Mistakes keep Chargers in the game
SAN DIEGO -- Another Atlanta fumble has allowed the Chargers to storm back into this game.
Atlanta receiver Brian Finneran fumbled inside the San Diego red zone. The ball was picked up by Chargers safety Eric Weddle who ran 86 yards for the touchdown. San Diego tried to a two-pointer but failed. Atlanta leads 15-13.
The Chargers' other touchdown Sunday came after an Atlanta punt return fumble inside its own 20.
Atlanta is dominating play but it can't pull away. In addition to the two costly fumbles, Atlanta had two missed touchdown passes in the first quarter (it had to settle for field goals on both drives) and it was stopped at the 1-yard line in the final minute of the first half.
