VIDEO: Chargers Find New Way to Blow it After Getting TD Overturned Followed By Melvin Gordon Fumble
Same old Chargers. Despite their move from San Diego to Los Angeles several years ago, the culture is the same around this Dean Spanos-led franchise. On Sunday in Tennessee, Philip Rivers and Co. had every opportunity to win late, but of course found a way to blow it in the worst way possible. First, an Austin Ekeler catch and run looked to be a touchdown, only to be overturned with the ball being placed at the 1 yard-line.
Not a huge deal, though, right? With nearly 40 seconds remaining and the ball so close to the goal line, surely the Chargers had ample opportunity to punch it in. Not so fast!
Yes, the same Melvin Gordon who held out into the regular season with the hopes of getting a long-term contract worth $13 million per year fumbled into the end zone. Game over!
