🏈 Chargers 17, Titans 14 — FINAL

Cameron Dicker’s 43-yard field goal with four seconds remaining lifted the Chargers to a 17-14 victory over Tennessee on Sunday at SoFi Stadium.

The Titans had pulled even moments earlier when Ryan Tannehill scored on a one-yard sneak with 48 seconds to go.

The Titans, who had done little on offense since early in the second quarter, went 74 yards in 11 plays.

After the ensuing kickoff, the Chargers took over possession at their own 23-yard line.

Out of timeouts, Justin Herbert directed the Chargers into position for Dicker’s second game-winning kick of the season.

The biggest play was a 35-yard completion to Mike Williams.

The Chargers improved to 8-6 and moved back into a playoff spot in the AFC. They travel to play at Indianapolis for a Monday night game Dec. 26

Herbert completed 28 of 42 attempts for 313 yards, with two interceptions. Keenan Allen caught eight passes for 86 yards and Williams made four catches for 67 yards.

Austin Ekeler finished with 58 yards and a touchdown in 12 carries.

Tannehill was sacked four times and left the game for several minutes in the first half because of injury. He returned and completed 15 of 22 passes for 165 yards, with an interception. Derrick Henry rushed for 104 yards and a touchdown in 21 carries.
