Another blocked punt for San Diego

By Bill Williamson

SAN DIEGO -- It took San Diego's special teams a minute and 29 seconds to betray the Chargers Sunday.

Tennessee blocked a Mike Scifres punt and the ball flew out of the end zone for a safety. The Titans lead, 2-0. It was the fourth time a San Diego punt was blocked this season. In his six previous seasons, Scifres had one punt blocked. San Diego is on its fifth long snapper of the season after going the past 17 seasons with David Binn, who tore his hamstring in Week 1. The San Diego crowd booed loudly when Scrifres had the punt blocked.

Special teams have killed San Diego all season long. The Chargers are 2-5 despite leading the NFL in offense and defense.
