh Chargers. Dwight Lowery played all defensive snaps, which shows that how exhausted they looked out there. Lowery’s skill set is a whole different thing, but having him out on every snap certainly did not help.
NFL Preseason 2016 Week 4: San Diego Chargers vs San Francisco 49ers on Thursday, September 01, 10:00 PM, Qualcomm Stadium
The final preseason NFL game between San Francisco 49ers at San Diego Chargers saw the 49ers winning it in style against the Chargers. In a game where the coaches had to decide their best squad for the season, the match was even poised at times. But, in the end, the 49ers turned out to be far superior.
The first quarter was all about 9-yard pass play for the 49ers. They were able to pass without any major interceptions in the midfield. The first quarter was crucial for the 49ers because they managed to take a 6-0 lead early in the game. Rashard Robinson, the rookie from the 49ers impressed the coach a lot along with Shayne Skov and Michael Wilhoite. The second quarter was more of an even game with the home team getting a slender lead of 7-6. Phil Dawson scored an amazing 32-yard field goal just on the brink of half time.
The third and last quarter belong completely to the 49ers. Robinson, Blake Bell and Adrian McDonald intercepted any fruitful pass of the Rangers and soon they were leading the game 21-9. The Rangers could not make up for the points in the last quarter. There were many notable performances from the rookie players in the game and both the coaches would be happy to see the upcoming players making a mark in such crucial games.
NFL Preseason 2016 Week 3: San Diego Chargers at Minnesota Vikings on Sunday, August 28, 1:00 PM, U.S. Bank Stadium

NFL Preseason 2016 Week 2: San Diego Chargers vs Arizona Cardinals on Friday, August 19, 9:00 PM, Qualcomm Stadium
San Diego Chargers and their defensive tactic paid off as they crushed Arizona Cardinals 19-3. Even though offensive game of Cardinals lead them to a short lead; keeping of the corners on the side of Chargers, followed by a good game of R. Mathews helped Chargers to get a little bit redemption after giving up nearly 300 rushing yards last week.
The defense of the Chargers started really fast and from the beginning they were dominant on defense and their aggressive game rallied to the football. Worth mentioning is the play of Brandon Williams, an undrafted rookie who finished with four receptions for 55 yards on six targets in the second half.
The play of kicker Josh Lambo and his four offensive field goals to peace Chargers made him a key player. Clemens was 11 of 20 for 134 yards and to compare it with Palmer on the side of cardinals, who finished 4 of 8 for 37 yards, with one interception; we can see that result of the game was not so unexpected. This game was the 22nd time the Chargers faced Arizona in a preseason and San Diego is holding 13-9 edge in the series.
NFL Preseason 2016 Week 1: San Diego Chargers at Tennessee Titans on Saturday, August 13, 8:00 PM, Nissan Stadium
San Diego Chargers at Tennessee Titans was another very big game in the NFL preseason opener. The Titans who began the game on offensive moves in which the earlier two calls were made by the rightful fans who had paid for, indicates the ability to dominate. They team up so rapidly to ensure that they gain the opponents ground during the early minutes of the game.
However that did not mean that the Chargers were worried or frightened by these moves. If you cannot identify the ability they showed to tell they can still be on top of the game. Melvin Gordon was not left behind to show the best plays in his career. He made moves that were very impressive to the fans and marked significance in the entire game.
Every player on the field had purposed to ensure that they show to their fans the importance of them on the field holding on the team’s name. This was a clear indication that this season has so much in store. Even though the Titans were better than the Chargers by the end of the last whistle. Both teams showed that they deserve the title by the end of the season.
NFL 2015 Week 17: San Diego Chargers at Denver Broncos on Sunday, January 03, 4:25 PM, Sports Authority Field at Mile High
Its not uncommon for NFL teams to slack off towards the end of the season and we tend to see this with teams who have already made the playoffs. However, this past Sunday, we were presented with two games the left viewers on the edge of their seats until the very end.
Brock Osweiler has had a lot of success with the Broncos in his rookie season, and this trend continued during the first half of Sunday’s game. Osweiler was able to assist his team to a 7-6 lead at halftime. However, this was also the first week Peyton Manning was on the active roster since his injury during the early season. Bronco’s fans were skeptical whether or not they’d see Manning play, or if Osweiler would remain in control. Their questions were answered in the 3rd quarter when Manning was subbed in after Osweiler committed a few turnovers.
Manning seemed to be in impeccable form and helped guide his team to four scoring drives within the last 20 minutes of the game. Manning not only helped his team score 20 points to win the game 27-20, but he also led his team to the #1 seed in the AFC playoffs. This is huge seeing as they get an extra week to rest before their next game. All in all, the Chargers were able to put up a good fight, even if their playoff hopes had already been squandered.
