2010 Look Back – Chargers Now 2-5 After Tough Loss to Pats



In today’s 2010 look back, the Chargers dropped to 2-5 after a tough 23-20 loss to the Pats that could be summed up in one word – Turnovers.

The Chargers’ defense was sensation. The special teams wasn’t too shabby considering some of their past performances. The offense put up more yards than  a pretty consistent New England Patriots offense could. So what went wrong that forced the Chargers to lose to the Patriots 20-23 and fall to 2-5 on the season?

Turnovers!

The Chargers turned the ball over four times in their first six possessions. Three fumbles and one interception, all before half time.

Two of the Chargers’ lost fumbles were simply knuckle-headed plays. Richard Goodman caught a 25-yard pass and fell to the ground. After falling to the ground, he put the ball down without being touched and the ball was consequently picked up by Patriot safety James Sanders. The next drive, Rivers threw a short pass to fullback Jacob Hester who was swinging out of the backfield. Rivers threw the ball backwards, making it a lateral.
