Trailing the Buccaneers 24-21 in the third quarter, the Chargers were driving with an opportunity to at least tie the game. On a third down, Marmalard was running toward the sideline to escape the rush. Instead of running or throwing the ball out of bounds and taking a field goal attempt, Rivers opted to force a float directly to Leonard Johnson, who had been standing upfield ready to make a play. Apparently Laserface’s powers include phasing floats through defenders. Not this time, as Johnson caught the pass jammed into his chest and returned it 83 yards to put Tampa up two scores going into the 4th quarter.
WHAT? HUH? WHAT? DERP!
