Los Angeles Chargers hold off Baltimore Ravens to progress in National Football League play-offs

Los Angeles Chargers hold off Baltimore Ravens to progress in National Football League play-offs

"It's the playoffs", Badgley said.

And while at one point it seemed that John Harbaugh could be leaving as well, all indications are that he will be back for a 12th season. But in the playoffs they matter even more. So the fact that we weren't playing maybe the way we wanted to, I just felt for the guys on the team. It's either play my a year ago here and that will be it and enjoy it, or this has been it.

But fast forward to this year, and Badgley has been the soothing balm to the Chargers' kicking woes. The Chargers are nearly guaranteed to not play a single game at home unless the Colts can run through the playoffs themselves and meet Los Angeles in the AFC Championship game.

For all you "FAKE ASS" Raven fans bashing Lamar Jackson and wanting Flacco to play.

With the Chargers spinning through six kickers since the start of the 2017 season, Badgley has brought stability to the position since taking over for Caleb Sturgis midway through the season. The defending champion Philadelphia Eagles advanced when the Chicago Bears' game-winning field goal attempt as time expired hit off the right upright and then bounced off the crossbar and into the end zone. He was the best Chargers defender on the field.

Michael "Money" Badgley sure did live up to his nickname today.

"If he wants me back, I'm here".

Of course, the Cincinnati Bengals are one of those teams.

"Just in the locker room, becoming friends with everybody", Badgley said. The Chargers had done way too much, and the hole was too deep for Jackson to dig the Ravens out of.

"Heck, yeah, it is special", Rivers said after beating the Ravens, as quoted on

Jackson struggled mightily for most of his playoff debut. The Cowboys just draw that big of a crowd, and their dramatic style of play has made for must-see TV. Running back Heath Sherman rushed for 105 yards, 82 of them in the second half, and scored a touchdown. I still have a desire to play and I feel that I can still affect the game and dominate games. "I picked up a pretty good amount". "But I'm happy that we have somebody here that we can count on".

Philip Rivers isn't a great cold-weather quarterback. They rushed for 151 yards behind Willis McGahee and the immortal Le'Ron McClain while forcing five turnovers against a team that introduced the ill-fated, short lived "wildcat offense" that was ultimately faster than a Kevin Spacey Netflix series before it revolutionized pro football.
