This picture sums up my feelings about our season so far!
Yay, throw a party! We barely beat a 2-12 team, we’re 6-8, and we need a Christmas miracle just to keep our playoff hopes alive. In order to have a one game playoff scenario to send the AFC champ to the playoffs, the Broncos must lose at home to Buffalo and the Chargers most go to Tampa Bay and beat a good NFC team in an eastern time zone.
In case you missed it yesterday, it was a dismal Sunday morning of fumbles and horrible referee decisions. I was pissed off to see that it was the Bumbling Chargers that showed up and not the Prime Time Super Chargers and I was among the many who had written the game off.
The Chargers just scored a seemingly garbage TD and missed a two point conversion to make the score less embarrassing at 21-16 with 1:13 left to play. Fortunately I still had the game on and I was just waiting for 0:00 on the clock in order to really come to terms with this season and what could have been. As I was milling around I heard the word “recovery”. This meant nothing of course because this year the Chargers can seemingly screw anything up.
The Chargers scored a touchdown and we pulled ahead by one. We failed on the two point conversion with 0:36 to play and we pooch kicked it. This was plenty of time to make it interesting of course. The Chiefs were able to get in range for a fifty yarder and it curved to the left at the last minute and gave San Diego a break for once this year.
Thanks goodness for Kansas City weather!
All in all, you didn’t miss anything. It was a terrible game riddled with yellow handkerchiefs.
