Despite trailing by 14 points in Thursday’s game against the Kansas City Chiefs, a Philip Rivers inspired Los Angeles Chargers initiated a late comeback to win the game 29-28.

The Chiefs were leading 28-14 with eight minutes left into the game and it looked it was going to be another comfortable win for the division leaders. But in the eight minutes, the Chargers not only erased the 14-point deficit but they stole a win in the last four seconds.

With the win, the Chargers came level with the Chiefs at 11 wins and three losses and also clinched a playoff spot. Quarterback Justin Jackson made a touchdown with two minutes left to give his teams hopes of snatching a win.

After the touchdown, the Chargers didn’t waste any more time. They quickly snatched the ball from Patrick Mahomes and completed another touchdown through Mike Williams to bring the deficit to one at 28-27. Rivers, who had earlier on made a mistake that cost them points, made the last two-point conversion to lead the Chargers to their 11th win this season.

With equal points this season, the Chargers have a chance to clinch the AFC West Title should the Chiefs mess one more time.
