The Chargers led Denver 24-0 at halftime, and looked like a team poised to thump Peyton Manning‘s new team. San Diego promptly gave up the next 35 points, en route to the largest blown lead ever on Monday Night Football.
According to the link from the tweet above, an official saw a banned substance in the equipment man’s possession, and confiscated it from him before turning it over to the league.
The Chargers official Twitter account acknowledged the accusations on Sunday and confirmed that they were under investigation by the NFL.
Team Statement: “We are aware of the inquiry and are cooperating fully with the League.”
