Chargers Fail to Finish Again

 The Chargers' season of misery continues.

Philip Rivers had another outstanding game, throwing for 3 touchdowns with no turnovers but it was not enough in a 29-26 loss to the Ravens.

Baltimore QB Joe Flacco was also fantastic, throwing one touchdown pass and running for another before leading the Ravens to the game-winning drive with less than two minutes to play. Kicker Justin Tucker nailed the game-winner with 3 seconds left on the clock.

On the final drive of the game the Chargers defense missed too many tackles and when Stevie Williams was called for a pass interference penalty on 3rd and 19 the writing was on the wall.

Penalties were a major issue all game long. A pair of personal fouls on Jahleel Addae prolonged Ravens drives and a false start of Joe Barksdale wiped out a first down pass to Antonio Gates that would have given the Bolts a chance to score another TD. Instead they settled for a field goal to tie and set up the Ravens for the late drama.

The Chargers fall to 2-6. The Ravens improve to 2-6.
