In Week 8, the Chargers wasted a 21-point lead against the Denver Broncos.
The blown weights plagued the Bolts throughout the first half of the season, with four of their first five losses with double-digit collapses. All six of their losses in 2020 were decided by possession.
In Week 9, Los Angeles ended up with two chances to score a winning touchdown on the Raiders 4-yard line. On the first attempt, Mike Williams couldn’t catch Justin Herbert’s fade in the corner of the end zone. On the second attempt, Donald Parham initially appeared to come down with the catch. But after an examination, officials determined the ball had come loose and touched the ground.
“I thought it was a touchdown, but they knocked it down,” Lynn he told me.
The loss drops Lynn’s record with the Chargers to 28-28, with 20 of his losses by a score or less.
“We’re very close, and it’s probably one of the toughest parts,” Herbert told reporters after the game, according to Daniel Popper de l’Athletic.
The Chargers will take a 2-6 record in Week 10, when they meet the booming Miami Dolphins.
