This is a great time of year to be thankful for what we have Philip Rivers Color Rush Jersey , where we have been, and what the future holds. Although the Chargers have lost their way a bit in recent years, the month of December still holds such incredible promise! This advent calendar is an attempt to hearken back to these days of December joy. Each day will bring a new advent from the Bolts’ history that makes it wonderful to be a Chargers fan.Dec. 04: The Last Successful Free Kick in the NFLDon’t worry if you’ve never heard of or seen a free kick in the NFL before. They’re about as rare as the national media remembering that the Chargers moved to Los Angeles two years ago and no longer play in San Diego. Low and behold though, our story will come to an end in the Bay area. For those of you who don’t know what a free kick is when after a fair catch, an NFL team has the right to take a free kick from the line of scrimmage on the next play. If the kick goes through the uprights, the kicking team scores 3 points. Slow down though, it’s not as easy as it seems. Granted, kicking a 95 yard field goal is nearly impossible, the rules for making a free kick after a poor punt could come with a cost. Here are the rules.There is no snap.The defense must stand at least 10 yards from the line of scrimmage until the ball is kicked.The kicking team may not use a tee. The ball must be placed or drop-kicked.Even if time expired on the preceding play, the fair-catching team may still attempt the kick.Now, this would seem like it’s easier in College Football mainly due to poor execution from a young player. Not really. In fact, since 1949, the NCAA tried to eliminate all fair catches. That wasn’t going to last due to player’s safety. Following the 1950 season, college football restored the fair catch Melvin Gordon Color Rush Jersey , but explicitly removed the fair catch kick rule. Basically, it you want to see this done, go to your local high school and pray for a miracle or hope a NFL team tries to bring it back. Since 1925, the free kick has been implemented into the league for players to try. The big kicker however is how limited it truly is. In nearly 85 years of the professional sport’s existence, the free kick has only been attempted 26 times during the regular season. 28 if you included playoffs but knowing the Chargers, not so much. But never fear Chargers fans, the kick has not been successfully preformed since 1976. The culprit? You guessed it, the San Diego Chargers. Lining up for a 45-yard field goal, Chargers kicker Ray Wersching would nail the kick and head into the locker room for halftime. This would put the Chargers up 27-10 and eventually seal the the win. In the history of free kicks, the kick has only gone through the uprights five times. The Chargers are the final team to do so. So while spirits are high heading into a 9-3 record for the month of December, some Charger fans like to think the world is over since their team isn’t the best in the league. While that’s true, the other Los Angeles team is, the Chargers are in the record books for something Greg Zuerlein will probably never have a chance to try. In the end, the Chargers still are making history. PITTSBURGH (AP) — The Pittsburgh Steelers let another one slip away.For the second straight week Austin Ekeler Color Rush Jersey , the Steelers held a second-half lead and lost. This time, Pittsburgh blew its biggest lead ever at home, as Michael Badgley kicked a 29-yard field goal on the final play, lifting the Los Angeles Chargers to a 33-30 victory over the Steelers on Sunday night.“It’s not how you start, it’s how you finish, and they finished the game,” Steelers defensive tackle Cameron Heyward said.The Steelers (7-4-1) were on a six-game winning streak before losing last week at Denver and again on Sunday. It’s their first two-game losing streak of the season.The Steelers, who held a 23-7 lead to start the second half, blew a 16-point lead at home for the first time in franchise history. The Steelers were previously 174-0-1 all-time when ahead by 16 points at home. It was the first time the Steelers blew a 16-point lead overall since Nov. 8, 1981, against Seattle.“The game was 23-7 and as a defense, we can’t surrender points,” Heyward said. “We just gotta play better. I don’t care who it is, it’s unacceptable.”Ben Roethlisberger threw for 281 yards and two scores for the Steelers Joey Bosa Color Rush Jersey , who are clinging to the AFC North lead over surging Baltimore. Antonio Brown caught 10 passes for a season-high 154 yards and a touchdown. James Conner added 60 yards rushing and two touchdowns before leaving in the fourth quarter with a lower leg contusion.“It’s a bad loss,” Roethlisberger said. “You just can’t play bad football against a good football team.”Things looked good in the first half when Pittsburgh scored on four of six possessions. Conner scored on a pair of 1-yard runs, giving the Steelers an early 13-0 lead following a missed extra point. The Steelers, who won four of the previous five meetings against Los Angeles, continued to surge, and pushed the lead to 16-6.Pittsburgh, which came into the game 18-3 in December since 2013 – the best mark in the NFL over that span – seemed poised for another masterful December performance with an end-of-half score, nearly driving the length of the field in just 1:18. Roethlisberger capped the six-play, 91-yard series by threading a 28-yard touchdown pass between three defenders to Brown for the score.But, Philip Rivers and Los Angeles recovered in the second half.Rivers completed 26 of 36 passes for 299 yards and two touchdowns. Keenan Allen caught 14 passes for 148 yards and a score, while Justin Jackson ran for 63 yards and a touchdown in place of injured starter Melvin Gordon. Pittsburgh limited Los Angeles to just two yards rushing in the first half, tying the third-fewest allowed by the Steelers since Heinz Field opened in 2001.“We just didn’t tackle better in the second half,” Heyward said. “We didn’t stop the run as much. We have to be better as a defense.”Los Angeles opened the second half with 23 unanswered points, turning a 23-7 halftime deficit into a 30-23 lead.Allen caught a 10-yard touchdown pass from Rivers late in the third quarter on a play in which Pittsburgh defensive backs Sean Davis and Joe Haden collided going for the ball Forrest Lamp Color Rush Jersey , which popped up in the air and landed squarely in Allen’s hands.Desmond King added a 73-yard punt return, and Allen pulled in the 2-point conversion to tie the game at 23. Jackson’s 18-yard burst up the middle gave the Chargers a 30-23 lead.Rookie Jaylen Samuels replaced Conner and caught a 10-yard touchdown pass for Pittsburgh with 4:10 to play to tie the game at 30. That left Rivers ample time to one-up Roethlisberger, a fellow member of the vaunted 2004 draft class that includes New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning.Rivers calmly led the Chargers 64 yards in 11 plays, including a 12-yard pass to Allen on third-and-4 at the Pittsburgh 34 that pushed Los Angeles close enough to bring on Badgley for the win.Badgley initially missed a 39-yard kick, but Pittsburgh was called for offsides.“It looked like all of us jumped off at the same time,” Haden said. “Sometimes when you get a good jump, it looks like you jumped offsides. I would have to look at it again, but I didn’t feel like we were offsides.”Badgley’s ensuing 34-yard attempt was blocked, but the Steelers were flagged again for jumping across the line of scrimmage before the snap. Badgley drilled his third attempt at the game-winner, as the Chargers completed the biggest opposing comeback in Heinz Field history with just their fourth win in Pittsburgh in 19 tries.“You can’t say anything about our offense, our offense put up 30 points,” Heyward said. “We didn’t get the job done as a defense.”
