Redskins blew a 10-point lead in the fourth quarter but they came back to beat the Chargers in overtime 30-24. After a late Chargers field goal tied the game at 24, the Redskins took the overtime kickoff and drove 79 yards for to a four-yard Darrel Young touchdown run, his third of the game. The Redskins tried to put together a game-clinching drive starting with about four minutes left but they could muster only one first down and they had to punt back to the Chargers. Philip Rivers shook off one of his worst games of the year and led the Chargers down to the tying field goal. The Redskins had to survive a Danny Woodhead run that was called a touchdown on the field but the call was reversed after a replay review. The ball was at the one yard line but after a run for no gain and two Rivers incompletions, Nick Novak booted the game-typing field goal with three seconds left. The Redskins took the lead early in the fourth quarter on a one-yard touchdown blast by Darrel Young. That capped an 11-play, 74-yard drive. They then got a little bit of breathing room on Kai Forbath’s 47-yard field goal with 7:06 left to play. The Chargers responded with a 77-yard touchdown drive to pull within three with 4:16 left to go. After struggling in Denver last week, Robert Griffin III was more on target today, completing 23 of 32 passes for 291 yards. He also ran five times for 18 yards. Alfred Morris had his best game of the season as he picked up 121 yards on 23 carries. He had not been over 20 carries or 100 yards all year.
