The LA Chargers lost their eighth game of the season in a winnable game against the Buffalo Bills.

The LA Chargers were 3-7 heading into Week 12. Nobody realistically expected the team to make any sort of noise and get into the playoff picture. At this point, the Chargers are playing for pride and for Justin Herbert.

Yet still, they find a way to make a loss painful. Even when we all know it doesn’t really matter, they find a way to make it as frustrating as possible. That is what Week 12’s loss to the Buffalo Bills felt like.

The Chargers lost 27-17 in a winnable game. The Bills did everything they could to let the Chargers stay in this game and the Chargers simply would not allow it. There was no possible way that they would allow a team to out-Charger them.

There is only one good thing about this atrocious display.

The good:

Joey Bosa

That is it. Joey Bosa had the best game of the season and he was the main reason why the defense was able to have some success against the Bills. Sure, they scored 27 points, but they had the field position to score 40+ (we will get into that later).

Bosa was absolutely fantastic. He had eight tackles, six of which were for a loss and three of those were quarterback sacks. He came up huge in this game in limiting Josh Allen’s rushing attack and even had a fumble recovery.
