The first half started well enough, with San Diego shutting down the Jaguars' offense and building a quick 10-0 lead, before the Chargers seemingly fell asleep on both side of the ball and allowed two consecutive Blaine Gabbert touchdowns (making this his first multi-TD game). Then, as if they were finally ready to answer the challenge, the Chargers offense went into it's unstoppable "abandon the run" offense and put up 14 points of their own to regain a 10 point lead heading into the half.
It doesn't seem to matter how much of this team I watch, I will never be able to figure them out. They obviously have the talent to be good, otherwise they wouldn't explode in entire quarters of dominance, but if they lost this game by 10+ points I don't think I'd be surprised.
Umm, Go Chargers, I guess.
