Last-Second Missed Field Goal Leads Chargers Home Opener Loss to Dolphins

Last-Second Missed Field Goal Leads Chargers Home Opener Loss to Dolphins”

The kick sailed wide right, although the Chargers Cannon was sacked off in celebration as its operator thought the kick was good.

The South Korean-born kicker found himself in the same position here with five seconds left on the clock in the fourth quarter, but this time he put his effort from an identical distance wide and the Dolphins held on.

The Dolphins were playing for the first time since August 31 when they defeated the Minnesota Vikings 30-9 in a preseason game.

It's been a heartbreaking start to Younghoe Koo's feel-good story.

Antonio Gates for the Chargers on a 17-yard touchdown pass, which helped him set an National Football League record for tight ends with his 112th career touchdown. Their planned season opener last Sunday against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Miami Gardens, Florida was postponed because of Hurricane Irma. Neither team committed a turnover. Jay Ajayi, who picked up where he left off last season by rushing for over 100 yards, started the drive with a 10-yard run.

On Saturday, Miami Dolphins linebacker Lawrence Timmons went AWOL and according to reports, caused the team to file a missing person's report. While the team didn't have a lead in Week 1 against the Broncos at any point, the Chargers rallied and had a chance to tie. The Wisconsin product rushed nine times for a total of 13 yards and one touchdown. Parkey, claimed off waivers from Cleveland on September 3, is now 6-for-6 in his career on field goals of 50 yards or longer. Philip Rivers carved up the Miami defense for 331 yards and three players had at least seven receptions. The Dolphins were aided by a 15-yard unnecessary roughness penalty against Chargers safety Tre Boston.
