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!

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

    • When we ran the ball 19 out of 20 plays something didn't jive with me. It made me think either JB has no say on the matter or JB wasn't 100%. Nobody runs that ball that much. If I had Emmitt Smith, Jim Brown, and Barry Sanders I wouldn't call 19 run plays out of 20  
    • I ran out of likes but YES to both of these  
    • If we draft a QB it better be the right one because JB is above average, he isn't a Hoyer or a Painter like some are making him out to be. As a Colts fan I feel bad for JB because we have a fan base that some doesn't like him. 
    • He signed a two year contract ,that's to protect Ballard as well.If he's not the answer we can try to get a quarterback.Either through draft or possible trade .
    • Is this a request that JB needs to make (letting him throw and change plays)? This is a serious question. With how much Frank goes on and on about Jacoby being such a great leader, I honestly assumed he would already let JB do these things.  Is the problem Frank holding Brissett back, or Brissett just not being a very good decision maker in the heat of the moment? Again, serious question.   I don’t really get into the QB arguments on here but I do tend to side with those who think Brissett is not the one for us down the stretch. The TV doesn’t always pan out to show you who is or is not open, but I saw several plays in this game and others where I felt he had options to throw the ball and he didn’t. I’m not sure if this is because he was so set on sticking with the original play call, or because he just doesn’t fully have the skills of a decisive game play maker. I feel like Frank would not get upset if JB went out there and changed the play at the line of scrimmage... isn’t that what good leaders have to do at times?   Maybe you are right, they do need to have this specific conversation... just would surprise me if they are just now having this talk this far into the season.  Sorry for the long post
