The San Diego Chargers lost, 20-16, to the Miami Dolphins Sunday.
All losses are bad, but falling to the Fins was especially harsh considering what was at stake.
Announcer Dan Dierdorf summed it up nicely near the end of the second quarter.
“The loser of this game is looking to run the table to make the playoffs,” the Hall of Fame offensive lineman said. “That’s unlikely.”
Miami (5-5) is right in the thick of the playoff hunt, while the Chargers (4-6) are most probably out of postseason contention.
It really was an ugly game for San Diego, and the scoreboard showed which team played better and which struggled.
