San Diego Chargers at Philadelphia Eagles final score: Chargers win 33-30 with late FG


There was a lot of offense and little defense. In the end, the Chargers just had more in them. Watching the game, I couldn’t help but notice a little odd strategy from the Eagles’ coach Chip Kelly right before the Chargers went for the kick to win the game. Speaking of Kelly, it was his first loss as an NFL coach as the Eagles won last week.

Here’s a look at some performances for the teams:

Still, Michael Vick, LeSean McCoy and DeSean Jackson continued their offensive prowess. Vick threw for 422 yards, while Jackson had nine catches for 193 yards and a touchdown, and McCoy had 114 yards receiving and 53 yards rushing.

Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers was 36 of 47 for 419 yards and three touchdowns, all of them to wide receiver Eddie Royal who finished with seven catches for 90 yards. Rivers didn’t throw any interceptions.

Yeah, a lot of offense and little defense was the driving force of this entertaining game. Both teams look good and that’s all you can ask for, right?
