The Los Angeles Chargers hosted the Kansas City Chiefs in Mexico City’s Azteca Stadium for Monday Night Football. It was a relatively close game as all world quarterback Patrick Mahomes had another mediocre game, but that was okay because the Chargers’ Philip Rivers had a horrible game and that was the difference in the game.
Rivers threw his fourth interception of the game with 1:35 left on the clock to seal the victory for the Chiefs.
Final score: Chiefs – 24, Chargers – 17.
With the loss, the Chargers fall to 4 – 7 and their playoff hopes are all but gone. Depressing news…so let’s change the narrative and take a look at some Charger Girl images from Mexico City. Click here to view the Chargers images from last Monday.
The unexpected happened last Sunday as the Los Angeles Chargers thoroughly dominated the visiting Green Bay Packers for a 26 – 11 victory. It wasn’t that the Chargers won the game that was so unexpected. No, it was they way in which the Chargers won that was so surprising. A dominating defense held the vaunted Packers offense to a season worst performance largely by limiting Aaron Rodgers and holding them to a meager 45 yards rushing. Additionally, the Chargers offense was able to move the ball effectively against the Packers all day long, scoring two touchdowns and four field goals.
This was also the Chargers’ Salute to Service celebration and the Charger Girls wore their traditional military themed uniforms, the absolute best in the NFL, to honor the occasion. Click here to view the Chargers gallery of images from last Sunday.
It was another tough outing for the struggling Chargers. This week, it was the Pittsburgh Steelers that gave the boys in blue all they wanted and more. And to make things worse, the number of Steelers fans in attendance made last Sunday feel like a home game in Pittsburgh.
Nothing like kicking the Chargers when they’re down. The Steelers had the audacity to start their third string quarterback against the Bolts and he acquitted himself well enough to deliver the victory for the visitors.
Final score: Steelers – 24, Chargers – 17.
If things don’t start improving soon for the Chargers, the season will be lost. But let us not dwell on the negative and, instead, focus on the positive…the Charger Girls. Click here to view the Chargers gallery of images from last Sunday’s game.
The Los Angeles Chargers hosted the visiting Denver Broncos this past Sunday, hoping to end a recent string of poor performances. Only a victory over the winless Miami Dolphins last week offered any hope for a return to past winning ways, but those hopes were dashed when the Broncos defeated the Chargers, 20 – 13.
To say this season has been a disappointment would be an understatement as most Charger fans had high expectations coming off of last season’s success. The reality is that a close victory over the Andrew Luck-less Colts is the only quality win on the resume and three losses to middle of the pack teams does not bode well for the Chargers, who had hopes of playoff success.
But enough misery. Let’s turn our attention to something eminently more positive…your Los Angeles Charger Girls. Click here to view the Chargers gallery of images from Week 5.
One of the preseason favorites to contend for the AFC title was the Los Angeles Chargers, who looked to build upon strong 2018 season. Things were looking good for the boys in blue until a hold out by standout running back Melvin Gordon seemed to forebode bad tidings. It’s never a good thing for your All Pro running back to hold out and for whatever reason, the Chargers haven’t been close to the team they were last year, starting off with a 1-1 record.
Make that a 1-2 record as the Chargers woes continued in Week 3, when the Houston Texans defeated the home team, 28 – 20.
At least Los Angeles has the Charger Girls. Click here to view the Charger gallery of images from last Sunday.
The cosmic balance in the world was disrupted last Sunday when the Charger Girls debuted new alternate uniforms. Now, I am a firm believer that the traditional Charger Girl uniform is a classic and you don’t mess with something that successful. So I was a little confused and disappointed when I saw these new alternate uniforms. To me, they seem more appropriate and similar to practice attire that I have seen on other NFL squads, but I suspect this is a just a part of a trend in the NFL.
These new alternate uniforms are lacking in the glamour department in my opinion, but then again, I am not a big fan of the color rush uniforms the players wear. That’s just me.
I will let you judge for yourself. Click here to view the Chargers gallery of images from last Sunday and I encourage you to post your thoughtful and reasoned comments below.
