Kyzir White’s INT helps close gap with Ravens before halftime

The Bolts needed a big play in a bad way.

Justin Herbert threw an ill-advised pass during the second quarter that wound up picked off by Ravens safety DeShon Elliott. Facing a 17-0 deficit with the defense taking the field once again, a big play needed to be made.

That big play came in the form of Lamar Jackson throwing an even more ill-advised pass over the middle to Rashod Bateman which sailed directly into the arms of Kyzir White who returned it 22 yards back the other direction.

The Chargers were able to turn the interception into a touchdown pass from Justin Herbert to jared Cook. However, they only came away with six points as Tristan Vizcaino missed his fifth extra point of the season. His five misses on extra points currently leads the NFL and puts him just two more misses from tying the NFL-record in a season since 2015.

The Bolts looked to settle down on defense in that second quarter as they were able to sack Lamar Jackson three times, one from each of Joey Bosa, Uchenna Nwosu, and Linval Joseph.
