Best Chargers moments at San Diego Stadium: 4. Comeback win over the Miami Dolphins in the 1994 playoffs

The Chargers’ 1994 season was one of their best in the team’s history, as so far it is their only appearance in the Super Bowl. They went 11-5 in the regular season to win the AFC West and get a two seed and a first-round bye in the AFC playoffs.

The Chargers didn’t get off to the best start in the 1994 playoffs, as they fell behind 21-6 to the Dan Marino-led Dolphins at Jack Murphy Stadium.

The game quickly turned around though, as Chargers QB Stan Humphries lead a second-half rally to give the Chargers a 22-21 win. The Chargers defense, lead by linebacker Junior Seau, also had a huge impact in the second half as the Dolphins only managed to run 16 second half plays.

DE Reuben Davis caused a safety to kick off the second-half scoring for the Chargers, and the team never looked back. The defense also held the Dolphins to only 26 rushing yards on the day.

The Bolts would go on the road to upset the Pittsburgh Steelers in the AFC Championship the next week to appear in the franchises first Super Bowl, where they lost to the San Francisco 49ers.
