Three key plays from the San Diego Chargers’ Week 6 win you may have missed

The Chargers improved to 5-1 on the season and an overlying theme with the team this year is not only the capability of finishing off games but also doing the little things to win.  Here are three examples of small but yet important plays the Chargers made on Sunday in their 31-28 win in Oakland.  While it is easy to point at the significant plays like Jason Verrett’s interception...
