Holy crap… I’m just going to type this to get it up quick.
Eddie Royal has to be grinning ear-to-ear right now! The Chargers have a HUGE win on the road against a tough Ravens team. We’re all in shell-shock, because they play questionably, but take home the win.
On offense – Rivers, Gates, Floyd, Royal, and Allen all handled… but, my award goes to Trevor Robinson for getting it done at center.
On Defense – Geez guys… it wasn’t a day for the Chargers defense in fantasy football, that’s for sure. But, Liuget continues to make a case for the pro-bowl.
Can our hearts take another win like this? They keep coming up huge in the final seconds, which is something this team has been lackluster at in the past… closing out games. The Ravens showed that they didn’t want to win this game, and they did it by playing dirty, and sloppy. They had a ton of penalties, and the Chargers came out victorious.
Now, we can sit back and watch either the Chiefs, or the Broncos lose. We can either be firmly on top of the wild card race, or just a tick behind the division lead, with two divisional games ahead. They just need to tighten it up.
I can go into the good and bad about this game later. I’m happy for the win. Perhaps a three game winning streak is enough to make us forget about a three game losing streak. We have a tough road, and it started by winning on the road today. I wouldn’t be checking the “win” box if I had to play the Chargers. That’s for sure. Not if I was the Patriots, Broncos, Chiefs, or 49er’s. I would be trying to find out why those pesky Chargers are somehow at 8-4!!!!
Keep Bolting Toward Excellence!
