    After a loss last week to the Raiders the Chargers playoff hopes have all but been eliminated, However, the team showed up on Sunday to play hard for their third year HC Danny Ski who's job is very uncertain at this point.

    The game began shaky for the Bolts after a sack-fumble recovery for a TD was the first points on the board but they would answer back with a long drive ending in a Malcom Floyd TD catch to tie it up at 7 a piece. After an untimely interception by Andy Dalton the Chargers got the ball with great field position to add another passing TD to Aaron Hernandez making it 14-7 Chargers lead. The following drive would be the Bengals best drive of the day which took off 7 minutes of clock with a nice mix of run/pass, keeping the Chargers on their toes the whole time and ending in a Jones-Drew TD run (14-14). The Chargers got the ball back with a little under 2 minutes and all their time-outs and drove the ball down field well but were faced with a tough decision on second down with 11 seconds left on the clock and no time-outs.... They were on the 15 yard line and HC Danny Ski gambled and decided to go for a quick end-zone pass and settle for a FG if need be but with the Bengals strong pass rush (5 sacks) for the day it was a risky call! It paid off with another Aaron Hernandez TD making it 14-21 Chargers lead going into the half.

    The second half was pretty one sided with the Chargers adding on an additional 17 points while holding the Bengals scoreless. Once the Chargers started pulling away the Bengals got one dimensional and didn't have much success. However, their day was plagued with some awful play by the number one receive A.J. Green who had two huge drops as well as a few end-zone drops by other players in the second half. GG Bobibblesackin, glad we got this game in. And it was nice talking to you during the game! Good luck the rest of the season. Final Score: Bengals: 14 Chargers: 38

    Player of the Game: Phillip Rivers had a tremendous day completing 24 out of 28 passes and 5 TD's 0 int's to lead his team to a victory.