It was nice to see them playing to win and playing for their San Diego fans since this might be the last season before they move to Los Angeles. In the end it was not enough to match the Broncos who await their next opponent in two weeks.
NFL 2015 Week 16: San Diego Chargers at Oakland Raiders on Thursday, December 24, 8:25 PM, O.co Coliseum
It was all celebration for the Raiders when Philip Rivers’ last pass failed to get to Charles Woodson. It was not really a game that had all the energy that a Raiders’ game normally has but this was also Woodson’s last game on the Raiders’ field and the victory was a welcome for him. The San Diego Chargers were sopped by the Raiders defense which meant a victory for the Raiders with Sebastian Janikowski kicking a 31-yard field goal that was in overtime. This meant that the Raiders won by 23 – 20 in a game that was not really good.
The Raiders victory came despite having 16 penalties 5 of which came while on their overtime drive. This also saw them get their only touchdown of the second half that was on a 3 yard touchdown drive. The chargers however were unable to actually muster their first down which led to this loss being their seventh straight in the division game. The Raiders defense gave the team a reason to march on for the most of the game but the offense just lacked what it took. Though lacking a lot, the game was generally okay and I was nice to see Woodward play his last game in Oakland.
NFL 2015 Week 15: San Diego Chargers vs Miami Dolphins on Sunday, December 20, 4:25 PM, Qualcomm Stadium
In what could be the San Diego Chargers’ last NFL game in Sandiego, it concluded well after the San Diego Chargers beat the Miami Dolphins 30-14. Danny was the hero of the special day after scoring 4 touchdowns and receiving 3 touchdown passes from Philip Rivers. If the move pushes through, the Chargers will now be moving to Los Angeles. The planned move has disappointed some fans and it reflected on their signs. However after playing a game like that, a lot of fans were happy because what could possibly be the last game of the Chargers ended well. It was a nice way to cap off 55 years of memories.
The Chargers played strong early on as fans gave them a standing ovation at the half after putting up a 23-0 halftime lead. Lost in the emotion was that the Chargers played better than they did in failing to score a touchdown in three of their last four games, including in each of their last two home games.The Miami Dolphins just didn’t seem to be in it as they played both sides of the ball horribly. During the fourth quarter a video tribute was played for Malcom Floyd who was retiring after playing twelve gruelling seasons with the San Diego Chargers. After the game was done, it was closed off with Jackson Browne’s ”Stay” and even ”Auld Lang Syne” played on the sound system.
NFL 2015 Week 14: San Diego Chargers at Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday, December 13, 1:00 PM, Arrowhead Stadium
The Kansas City Chiefs saw their reliance again on their defense to grab another victory against the Chargers with just a 3 – 10 win. This takes the Chiefs to six games all win and this puts them right in the mix for playoff contention. They literally shut down San Diego Chargers most of the game and this is what proved o be the deciding factor in the game. Phillip Rivers had two incomplete passes in the dying seconds of the game near the goal line that actually meant that the Chiefs hang on to the victory.
The Chiefs (8 – 5) have actually made it almost impossible for any team to get into the end zone. This was highly evidenced in this game which could prove to be a playoff spot for the Chiefs who have somehow earned it. Melvin Gordon gave what can only be termed as a dismal performance yet again following this loss. Overall, I wasn’t a bad game and amid all the cheering from the crowd, you could tell that the game was a really good one and everyone enjoyed himself. Now it is time fro the teams to forget this and focus on the next one and hope that the playoffs which can be a wild card will work in their favor.
NFL 2015 Week 13: San Diego Chargers vs Denver Broncos on Sunday, December 06, 4:05 PM, Qualcomm Stadium
It seems that Broncos were too welcomed in San Diego given who easily they smashed the Chargers with 17-3.
Chargers defensive coordinator John Pagano was wright to be concerned about Osweiler and should’ve worked harder with Mick McCoy to stop him and come up with more effective defensive then a patchwork offensive line.
Demaryius Thomas received a 3-yard touchdown from Osweiler on the game opening drive and Danny Trevathan interception on Philip Rivers and returning it at 25 yards brought them a score to lead the broncos to victory.
Being this a home game you might expect at least a touchdown from the Chargers, but it’s now a second home game without one, which is not looking good for them.
C.J. Anderson run 22-yards and gave 21-yard pass to Thomas. And Osweild found Thomas wide open in the end zone. Proving that the Broncos had more superior game play.
