Chargers let one slip, lose to Raiders - Michael Gehlken (UT$)
Inman was on the field for maybe overtime’s most critical play. Wide receiver Seth Roberts bobbled and caught a 33-yard pass, pushing Oakland to the 10-yard line.

With the Chargers so invested, and seemingly very few other options in the San Diego backfield, Gordon had a golden opportunity. Unfortunately, it appears it’s gone to waste.
