Good morning, Chargers fans!
Let’s just come out and say it: Yesterday was garbage!
The Chargers offense sputtered on Sunday afternoon in a game where it flat out shouldn’t have. Justin Herbert threw for under 200 yards for just the third time in his career (second in the past four games) against a bottom-five defense that was missing almost half of its’ starters.
Defensively, the Chargers got the Vikings into plenty of uncomfortable situations but couldn’t finish the job and allowed too many conversions on pivotal third downs. I liked their effort in that game, but when it mattered most, they couldn’t get it done.
Lastly, the Vikings were penalized three more times on the night for an additional 66 more yards than the Chargers and yet it didn’t do much to keep the Vikings from pulling this one out.
As always, feel free to use this post to continue yesterday’s discussion surrounding the game and/or anything else on your minds.
