During their Monday Night Football matchup against the New Orleans Saints, the Los Angeles Chargers were trolled by ESPN using a hilarious graphic that highlighted their inability to win close games over the past couple seasons.
These statistics came as no surprise to NFL fans, as the Chargers have built a reputation for "turning losing into an art form". It means they compete down to the wire in almost every game they play, but ultimately lose at the end of it.
The Chargers were up 20-3 late in the second quarter of Monday's game before they gave up the lead and eventually lost in overtime 30-27. It was the Chargers' league-leading fourth one-score loss this season and 13th since the start of last season.
The graphic was used perfectly during this broadcast. As soon as the Saints started to come back, ESPN threw this on the air and you couldn't help but chuckle as the two Chargers players jumped and clawed trying to reach for the "W".
The Chargers can't keep doing this forever, can they? Who knows. We'll see what happens in the their next game as they host the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 7 NFL action.
