How many tough games are the San Diego Chargers going to lose this year? That’s probably a bad question to ask, because at the rate things have been going, there could be more to come.
The Chargers had a golden opportunity to get back to .500 with a home victory over the Miami Dolphins on Sunday, only things didn’t quite work out that way. The Dolphins were able to capitalize on four interceptions en route to a 31-24 victory that may have turned their season around for the better while sending the Chargers toward the bottom of the AFC.
The Chargers have winnable games remaining on their schedule, but will they be able to get back into the race at this point? If not, fans will have to spend the offseason wondering what could have been had the team stayed healthy and pulled out games in the end.
On Monday came the tough news that defensive tackle Brandon Mebane will miss the rest of the season with a torn biceps.
But before we look any further into the future, let’s focus back on the game against Miami and see who shined… as well as who failed to shine.
