Chargers suddenly showing signs of life

And just as we were getting ready to declare the Chargers’ 2013 season dead, they have a pulse.

Trailing 17-0 in the fourth quarter, quarterback Philip Rivers drove his team 57 yards in the first 2:01 of the final fifteen minutes to cut the margin to 10.

The touchdown came on a 16-yard touchdown pass to receiver Keenan Allen, which followed by just a few plays a 30-yard catch and run by Eddie Royal.

The Chargers still have a long way to go, but this game became a bit more a game, quickly.  Two stops and two scores and this could get interesting.

    Plus the incompetent refs will make sure it’s Manning vs Brady

    So, when the league announced that this weekend’s games would be officiated just like regular season, it was code for “we’re making sure that the championship match-ups are NE-DEN & SF-SEA.”

    12 playoff losses and nine one and dones for Manning by this time next week. NINE!
    Only fitting in a year where he broke records that he extends what I would say is his most impressive one. Nine one and dones is an accomplishment for the ages

    Ha- how is that prediction working out for you? Curious minds want to know-Have a nice day 🙂

    Signs of life means nothing when it comes to this pathetic SD effort. The dinky dunky Broncos will be crushed – either by the Patriots, Seattle or San Francisco.

    Again, why do teams always wait till the 4th quarter to do something offensively?

    Quinton Jammer needs to retire before the end of the game. Can’t cover a blevit!
