Chargers Lose to Bucs: The Interception

The Bucs put pressure on Philip Rivers and Rivers extends the play by scrambling to his right. Any time you can get Philip to move his feet, the defense is happy. He isn’t Robert Griffin out there. He isn’t even Tom Brady when it comes to running the football. Philip may be the worst quarterback on the move.

As Philip is scrambling to his right, he misses seeing an open Antonio Gates in the middle of the field. As he gets closer to the sideline, it seems that he is just going to chuck the ball out of bounds and we are going to kick a field goal to tie the game, but Eddie Royal flashed open. Philip tried flip the ball over the defender to get the first down.

Perfect throw…. right to the defender! TOUCHDOWN!

Just another day in the life of Chargers fans.