Maybe it is the stress from moving the team, given that this might have been the penultimate Chargers game in San Diego that contributed to their poor game or because Coach Mike McCoy, 21-23 in three seasons, has not been offered an extension.
But whatever it is it gave the Broncos a quick start and even quicker win.
NFL 2015 Week 12: San Diego Chargers at Jacksonville Jaguars on Sunday, November 29, 1:00 PM, EverBank Field
The Chargers entered Sunday’s game having lost six games in a row, but that ended after this game when they beat the Jaguars by six points. Both teams will be staying home this postseason, having to watch the games like the fans, on TV, rather than play in them themselves. Jacksonville is third in their division, and San Diego is fourth in theirs.
Philip Rivers completed 29 passes after 43 attempts, throwing for 300 yards, four touchdowns, and no interceptions. He is now tied with Vinny Testaverde for eleventh for all time touchdown passes; he passed Joe Montana in this game as well. He now has 275 TD passes.
Blake Bortles completed 30 passes after 49 attempts, throwing for 329 yards, two touchdowns, and one interception.

San Diego led at halftime 21-9, scoring all 21 of their points in the second quarter. The second half, the Jaguars exploded by scoring sixteen points (thirteen were in the fourth quarter) to the Chargers’s ten points. This second half resurgence was not enough to stop the Chargers.
NFL 2015 Week 11: San Diego Chargers vs Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday, November 22, 8:30 PM, Qualcomm Stadium
The Kansas City Chiefs delivered what is one of the most devastating defeats of the night as well as the season by beating the San Diego Chargers 33 – 3. The KC Chiefs defense looks solid now more than ever and it is due to this that they were able to keep any attempts by the Chargers for a touchdown at bay. This means that the Chargers now have a six game losing streak and it is no looking good for them at all. The offense of the Chiefs as well as the defense was just the show of the game and this is what delivered them the victory.
Charcandrick West scored his first NFL touchdown in this game. According to stats, Dontari Poe, the heaviest NFL player at the moment scored his offensive touchdown which is also a record in the NFL history. At halftime, the San Diego Chargers’ LaDainian Tomlinson was inducted into the hall of fame and his famous number 21 was retired. Three players suffered concussions with tow from the Chargers with RT Joe Barksdale suffering a hip injury. The game was mostly one sided and this is why the Chiefs carried the day but they deserved it as the Chargers never showed zeal to win this game.
NFL 2015 Week 9: San Diego Chargers vs Chicago Bears on Monday, November 09, 8:30 PM, Qualcomm Stadium
This Monday Night Football game featured two teams who, nine weeks into the football season, probably are not going to the playoffs this season. The Chargers extended it’s losing streak to five games, and the Bears snapped their two game losing streak. That does not mean, however, the game was not a thrilling game to watch; even though there was only eighteen points scored in the fourth quarter.
Jay Cutler led his team to victory with 345 yards through the air, with two passing touchdowns, one lost fumble, one interception, and 27 completions after 40 attempts. His two touchdown passes in the game broke the previous Bears touchdown pass record of 139 held by Sid Luckman.
Philip Rivers had 26 completions of his own on 42 attempts that racked up 280 yards and one touchdown, and no interceptions.
The Bears were down thirteen points after two quick touchdowns, one of which on an interception was returned for a touchdown. This turned the game around because after this, the Bears started to get something going, scoring a touchdown in the second quarter while only allowing another field goal. But, the Bears would score fifteen points in the fourth quarter in comeback fashion to erase a nine point deficit (16-7) against the Chargers, who only scored three points in the second half.
NFL 2015 Week 8: San Diego Chargers at Baltimore Ravens on Sunday, November 01, 1:00 PM, M&T Bank Stadium
On Sunday, the Baltimore Ravens found a way to win a close game. During the final play, Justin Tucker kicked a 39-yard field goal overcoming another record-setting performance by Philip Rivers in the 29 – 26 victory on Sunday. The Ravens win came with a price where Steve Smith tore his right Achillies tendon in the third quarter and will not be playing again this season. San Diego has lost on the games final play for the third time this season.

Chris Watt who is the backup center also sustained a shoulder injury. The Baltimore Ravens and the San Diego Chargers have endured a rather disappointing season.
NFL 2015 Week 7: San Diego Chargers vs Oakland Raiders on Sunday, October 25, 4:05 PM, Qualcomm Stadium
The San Diego Chargers went against the Oakland Raiders and anyone who saw the game can actually tell you that it was a thing of beauty. It was a very tight game and the final scores are a true testament of just how the game was breathtaking. The Chargers tried to make a dramatic comeback but the win had already been sealed by the Raiders. At halftime, the Raiders were up 30-6 and by second half the scores were 37-6. Sebastian Janikowski was the man of the moment after making touchdowns on the 3 chip shot field goals.
