What other grade could the team expect as that debacle?
It shouldn’t have happened. Plain and simple. But it did, against all odds.
CBS Sports’ John Breech gave the Chargers an “F” for their performance this week, and rightfully so. Here’s what he had to say:
“When you lead a game by 21 points with under seven minutes left to play in the third quarter and lose, you get an F. The Chargers have had some ugly meltdowns this year, but this was one topped them all. After dominating the Broncos for the better part of three quarters, the Chargers defense absolutely disappeared, allowing Denver to put together four touchdown drives of at least 75 yards. Before those scoring drives, the Broncos didn’t have a single possession that went for more than 19 yards. Justin Herbert also threw two interceptions that led to 10 points for Denver. The Chargers have now somehow lost three games this season where they’ve held a lead of 16 or more points (Broncos, Saints, Buccaneers).”
