The San Diego Chargers might just might have played the worst game in the team history. This recap is going to be a bit shorter than most as all of San Diego was under a mandatory black out due to NFL ticket policy. The Chargers had multiple chances to win tonight’s game against the Baltimore Ravens. The game was lost when the San Diego Chargers gave up a 4th down and 29 to Ravens running back Ray Rice. The 4th-and-29 conversion by Ray Rice was integral to Ravens OT win. Ravens win probability before the play was 23%; after the play was: 47%.
Rice: “[They figure they] can rally and make the tackle and game over. I guess when you put me in the equation it’s not that easy.”

This was another game in which the San Diego Chargers offensive line could not provide protection for Phillip Rivers. The Chargers offensive line gave up six sacks to the Baltimore Ravens defensive. Rivers would finish the night 23-36, 228 yards, 1 touchdown and did not throw any interceptions. The Chargers offensive could not get the ball rolling which lead to 9 Mike Scifres punts for an average of 53.2 yards per punt.
The San Diego Chargers locker room is in disbelief of the outcome of the game. The Chargers defense played good the whole game besides allowing the Ravens to convert on that 4th down and 29. The stand out on the Charger defense was defensive back Shareece Wright defended multiple chances to give the Chargers a chance to win in overtime.
Locker room as solemn as I’ve ever seen. Takeo Spikes: “I can’t even explain it.” #chargers

I’ve seen disappointment but never heard the absolute silence from Chargers like I did as they left field today. There is resignation now.

Many San Diego Charger fans have returned to social media outlets such as Facebook and twitter to displace their angry with the San Diego Chargers. The more game the Chargers lose the louder the fans call for Norv to be fired.
The Chargers have 9 players that were injured during tonight’s loss to Baltimore. We have gotten the names of a few of the injured players.
