NFL: San Diego Chargers win 9 straight

By Kristofor Molson     Dec 20, 2009 in Sports
The San Diego Chargers keep on trucking as they hold on to a win over the Cincinnati Bengals to hold on to second place in the conference.
The Cincinnati Bengals came into Qualcomm Stadium with heavy hearts to face the San Diego Chargers. After the death of fellow receiver Chris Henry the Bengals dedicated this season to them. The San Diego Chargers were trying to keep sole possession of the number two seed in the American Football Conference.
The San Diego Chargers took the opening kick off and drove down the field to score the first touchdown of the game. Philip Rivers threw a 3 yard touchdown pass to tight end Antonio Gates. The Bengals put three points on the board with a Shayne Graham 2 yard field goal.
The second quarter was more action packed as each team scored on big passing plays. Bengals' quarterback Carson Palmer threw a 49 yard touchdown pass to Chad Ochocinco and Philip Rivers threw a 29 yard pass to his big time receiver Vincent Jackson for a 14-10 lead.
The Chargers looked like they had the game in hand as they were the only team to score in the third quarter with another Vincent Jackson touchdown and added a Nate Kaeding 33 yard field goal, but things changed in the fourth quarter. The Bengals scored a touchdown and a two point conversion and also later kicked a 33 yard field goal to tie the game at 24 with under a minute left in the game.
Philip Rivers ran the two minute drill to perfection marching the Chargers down the field to allow kicker Nate Kaeding to kick a game winning field goal. The Chargers pulled out a 27-24 win to win their ninth straight game.
Philip Rivers completed 24 of 38 passes for 308 yards 3 touchdowns and 2 interceptions. Wide receiver Vincent Jackson caught 5 balls for 108 yards and 2 touchdowns.
