When the Dolphins got the ball on their own 25-yard line with nine seconds left in the second quarter, it looked like they were going to go into halftime tied with the Chargers with a score of 17-17.
Chargers cornerback J.C. Jackson had other ideas.
Head coach Mike McDaniel decided to be aggressive and it worked out as the Chargers cornerback committed a boneheaded pass interference by pushing receiver Erik Ezukanma way too early. This came after quarterback Tua Tagovailoa connected with receiver Jaylen Waddle for a 22-yard gain, with Waddle going out of bounds with two seconds on the clock.
The spot foul on the 23-yard line would be untimed and allow kicker Jason Sanders to connect on a 41-yard field goal to take the lead.
If the Chargers end up losing this game by three, you can point back to that huge play.
Jackson made up for his bonehead play by intercepting Tua in the end zone of the third quarter.
