Melvin Gordon and the Los Angeles Chargers had nothing to play for late of their Week 17 matchup with the Denver Broncos. Because of the Kansas Metropolis Chiefs and their destruction of the Oakland Raiders, LA knew its sport was meaningless early within the third quarter. Regardless of that, the Chargers left their starters within the sport effectively into the fourth quarter. They paid the value.
On a run early within the fourth quarter, Gordon went down awkwardly on a sort out and needed to depart the sport. He limped to the sideline and didn’t return. His leg was being checked out on the sideline.
Gordon had been coping with a knee damage for a number of weeks, so it’s unclear if he reaggravated it or if that is one thing new. One factor we all know this was? Silly. There was no purpose for him to be within the sport.
The Chargers entered Week 17 with a small likelihood to win the AFC West and clinch home-field benefit all through the playoffs. For that to occur they needed to win and the Chiefs needed to lose to the Raiders.
The Chiefs have been up 21-Three on the half and 28-Three with eight:33 left within the third quarter. Once more, the Chargers knew that and stored their starters in. Even when Gordon escapes a serious damage it was a dumb resolution. It was an absurd threat in a meaningless state of affairs.
