Chargers frustrated by lack of consistency and mentality after loss to Broncos

The Los Angeles Chargers regretted not being able to find consistency after losing 28-13 to the Denver Broncos in a duel in the AFC West.

“We win a game, we lose a game; we win, we lose. It makes you wonder where this mentality is, how to capture the mentality in the week and apply it after the wins, “charged running back Austin Ekeler after the loss in Denver.

“I’m not saying relax, but (the feeling) is different after a loss. We are human, we feel the emotions, but we have to find a positive streak, because we are back on the line (to go to the Playoffs or not) ”, he added.

The Chargers have lost four of their last six games and have alternated wins and losses in their last four games and against the Broncos they missed the possibility of regaining the leadership of their division and lagged in the dispute for a playoff berth.

With the reverse, the Chargers (6-5) stayed in second place in the AFC West, in the middle of the game from the Kansas City Chiefs (7-4) and at the moment with the third and last wild card to the Postseason. , that is, the seventh sowing.

Justin Herbert, who was constantly pressured by the Broncos defense, threw for 303 yards after completing 28 of 44 passes with two touchdowns, but suffered two interceptions that were key to Denver securing the win.

“We don’t execute as well as we can. A big thank you to the offensive line, who fought the whole game for giving me the time under pressure, ”shared Herbert. “This is the NFL. You can’t have so many penalties, ball deliveries, long third chances and hope to win the game. “

In their next game, the Chargers will visit the Cincinnati Bengals, who finished their sweep over the Pittsburgh Steelers in 2021 with a beating, in a game with important implications for the AFC Playoffs.

“We have to review the video and learn a lot from this game (against Denver). We have to improve for what is to come, “said Herbert.
