Exciting ending: Titans - Chargers


Recommended Posts

Did anybody see this game?  Especially the end? I did not as I was out of the house, but listening to the finish on SiriusXM radio.

 

It was crazy, and radio announcers working overtime (since it is radio, no visuals).

 

Titans have a 3 point lead moving down the field, Chargers with no timeouts left. Right near midfield, it's 4th and 1 with 2:39 left. Vrabel goes for it, but Bosa stuffs it.  Turnover on downs. Rivers now with ball at the L.A. 49, 2:35 to go.

 

Rivers drives them down to Titans 16, and with 44 seconds left hits Ekeler for an apparent TD.  Play is stopped, and Booth review, NY reverses the call, knee is down just before crossing the plane.

 

What do Chargers do next? False start !!  Wow, now first and goal from the 5

 

Rivers passes, incomplete, but DPI is called!!  1st and goal from the 1, again. 34 seconds left.

 

Melvin Gordon tries to bang it in ... TD !!  Wait...  booth review... NY again REVERSES  the call!  Since there are no timeouts for L.A., there's also a 10 second runoff, now just 19 seconds left.

 

Melvin Gordon tries to bang it in again up the gut, and apparently gets stuffed!  So rush the kicking team on to tie with a chip shot FG, right?  NO !!  Booth review stoppage!!  For what?  Clock finally stopped at 7 seconds as ST's were trying to get on and aligned. What is Riveron looking at here?

 

It is now I realize the Titans have either won the game, or lost it already on whatever was going on. If no TD (as was called) there is a 10 second runoff, Titans win.  If a TD (no likely any ref missed that though), Chargers win.

 

So while the review and chat was happening, I'm thinking what a ripoff that L.A. can't attempt to tie (if not a TD) because of booth review buzzing in. (Chargers had no timeouts) Finally, it gets announced:

 

Review shows the runner (Gordon) fumbled the ball. Recovered by Titans in the end zone. Touchback. It seems nobody saw it on the field in real time, but booth guy on replay screens, who buzzed in.  Tennessee offense has to come on and run one play.  That is how the Chargers lost yesterday! Bizarre!

Jeffrey Simmons played and was a nightmare that game. 2tfls 1 sack some hurries and qb hits 

Which is why we can’t take them lightly when we play at home against them. Tannehill gave them more offense and they defense is ridiculous.

Defense has not allowed anyone to score over 20 yet. If Marcus wasn’t so terrible they could be a different team

    • Alshon Jeffrey and Nelson Agholor are pretty good WRs
    • Let’s take picks for The Packers   I will go with the Darius Stills, West Virginia    Thoughts??
    • You have to realize though, that that is not a smart way to approach corner. You don’t know if Rhodes will be back, Rodgers is 5’8” so only a nickel (same with Kenny), and Tell was a project a a corner convert who played safety in college. That’s not nearly enough to be “set” at corner. You can’t pass on upgrades for a position groups while betting on a bunch of question marks.
    • I actually misspoke earlier. I think the 2007 team was the “best” team. That was the year they lost to SD.    The game of the season that year was an 8-0 NE coming to the Dome to take on a 7-0 IND team.   It was 7-6 NE as the 1st half was coming to a close...and then Addai took a Manning pass 73 yards to the house to go up 13-7 at half.   With less than 10 mins to go...Colts scored a TD to go up 20-10. NE came back and won 24-10...after sacking Manning twice on 3rd down in consecutive possessions (the last one a lost fumble). Colts win that game and I think they go undefeated.   Because the very next game was the infamous 6 INT game against SD that the Colts lost 23-21. It was an outlier and they still should have won. They had  ball in the RZ near the end of the game and couldn’t score the TD...then Vinny missed a chip shot.   The only other loss that season was Week 17 against TEN with the starters resting.   And then the loss to Volek and SD in the playoffs.  That team should have been much closer to repeating than history remembers.
    • Good post...   and that was before your very kind words there at the end.   That was most unexpected and very generous.  Appreciate them very much.    Another way Brady helped them, is that for most of his career, he took deep discounts on his contract.   I believe he re-did his deals a number of times.   He might’ve saved NE (guessing here) 50-100 million over his career.  That money got re-invested into the team.  You can build quite a roster when you don’t have to pay your franchise QB top dollar.    Thanks again.   Hope you enjoy the website.
