Your daily dose of San Diego Chargers news & notes from around the web.

Chargers finished before the finish - Kevin Acee (paywall)
It was all but assured that once we started seeing Andrew Gachkar and Mike Harris and the like in games for more than spot duty, it was going to a slippery slope to a season gone bad. (Now, no one was going to predict even a week ago that Crezdon Butler would be the defender beat on Sunday’s decisive play – because Butler joined the team on Wednesday.)

In Final Seconds, Chargers Fall to Titans 20-17 - Ricky Henne
Philip Rivers capped off a 49-yard drive on the offense’s first possession by throwing a perfect strike to Antonio Gates in the back of the end zone. The tight end showed nifty footwork to stay in bounds, giving the Chargers the lead just five minutes into the game.

Locker Room Buzz: San Diego Chargers - Eric D. Williams
After his team squandered a fourth-quarter lead for the second time in three games, San Diego running back Danny Woodhead told the Chargers Radio Network he won’t spend time worrying about what could have been. "I think that’s how it has to be, because we’ve got to get ready for the next one," Woodhead said. "That’s part of the NFL. You can’t sit and whine, or be mad about it. You’re not happy, but you’ve got to move on and get better at the things that we’ve got to get better at."

Rapid Reaction: Titans 20, Chargers 17 - Eric D. Williams
Tennessee owned the line of scrimmage offensively, finishing with 170 rushing yards. Chris Johnson rushed 19 times for 90 yards. And Locker finished with 68 rushing yards.

Chargers short-handed against Titans due to roster mishap - Kenneth Arthur
Due to a nagging groin injury, the Chargers decided to sit linebacker Donald Butler against the Titans after listing him as questionable throughout the week. However, when the team made the decision, it failed to notified the league in time, according to the CBS broadcast.

Philip Rivers quiet for fantasy owners, Chargers in Week 3 - Daniel Kelley
Rivers' formerly huge fantasy value took a nosedive the last couple of years as his touchdown-to-interception ratio declined, with 53 touchdowns to 35 interceptions over the last two seasons. While he only threw for a single touchdown Sunday, and has fewer than 200 yards passing in two of the team's three games so far, Rivers does have eight touchdowns to only one interception so far this season.
