With Thomas Davis and Casey Hayward able to return from their injuries earlier in the game, the Football gods have apparently decided it was time for a pair of Chargers defenders to exit the game once more with injury. In just a few plays time, both defensive end / linebacker Uchenna Nwosu and linebacker Denzel Perryman would leave the field due to injuries. And a play after Perryman left, the Titans took the lead with a touchdown pass to Tajae Sharpe who was all alone in the back of the end zone. It was a zone coverage that apparently did not account for the end zone being more than one yard deep.

Both Nwosu and Perryman were able to walk off the field under their own power, so there is some hope that either or both could return today.
