Monday night felt like the same old story with a little more hope than usual. On one hand, the Chargers clawed themselves out of a self-inflicted cave that, at one point, only seemed like Talia al Ghul could climb out of. On the other, it was the same old conservative offense, bend and hope it doesn’t break defense, and clusterf*ck special teams. Let’s start with the 3 bad bounces that completely turn the game around for the Chargers.

For a guy like Casey Hayward, there’s no explanation for dropping an interception right in his hands. If you’re making a list, you won’t find 5 corners in the league with better ball skills. Yet:
That takes place at 10:55 in the 1st quarter. If he catches that, he trots into the end zone. More importantly, Trevor Sieman goes into a shell. He’s not taking any chances the rest of the game.
