The Los Angeles Chargers pulled off an impressive last-second victory in Week 12 against the Arizona Cardinals. With just 15 seconds remaining in the game, Justin Hebert threw a 1-yard touchdown pass to Austin Ekeler, bringing the Chargers to within one point.

Instead of going for the extra point and the tie, Chargers head coach Brandon Staley decided to go for two points and the win. They converted to the 2-point conversion and the Chargers walked out of Arizona with a win and a 6-5 record.

Staley had a great quote about the 2-point conversion that won the game, he said it was "smooth like chocolate milk."

Staley also said:

"We came here to win. We're just living week to week. It was about this game for us and pouring into this game and doing what we felt like was going to win us the football game."

You have to respect a coach that takes that gamble, that relies on his players to make a play when the game is on the line.

Now, Los Angeles gets ready to head to Las Vegas for a Week 13 game against the Raiders, where the Chargers are a 2.5-point road favorite, according to FanDuel Sportsbook's latest NFL odds.
