This past Sunday, the Kansas City Chiefs came to town to battle the San Diego Chargers. The game was originally scheduled to be a prime time affair, but it was “flexed” to a 1:05 pm kickoff to reflect the won loss records of both teams.
How was the contest? It was a one sided affair with the visiting Chiefs dominating the host Chargers in all phases of the game. It was perhaps, a wise choice for the NFL decision makers to move this game from a national prime time telecast to a more modest viewing audience as this game was a stinker through and through.
Final Score: Chiefs – 33, Chargers – 3
With the loss, the Chargers moved into a tie with the Tennessee Titans and the Cleveland Browns for the honor of being the worst team in the NFL. At least the Chargers will get a high draft pick for this season’s efforts.
The only consolation for the die hard Charger fans in attendance…the hottest dance team in the NFL, your Charger Girls!
With the flexing of this game, a night game became a day game and the late November date posed some problems with the lighting. As the game started, there was some direct sunlight which gave way to a mix of shade and spotty sunlight which was succeeded by direct shade with strong back lighting in the fourth quarter…all of which led to some inconsistent and challenging shooting conditions. Geez, I would have preferred the consistent dim light of a prime time game to this and who knows, perhaps the Chargers would have played better at night.
Okay, enough misery. Let’s get on with the fun stuff and begin this week’s coverage with the Captains: Kayla, Tina, Tawnie, and Katelyn.
The Charger Girl of the Day honor goes to the cheerleader who game me the most memorable photos and it is somewhat of a rarity that a girl wins this award more than once in a season, but indeed we have a two time winner this week…introducing Delani…a two time Charger Girl of the Day.
