Chargers block Redskins’ field goal attempt (GIF)


As week 9 gets underway, we are already seeing great plays, and for the most part, we’re only through one quarter of the early games. That means there’s still plenty of great, or greater, plays to be made.

Take the game between the San Diego Chargers and Washington Redskins for example. The Chargers started with the ball, but only had the ball for just under three and a half minutes. Meanwhile, when it was Washington’s turn to drive the ball to the end zone, they spent over nine minutes only to get within field goal range of scoring. As Kai Forbath went for the kick, the ball was blocked by the Chargers’ defense. Check out the play here.

That block has kept the game scoreless as of now, but there’s still three quarters left to play. I have a feeling that if these games will have a lot more in store in the coming hours.
