It’s one thing to lose to the Saints and Broncos, they’ve at least been good the last few decades.

But the Chargers have sunk to a new low, losing 7-6 to the Browns Sunday, the kind of game, frankly, that makes you wonder if people are getting fired.

The Browns were able to run well (133 yards) against what was the league’s second-ranked run defense, improving to 2-6 on the season. Trent Richardson, playing with painful ribs, had 122 yards and a touchdown on 24 carries.

Meanwhile, the Chargers managed to do not much at all.

After coughing up late leads against both Denver and New Orleans, the Chargers are clearly in a desperate spot, dropping to 3-4.
