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!

I watched today’s games with a group at a fantastic sports bar. There was a lot going on, with games on multiple screens, so, I missed a few things. One of them was the Philip Rivers interception thrown to Leonard Johnson. I’ve since seen the replay but I had it explained to me by the guy across the table from me as: "He was basically from me to you away (about 5 feet)...

Leonard Johnson was as surprised as anyone when Philip Rivers' ill-advised pass wound up in his hands.

TAMPA, Fla. -- One minute into the game, Tampa Bay Buccaneers cornerback Leonard Johnson looked like the right player for Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers to pick on, but it was the rookie who wound up with the winning pick in a 34-24 win at Raymond James Stadium. Johnson intercepted Rivers' pass intended for wide receiver Eddie Royal and sprinted 83 yards for a touchdown...
An already weak secondary just got a little weaker. Starting cornerback Eric Wright has left the game with an ankle injury and is questionable to return, so say the Bucs.
Philip Rivers has been slicing up this defense, and missing their best cornerback won't help them stop the veteran quarterback. Source: SBNation.com Attached Thumbnails
