SAN DIEGO (AP) -- With the ball in Doug Flutie's hands, his San Diego teammates thought they couldn't lose.The Chargers, trailing by four points in their grudge match against the Buffalo Bills, knew they were about to win.
Doug Flutie dives into the end zone for the winning TD, giving the Chargers QB a win against his former team.
Flutie might be the happiest guy between San Diego and Buffalo. What makes it especially sweet for the ex-Bills quarterback is that he was able bring the Chargers back and win it with less than two minutes on a gutty touchdown run. That sort of rubbed it in the Bills' faces a bit.
The Chargers are happy, too -- they've now won two straight after losing two in a row, stretching their record to 5-2.
ESPN.com NFL analyst Vinny Cerrato has served as director of player personnel for the Redskins and 49ers.
Flutie kept the ball after his run, just his sixth NFL rushing touchdown. ... Chargers star LB Junior Seau sat out much of the fourth quarter as a precaution because of a week-old groin injury. But he returned on Buffalo's final drive. ... Chargers DBs Rodney Harrison and Ryan McNeil, and RB LaDainian Tomlinson were injured during the game, but returned.
