55 degrees, clear skies
• The Chargers scored a touchdown on their opening possession of the game. Credit to their game planning for this initial script.
• Chargers exhibited some errors with game clock management, specifically needing to use a timeout early in the second half and committing a delay of game midway through the third quarter.
Key Coaching Decision:
• Cleveland attempted to convert a Fourth & 2 from the opponent 23-yard line at 2:25 left in the first half instead of kicking a field goal and taking the points. They were only down 14-3 at the time. This decision did not have a proper risk to reward ratio and resulted in leaving points on the board and providing Los Angeles with a significant momentum swing.
