COSTA MESA, Calif. (AP) — Kicker Michael Badgley is questionable for the Los Angeles Chargers' opener against Indianapolis after suffering a groin injury during Friday's practice.
BALTIMORE (AP) — The Los Angeles Chargers kept Lamar Jackson grounded, and by the time the rookie got the passing game going it was too late for the Baltimore Ravens.
Michael Badgley kicked five field goals, and Los Angeles harassed and hounded Jackson during a 23-17 victory Sunday in the opening round of the NFL playoffs.
CARSON, Calif. (AP) — The Los Angeles Chargers had every reason to be susceptible to a trap game against Cincinnati.
The Chargers were coming off an emotional, come-from-behind victory against Pittsburgh last Sunday and a key AFC West showdown at Kansas City was fast approaching.
Sunday's 26-21 victory over the Bengals was not one of Los Angeles' best-played games of the season, but it does improve the record to 10-3 going into Thursday night's game against the 11-2 Chiefs for the division lead.
PITTSBURGH (AP) — Philip Rivers watched Ben Roethlisberger do what the Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback so often does — lead a game-tying drive late in the fourth quarter — and decided it was time for the Los Angeles Chargers to do something they so rarely do: win a big one on the road against a team with Super Bowl aspirations of its own.
So the longtime Los Angeles quarterback gathered his teammates around him and delivered a very blunt message.
PITTSBURGH (AP) — The Pittsburgh Steelers let another one slip away.
For the second straight week, 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.
COSTA MESA, Calif. (AP) — The Los Angeles Chargers have released kicker Caleb Sturgis and promoted Michael Badgley from the practice squad.
Sturgis' release Monday came after he missed two extra points and a field goal in Sunday's 25-17 win over Seattle. The six-year veteran is the first kicker since the Raiders' Jim Breech in 1979 to miss a PAT and field goal in three straight games.
COSTA MESA, Calif. (AP) — The Los Angeles Chargers signed linebacker Hayes Pullard on Tuesday and waived kicker Michael Badgley.
Pullard, who is in his fourth season, was with the team during the preseason before being released. He played in 13 games and made 10 starts for the Chargers last season, with 47 tackles and an interception.
MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. (AP) — Darrell Langham was going down, and so was No. 11 Miami.
Until they weren't.
A Miami Miracle happened again - and the Hurricanes are still perfect this season. Langham's 28-yard catch on a tipped ball that just happened to fall into his arms as he fell down on a fourth-or-else play helped set up Michael Badgley's 24-yard field goal with 4 seconds left, and Miami somehow beat Georgia Tech 25-24 on Saturday.
