Philip Rivers got off to a rough start in the Monday Night Football game against the Chiefs, throwing two interceptions before the first quarter had ended. San Diego rallied to tie the game with a touchdown and two point conversion late, then had the ball at the Kansas City 15, with the Chiefs out of timeouts. All the Chargers needed was to run some clock, handle the snaps cleanly, kick a short field goal to escape with a crucial road victory after a short field goal and widen their lead in the AFC West.
Then, in one of the most bizarre endings to a game this side of the Miracle at the Meadowlands, Rivers’ botching the snap burst the Chargers’ chances. Kansas City went on to win in overtime after San Diego got the ball first and failed to pick up a first down.
Kansas City 23, San Diego 20. And a 3-way tie in the AFC West at 4-3 between Oakland, Kansas City, and San Diego. Worst . . . Day . . . Ever . . . .
