Lambo's field goal as time expires lifts Bolts over Browns

SAN DIEGO (AP) -- San Diego Chargers rookie Josh Lambo pushed a 39-yard field-goal attempt wide right with 2 seconds left and the Cleveland Browns jumped up and down, thinking they'd forced overtime.

WATCH: Chargers Allen miraculously stays in-bounds on this TD

Keenan Allen belongs to a Chargers' wide receiving corps that calls itself "The Aliens."But Allen might actually be an otherworldly being. It'd explain why the rules of gravity didn't apply to him when hauling this touchdown in against the Cleveland Browns on Sunday.

Cleveland Browns (1-2) at San Diego Chargers (1-2) The Chargers are 1-2, but their losses both came on the road against Cincinnati and Minnesota, a pair of solid teams.

**** Norv 2

There wasn’t as much “Norv beat the Chargers” talk as I feared after Sunday’s game.  I did respond to a Tweet I saw by Merriman suggesting that Norv was doing a great job against his old team.  Norv had nothing to with that game.  No one has ever disputed that he’s a good coordinator.  He’s just a ****** coach.  The same can be said for Wade Phillips (who is once...

Chargers could be missing four starting offensive linemen in Week 4

Don’t expect that trend to be reversed on Sunday when the 1-2 Bolts welcome the 1-2 Cleveland Browns to town. As of Friday afternoon it looks like the Chargers could be missing as many as four starting offensive linemen...

Chargers QB Philip Rivers to challenge struggling Browns defense

The Cleveland Browns defense has had a rough start to the 2015 season, and things don’t figure to get any easier as they get set to square off against Philip Rivers and the Chargers in San Diego. Rivers, the No. 4 overall pick of the 2004 draft, isn’t quite in the super-duper-top tier of quarterbacks like Tom Brady and Aaron Rodgers, but he has been among the league’s best...

Anyone that watched Wisconsin play last season knows how good a running back Melvin Gordon is. Of course, whether his talents would translate to the NFL remain to be seen until the regular season starts. He didn't exactly light it up in the preseason, but he didn't play much either.
