SAN DIEGO (AP) — For the second time this season, the Chargers lost after allowing an opponent to score on its last possession. Coach Mike McCoy is exhorting the Chargers not to put themselves in situations where they can happen again.
San Diego had the Titans pinned back on their own 7-yard line with just over 2 minutes left and no time outs but lost 20-17 Sunday after allowing Tennessee to drive to the clinching score, a 34-yard touchdown pass from Jake Locker to rookie Justin Hunter with 15 seconds left.
McCoy said Monday that he told his team not to get to the point where the defense is forced to make a stop late to preserve the game.
