The Los Angeles Chargers were in a giving mood on Sunday. Normally or no longer it is nice to present, particularly to guests at some stage in the shuttle season. Handing over pigskins in bunches at some stage in a football sport, however, is no longer appropriate.
The Chargers had 12 possessions in Sunday’s 39-10 loss to the Minnesota Vikings. Seven of those 12 possessions resulted in turnovers.
Philip Rivers threw three interceptions, including one on the closing two drives of the sport, and fumbled. Melvin Gordon misplaced two fumbles. And Hunter Henry chipped in with a fumble.
“I have not seen that group all year,” coach Anthony Lynn talked about, by job of the L.A. Times. “We now beget gotten beat. We now beget never gotten beat admire that. That became my distress this day. That is my frustration valid now. I have not seen that group in three years since I have been right here.”
In yet another misplaced season, mountainous adjustments will be coming in L.A. Lynn will be on the scorching seat. Gordon is seemingly long previous. But it no doubt all begins with the quarterback.
Rivers, who is taking half in out the closing year of his contract, important the haziness surrounding his future when asked if or no longer it is sunk in that he’ll be entering the closing two-sport stretch of his 16-year profession with the Chargers.
“I mean, they are going to be (the closing two video games),” he talked about. “I assemble no longer basically seek info from that it is far, or I assemble no longer basically deem or no longer it is a loopy thought that it will be. I deem you upright assemble no longer know.”
Sunday marked Rivers’ third sport this season with three or more INTs, tied for 2nd-most in the NFL — supreme Jameis Winston has more.
The Chargers could well seemingly also judge they’re bright to pass on from the 38-year-traditional Rivers, who has struggled for prolonged stretches this season, tossing 18 INTs through 14 video games. The QB could well seemingly also sight to at last pass on to yet another pasture or hang up the cleats for appropriate and mosey into retirement.
“Or no longer it is far no longer entirely going to be my resolution,” he talked about. “That is the keep I deem that uncertainty lies. We are able to upright form of want to belief. … I deem with that uncertainty it does add some emotion.”
If it is far the extinguish for Rivers with the Chargers, his stir will hump down as one of many ample ones that can perhaps seemingly also never rep postseason success.
