Chargers’ Michael Davis makes wild interception in back-and-forth game with Bengals

Published

on

CINCINNATI — A potential touchdown turned into a big turnover for the Cincinnati Bengals.

In the first quarter of Sunday’s game against the Los Angeles Chargers, Bengals quarterback Joe Burrow threw a deep ball to wide receiver Ja’Marr Chase down the sideline with Chargers cornerback Michael Davis trailing behind Chase.

From there, it all went south for Cincinnati. Chase bobbled the pass and deflected it behind him, which allowed Davis to not only make up the distance between them but also give him a chance at an interception.

When the two players went to the ground to pluck the ball out of the air, Davis was the one holding it. He gave the Chargers their second turnover in as many defensive drives and compounded Cincinnati’s woes in a game with playoff implications.

For Chase it was the sixth drop of the season and the second that resulted in an interception, according to ESPN Stats & Info.

Things got worse from there for the Bengals. The Chargers turned the turnover into points when quarterback Justin Herbert found Keenan Allen for a 7-yard touchdown pass, giving Los Angeles a 16-0 lead with 1:34 left in the first quarter.

The Chargers extended their lead to 24-0 after a trick play in which Allen found Herbert for 2-point conversion.

Turnovers on three straight possesions by the Chargers allowed the Bengals to claw back to within 24-22 when Cincinnati running back Joe Mixon scored midway through the third quarter.

But a fumble by Mixon at the start of the fourth quarter allowed the Chargers to extend their lead again. It was the sixth turnover of the game.

Los Angeles Chargers lose star DE Joey Bosa in second half with potential head injury

Published

on

Los Angeles Chargers defensive end Joey Bosa, long considered the best defender on the team, left the game vs. the Cincinnati Bengals Sunday.

Bosa was being evaluated for a head injury he suffered in the second half as the Chargers attempted to hold off a Bengals’ rally.

Bosa has battled injuries through much of his career, and usually plays through them. This one was a different story, and the Chargers defense struggled in the third quarter without him.

This season, the 6-foot-6, 280-pound Bosa has 36 solo tackles and 19 assists to go along with 7.5 sacks. In his absence, Kyler Fackrel took over. No further word on Bosa was immediately available.

The Chargers, at one point up 24-0 over the Bengals, saw their lead shrink to 24-22 in the third.
