Kansas City Vs. San Diego: Phillip Rivers Fumbles Snap Before Game Winning Kick, Game Goes To Overtime

San Diego and emerging running back Curtis Brinkley, formerly third on the Chargers' depth chart, had all but nailed the coffin shut on Kansas City on a long, grinding drive to set up a winning field goal. Rivers fumbled the snap on the Kansas City 15-yard-line, on a play assumed to simply center the ball for a pending field goal from Nick Novak

Matt Cassel ran a Chiefs hurry-up offense to try and put Kansas City in field goal range with no timeouts and under a minute remaining, but only got 39 yards downfield before throwing an interception at the San Diego 28-yard-line. The two teams have combined for eight turnovers tonight, tying a league record for most in a game this season.
