Chargers set off celebratory cannon after losing to Dolphins
The Chargers faced a similar situation Sunday that they experienced a week ago. Kicker Younghoe Koo was set up to hit a game-winning field goal with time running out.
Unfortunately for the Los Angeles team, Koo missed the would-be game-winning kick for the second week in a row. It was a close call, though. The ball looked like it might sneak inside the goal post again before eventually going outside.
To top off the embarrassment, the “Chargers Cannon” was accidentally set off as if Koo had made the kick.
As for Koo, he has won over fans with his name and his trick-shot kicks, but so far he hasn’t worked out for the Chargers. He’s missed potential game-winning kicks two weeks straight, and is just 1 for 4 kicking on the season.
C.J. Anderson, RB, Denver Broncos: After he carried the football 20-plus times in each of the first two weeks and had 30.4 PPR fantasy points in Week 2, Anderson saw his carry total shrink to eight and his PPR fantasy point total to 6.3 on Sunday. Additionally, Jamaal Charles ran nine times and had 12.7 PPR fantasy points, resuming the debate about a potential timeshare between the two. Anderson was started in 89.3 percent of ESPN leagues.
Jeremy Maclin, WR, Ravens: Where Flacco’s score goes, Maclin’s will follow. After consecutive games of 13-plus PPR fantasy points to begin his Ravens career, Maclin managed just 1.8 points on five targets on Sunday. It was his lowest score in a game that wasn’t injury influenced since he was shut out in 2012 Week 11, though his fantasy owners recognized the challenging matchup, starting him in only 34.2 percent of ESPN leagues.