The Oakland Raiders showed great maturity by ensuring that they bagged the win even when the San Diego Chargers looked like they could make a dramatic ending. However, Raiders need to be careful not to repeat some notable mistakes. They completely dominated the game but nearing to the end, they relaxed a bit providing Chargers with an opportunity to pounce back. Amari Cooper had a very incredible match. He was the man who engineered the win with his amazing displays throughout the game. Basically, this player was just unstoppable.
Both the offense and the defense did a good job. There was a time when both teams had equal opportunities to seal the match but the Raiders were just too good to lose their win.

The Steelers however made their presence felt in the second and third quarter of the game by comfortably winning 3-0 and 7-0 respectively. The game was however decided in the fourth and final quarter when Le’Veon Bell made a last second dash to give the Steelers a much needed victory as well as deny the Chargers a highly needed home win.
Though Mike Vick didn’t have an attractive game in the first 3 quarters, he made quite an impact in the final quarter of the game. He made a 24 yard scramble in the middle of the field as well as creating a 16 yard pass to Miller who converted it to put the game on level. It was Le’Veon Bell final second mad rush that would decide the game and throw the Steelers fans into a mad celebratory mood. The win puts the Steelers second behind the Bengals in the AFC North. The Chargers on the other hand are third in the AFC West standings.
NFL 2015 Week 4: San Diego Chargers vs Cleveland Browns on Sunday, October 04, 4:05 PM, Qualcomm Stadium
San Diego Chargers and Cleveland Browns engaged in a tight tussle on the 4th October 2014 whereby the former secured a very close win against the latter. San Diego Chargers was fortunate enough to secure a win of 30 against their opponents who lost with 27 points. However, Chargers could have secured a more commanding win of 39 points only that their opponents managed to save the situation.
The browns ought to have beefed up their defense from the beginning. Leading sport analysts pointed fingers to the defense of the Browns and said that the loss could have been avoided if only they had a better mechanism at the scoring end.
The Browns strikers did so well on their part. They were able to combat the strong defense wall put by the Chargers. Despite the heavy challenge, the Browns still made it possible to hit 27 points and register a very close loss to their opponents.
Now the challenge is thrown to the defense team. Perhaps the Chargers Administration should consider recruiting at least one more defense team player. That way, it will be much easier to combat even stronger teams in the long run. The Browns cannot afford to lose any more matches since the competition landscape is quite steep already.
NFL 2015 Week 3: San Diego Chargers at Minnesota Vikings on Sunday, September 27, 1:00 PM, TCF Bank Stadium
The Minnesota Vikings took on the San Diego Chargers on home turf Sunday September, 27. Vikings’ defense smashed the Chargers’ offensive line and took down Philip Rivers. Everson Griffen was a master at bullying blockers and was in Rivers’ dome all game long earning him 6 tackles, two sacks, and a pass defender. It was obvious that Mike Zimmer’s philosophy Sunday was Blitz, blitz, blitz, then repeat. The philosophy worked with interrupting Rivers’ quick passing game.
Adrian Peterson took some time getting going during the game, but the second half bruising back bulldozed defenders. He obliterated a defender with a stiff arm, running through Eric Weddle as if the safety was invisible for a 43-yard TD. Coming back strong, Peterson scored twice on Sunday. He had not had a TD since 2013. Holding at 126 yards on the ground.Teddy Bridgewater also struggled to get the act together early in the first part of the game, throwing off his back foot although steading later when the ground game started.
Bridgewater got his opening when Chargers corner Jason Verrett went out with a foot injury and Brandon Flowers was inactive due to a different injury, depleting the San Diego secondary count press receivers. Though the biggest headline of the game would be Norv Turner’s return to Minnesota Vikings stadium after he was fired from the Vikings back in 2012.

Dalton continued his impressive season when he led his team to a 24-19 thrash over Chargers on Sunday. With their team back, Bengals have their full strength back and they have become very hard to overcome. Throughout the game, the Bengals always led despite the fact that the Chargers were the last to score. Although the Bengals took the victory, the game was filled with mistakes from both the teams where both teams fumbled twice and each missed a field goal.

The chargers held the ball for over 38 minutes, while the Lions had it for less than 22 minutes. According to Lions coach Jim Caldwell, there are several things that the team has to straighten up. The Packers did a good job of countering them, and the Lions did not do much to react. Their fans can only hope that the team will put the loss behind them and improve.
