Chargers Lose a Close Game in Miami 20-16

It’s getting more difficult for the San Diego Chargers (4-6) to make the playoffs after Sunday’s loss to the Miami Dolphins (5-5). Phillip Rivers and the Chargers had a chance to win the game as time expired, but Miami defensive back Brent Grimes swiped the ball away to make sure that didn’t happen.

Though they couldn’t muster up as many points as the Dolphins, the Chargers outgained the home team 435 to 343 yards. Phillip Rivers was 22 of 34 for 298 yards and one touchdown and an interception. Tight end Ladarius Green led San Diego receivers with four catches for 81 yards. Antonio Gates scored San Diego’s only touchdown on a five-yard catch.

The Chargers continued to find success on the ground. Ryan Matthews ran for 127 yards on 19 carries. In total, San Diego rushed for 154 yards. Kicker Nick Novak chipped in by going 3 for 3 on field goals.

The San Diego defense sacked opposing quarterback Ryan Tannehill four times, but couldn’t contain tight end Charles Clay. Clay had six receptions for 90 yards and a touchdown. Miami’s other touchdown came on a one-yard run by Daniel Thomas.

Up next for the Chargers is a tough divisional matchup at Kansas City (9-1) on Sunday, November 24. San Diego is tied for last in the AFC West division with the Oakland Raiders (4-6). The Chiefs are tied with the Denver Broncos (9-1) for first place.

Cardinals Beat the Jaguars to Stay in NFC Wildcard Hunt

At 800LoanMart, we know online title loans as well as many retired football players know the NFL.

The Cardinals (6-4) stayed very much alive in the playoff hunt with a 27-14 over the lowly Jacksonville Jaguars (1-9). Arizona quarterback Carson Palmer played a great game, throwing for 419 yards and two touchdowns on 30 of 42 passing attempts. More importantly, Palmer did not throw an interception.

Receiver Michael Floyd had a monster day, racking up 193 yards receiving on six catches. Ninety-one of those yards came on a slant pass that went for a touchdown in the third quarter. Larry Fitzgerald chipped in with one touchdown catch and 61 yards receiving.

Arizona didn’t have much going on in the ground game, only notching 14 total yards on a combined 24 carries between Rashard Mendenhall, Andre Ellington, and Palmer. Mendenhall did have a five-yard touchdown run, though.

After giving up 14 points in the first quarter, the Cardinals D shut out the Jaguars the rest of the game. Arizona held Jacksonville to only 274 total yards. Jerraud Powers and Yeremiah Bell both had interceptions. Powers also led the team in total tackles with six. John Abraham and Calais Campbell had a sack each as the Arizona D held Jacksonville to 4.6 yards per play.

The Cardinals are now tied with the San Francisco 49ers (6-4) for second place in the NFC West, 3.5 games behind the Seattle Seahawks (10-1). The Cardinals are also tied with the 49ers for the last NFC Wildcard playoff spot.

Up next for Arizona is a matchup at home against the Indianapolis Colts (7-3) on Sunday, November 24.
