3 Worst Things: Chargers blow another 4th quarter lead

3 Worst Things: Chargers blow another 4th quarter lead

Once again, the San Diego Chargers headed into the 4th quarter of a home game with a lead, and once again the team ended up with a loss. This time, it was the Tampa Bay Buccaneers leaving as victors.

Bolts-Bucs, 5 things to watch

  Rivers pays Bucs back: Philip Rivers tore the Bucs apart the first time he faced them, amassing four touchdown passes in San Diego’s 41-24 victory eight years ago.

Most career INTs vs. Philip Rivers? Bucs' Brent Grimes

The Bucs only face AFC opponents once every four years, so even an 11-year starter like Philip Rivers has a limited history against Tampa Bay -- he threw four touchdowns and zero interceptions in a San Diego win in Tampa in 2008, then threw for another three (but two INTs) in a 2012 loss in Tampa.

Playoffs? Rivers, Chargers not out of mix yet

What should the Chargers do in the offseason?

The Chargers 2016 season is virtually over, but a strong offseason could keep their chances of a SuperBowl run alive. Jamie Sewell puts on his GM cap to talk about how he'd approach the offseason. Here’s the deal, Tom Telesco: I think you've done a good job as the San Diego Chargers GM. Things haven't exactly gone to plan, but you've assembled a team with a fair amount of talent. The only problem is, this is a team with an ever closing window. When you have Philip Rivers at QB, you should be gearing up for a deep playoff run, not a top 10 draft pick two years in a row. Now, I don't think...

Rivers knows what he let go in loss to Miami

This is not how it goes around here. Even during a season in which the Chargers have found all manner of wild ways to lose, we didn’t see this one coming. The Chargers don’t get let down by the one who lifts them up. Philip Rivers was intercepted four times in the fourth quarter as the Chargers...
