The NFL sent two teams to LA this offseason, and the Redskins wasted no time visiting both.
For the second time this season, the Redskins are in Los Angeles; this time, it's to take on the surging Chargers. Having won four of their last six, the Chargers find themselves right in the thick of the AFC title race.
The stakes are somewhat lower for the Redskins, who find themselves playing the role of spoiler today.
So far, the Redskins have released their Inactive List for this afternoon's game.
5:30 PM: The Redskins avoid disaster to end the half, as a Chargers draw play brings them down to the 4 before the clock runs out. At half, it remains Chargers 23, Redskins 6.
5:13 PM: Stop me if you've heard this before. The Chargers kicked another field goal. Chargers 23, Redskins 6.
5:00 PM: Phillip Rivers beats Josh Norman on a long TD, and everything is TheWorst™ again. Chargers 20, Redskins 6
4:53 PM: Hey, a Redskins touchdown! Cousins connects with Vernon Davis and the Redskins are showing signs of life. PAT is no good. Chargers 13, Redskins 6
4:47 PM: Let's take a moment to get a feel for how Redskins media/fans felt that quarter went:
4:43 PM - The Chargers tack on another FG as the 1st quarter expires. The Redskins are probably going to want to forget that quarter happened. Chargers 13, Redskins 0
4:36 PM - On the insuing kickoff, Byron Marshall hurt himself on the return. Then Cousins comes out and immediately throws an interception. *inserts This Is Fine meme*
4:30 PM - Make it 10-0. Chargers march down the field and Rivers throws his first TD of the day. Chargers 10, Redskins 0.
4:22 PM - People are thrilled with the Redskins' offense:
4:12 PM - Well, that was fast. Chargers get a FG and grab an early lead. Chargers 3, Redskins 0
