“We talked about that route in the receiver room – I wanted that route,” Watson said. “Never want to see one of our receivers go down, but (I) just want to assure them that if they have to play off the field, I’ll come in and do my job.”

Why did Watson want that specific route and why was he talking about it in the receiver room?

Watson was hit four times by Tom Brady and on an unfortunate play, he noticed the Chargers’ cornering tendency.

“Two years ago, I played the Chargers, and they were sitting on my out roots – sitting on my out roots,” Watson said. “In that game, I wanted to make a double move – out and up – and it didn’t work out and they ended up taking (an out route) for a pick-six.”

Will Justin Herbert’s Injury Change the AFC Landscape? , the ringer

It was not clear whether the red giant on Justin Herbert’s jersey was paint or blood. Herbert took a hit from Kansas City Chiefs defensive end Mike Danna and stayed down on the field moaning in pain. Everyone watching saw the Simmba within The Lion King, “Come on, Justin, you have to get up…”

Herbert’s injury is being classified by Los Angeles Chargers head coach Brandon Staley as an abdominal or rib injury, which is understandable as it looked like Herbert’s kidney was torn.

The Chargers’ Prince Who Was Promised Herbert reduced the ball to seven points within just six minutes of play. But then Herbert went downstairs, walked over to the sidelines for a play, and saw Kaput when he came back. With more than two minutes left on third and one, Herbert limped, his left hand dangling by his side, and threw the ball away a few yards rather than trying to run down an easy first.

Tackling remains the biggest overall problem. Part of the reason for this is that it is at the start of the season – the one time of year when all teams struggle to deal. but still have to get it very Better – or it will eventually cost team sports. The same goes for punishment in secondary; Cornerback Rashad Fenton had several.

The story of the game – and why the defense was ultimately the unit that helped the team win – was once again a third-bottom defense. The unit has put together two straight weeks of excellent statistical output over the late fall. On Thursday, the Chargers were 5-of-16 at third down. They went 4-for-4 in fourth place, but most of that came too late in the game – when it was almost completely out of reach.
