A comical event happened near the end of Denver’s 30-23 victory over San Diego on Sunday afternoon. Down by just one score with time still on the clock (0:17 before the play and 0:08 after the play), Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers walked off the field after being sacked by Denver’s Elvis Dumervil—eliminating any chance of stopping the game clock. With all of his receivers down field, it would have been hard for Rivers to get the offense back to the line of scrimmage in time to stop the clock, but with a competitive nature, it’s a little surprising that he wasn’t even compelled to get it a try. After being sacked four times, fumbling three times and throwing two interceptions, maybe Rivers wasn’t compelled to do anything but get off the field.  And that he did.
