The Los Angeles Chargers’ season has not gone as smoothly as hoped. In Chicago on Sunday, that took on another look.
During the Chargers’ third drive of the game, Philip Rivers threw an interception that Kyle Fuller nearly returned for a Bears touchdown. It was the third play of the drive after the Chargers lost a yard and gained 2 back from their own 23-yard line. Fuller was downed at the 4.
The interception was Rivers’ seventh of the season.
It was then that cameras focused on Rivers going back to his sideline and exchanging heated words with head coach Anthony Lynn. At one point, Lynn gives him a small point as he’s walking away and Rivers points right back, more forcefully.

The chatter seemed to stem from a missed penalty call that Rivers was advocating for down the field on Keenan Allen. When a referee came over to speak with Lynn, Rivers came back into the fray that also included Allen on the left side.
The Chargers defense held the Bears to a field goal on the ensuing drive which proved critical as they held on, thanks to a missed Eddy Pineiro field goal on the game’s final play, to win 17-16.
