What The Hell, Bro???
Things were looking great for the B'cos when they took the field this afternoon. KC was comfortably ahead of the Chargers as that game was winding down and Denver marched down the field on their opening drive for a seemingly easy TD. It appeared that the AFC West was in the bag. Then everything went to complete shit. The Chiefs fell victim to a late game Phillipe Rios flurry and an onside kick to choke away the game. Meanwhile, back in Carolina, the Sex Panthers were throwing all over the field and the Broncos offense went to sleep after the 1st quarter. (I'm really surprised that screen pass didn't work on the 12th time they tried to run it).
So, the Chargers are still alive and next week's game against the Bills at home will likely be meaningful (unless SD loses its morning game in Tampa). A pretty lackluster game today all around, where everything seemed to be going wrong. There was no pass defense, inconsistent offense, and the obligatory Prater missed FG. Buffalo was eliminated from playoff contention today, so they won't be playing for anything next week. Unfortunately, it appears we probably will be. It would be a really bad time to drop an egg at home.
