WR Keenan Allen frustrated that Chargers lose games due to mistakes of their own

Keenan Allen has seen this movie several times before, and the Los Angeles Chargers wide receiver said he was frustrated that history was repeating itself as he fell 27-24 at home to the New England Patriots.

The setback against Bill Belichick and company is the second that the Chargers suffer (4-3) in a row.

“What frustrates me is that it is the same every year,” Allen lamented with obvious annoyance after the meeting. “We kick ourselves in, over and over again. The Patriots didn’t do anything out of the ordinary to beat us. We had a lot of fouls ”.

Allen, who had six receptions for 77 yards and a touchdown, expressed his frustration after a game in which the Chargers dropped several passes, committed penalties at key moments and lost the ball twice.

After entering the season 4-1, the Chargers were clearly outscored by the Baltimore Ravens in Week 6 and after a week off, they lost to the Patriots, who made quarterback Justin Herbert look bad for the second year in a row.

“I am not worried. Of course I would have liked our performance to be better, but we have to do a better job as coaches, as players, ”said Brandon Staley, coach of the Los Angeles team. “When you play good teams, there will be games like that. We must execute better on offense, as it was seen in the first series, we must be consistent with the rhythm ”.

In the last two games, Herbert has not been as fine as he was at the start of the season. Against the Patriots, he finished with 18 of 35 completions for 223 yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions, the latter at the hands of former Chargers player Adrian Phillips, who returned the second 26 yards for a touchdown to put, after the conversion. from two points, 24-17 ahead of New England with 10:11 left.

“It was a difficult game on offense. I gave the ball too much, you can’t do that and hope to win in this league, especially against a good team, which is solid in all three aspects, ”Herbert acknowledged. “The defense did a great job stopping them and we fell short.”

The Chargers will look to get back on the winning track next Sunday when they visit the Philadelphia Eagles.
