The San Diego Chargers needed a miracle to pull off the come-from-behind victory on Sunday afternoon, but what they got instead was a circus of a play.
The Chargers found themselves down by three and out of field goal range with only seconds remaining, and they had one play to score a touchdown. After a series of laterals and some desperate attempts to move down the field, San Diego began moving backward into its own territory.
With Danny Woodhead heading straight into some Titans defenders, he tossed the ball back toward Philip Rivers. The ball came bouncing toward the quarterback, but instead of trying to scoop it up and keep the last-ditch effort going, Rivers opted to end the Chargers misery by kicking the ball, which drew a couple of flags.
