Titans hit game winning field goal in overtime topping Chargers, 27-24

Los Angeles Chargers head coach, Brandon Staley answered multiple questions after the Chargers would allow the Tennessee Titans to tie the game late in the fourth quarter and convert on a 41-yard field goal in overtime. This would bring the Chargers record to 0-2 after dropping their first game to the Miami Dolphins in Week 1. When asked about certain situations during the game being similar to last season’s playoff loss against the Jacksonville Jaguars, Staley emphasized, “This has nothing to do with last year’s loss. We are a different team. From training camp to preseason to last week and now this week we fought. Nothing we have done is a direct effect from last year’s playoff game.”

Los Angeles Chargers mirrored the Titans with total yards 342 to Tennessee’s 341. Chargers’ fans can take comfort in the fact that Los Angeles did not turn the ball over. Several factors lead to the late game comeback for the Titans, and one can be confirmed as the Chargers went 2 of 14 on 3rd down efficiency that allowed Tennessee to drive with ball possession when needed. Justin Herbert passed for 305 yards on 27 of 41 completions and threw for 2 touchdowns. Wide receiver Keenan Allen had a breakout game catching 2 touchdowns for 111 yards on 8 completions. Tennessee improved to 1-1 and got stellar play from running back Derrick Henry, rushing for 80 yards on 25 carries and 1 touchdown. The wideout group for Titans combined for 20 receptions for 246 yards and 1 touchdown helping quarterback Ryan Tannehill 20 for 24 completions for 246 yards and no turnovers. The Titans now travel to Cleveland to take on the Browns next Sunday. Something will give on Sunday as the battle of two 0-2 teams play Sunday when the Chargers visit the Minnesota Vikings that are both 0-2.
