The San Diego Chargers defeated the Indianapolis Colts at home on Monday night by a score of 19-9. It was a huge win for San Diego as they moved to .500 at 3-3 on the season.
It was especially a good outing for Philip Rivers at quarterback for the Bolts as he was able to lead three scoring drives of at least 74 yards. It was quite the bounceback from the horrid performance he had in his last game against the Oakland Raiders, in which he tossed three interceptions.
So, Rivers naturally had every right to be excited , and he certainly showed it in one of the final drives of the game.
Undoubtedly, the star of the game was the Chargers’ kicker, Nick Novak. He was able to bang through four field goals on the night, proving once again how valuable good special teams play can be at any level.
Novak’s last field goal came with 1:55 left in the game, sealing the deal for that 19-9 final score.
After the kick went thorough the uprights, Rivers displayed how excited he was that the game had been put out of reach:
Philip has every reason to be excited after that victory tonight.
