On a balmy autumn Sunday, Melvin Gordon rushed for 196 yards and two touchdowns to lead the Chargers in an outburst of scoring that proved to be too much for the visiting Tennessee Titans. Charger quarterback Philip Rivers chipped in 275 passing yards and two touchdowns and a resilient Bolts defense added two defensive scores to top off the points spasm.
Final Score: San Diego Super Chargers – 43, Tennessee Tuxedos – 35
With the victory, the Chargers improved to 4-5 on the season and keep their thin playoff hopes alive. Remember this was a team that was leading in the fourth quarter of three of the first four games, only to lose in a most tragic fashion. The boys in blue could easily be 7-2 and among the division leaders, but alas…they are not.
So, let us turn our attention to the state of the Tennessee Titans. Although their record suggests mediocrity, you can see positive things happening. Second year quarterback Marcus Mariota is showing the tremendous potential that inspired the Titans to draft him second overall in last year’s draft. He threw for 313 yards, three passing touchdowns and had one rushing touchdown. But he also threw two costly interceptions, one a pick six to Charger defensive back Brandon Flowers. However, you could see the promise in the young signal caller.
And the Titans have a good rushing attack with the resurgence of running back DeMarco Murray, the old Dallas cast off. Even though the Chargers held him in check for most of the game, Murray is the second leading rusher in the NFL and I am not too ashamed to say that I am riding him to a fantasy football championship…but I digress. Yes, good things are happening in Tennessee.
But enough football chit chat…bring on the Charger Girl photos. Well…here you go!
Last game, I was able to sneak a few posed photos of two of the Charger Girl lines at the Bud Light Power Party and this week I photographed the other two. Here’s a few teaser images from this week’s shoot.
I’ll post the remainder on my personal blog on Friday.
Well, let’s begin this week’s coverage with the Captains: Bridget, Teran, Marissa, and Delani.
