Chargers Defeat Redskins 23-20

The Chargers closed out the regular season with a hard-fought win over the Washington Redskins.  Rivers and the starters delivered a 10-0 lead to the reserves with three quarters left to play.  They did just enough to hold on.

The Redskins had outscored the Chargers reserves 20-6 when they gave the ball back up four points with 4:33 left to play.  Craig Davis returned a short kick off 22 yards to the San Diego 42.  From there Billy Volek marched the offense the remaining 58 yards for the go-ahead touchdown.  He did it by spreading the ball around.  Michael Bennett, Davis, Malcom Floyd and Mike Tolbert all touched the ball on the 12 play, nearly four minute long drive.

It was a closer game than it likely would have been had the Chargers had anything to play for, but San Diego showed a lot in this one.  Malcom Floyd had a career day both in yards and receptions.  Craig Davis looked like a player the Chargers can afford to rely on.  And the defensive reserves who initially looked over matched in the 2nd Quarter held Washington to only six points in the 2nd Half.

Most importantly, the Chargers suffered no major injuries.
