The Chargers didn't look impressive on Sunday.
Heading into the AFC divisional round matchup between the Los Angeles Chargers and the New England Patriots, many were taking the Chargers to defeat the almighty Patriots. After all, the Patriots have struggled at times this season, while the Chargers have been a force in the AFC. Despite all of that, the Patriots were dominant and won the game 41-28. The loss put an end to the Chargers season and now some players are commenting on the season.
One of those players is defensive end Melvin Ingram who has been one of the best defensive players on the Chargers this season. According to Eric Williams of ESPN, the player showed his frustration, saying: "We haven't accomplished s***. We didn't win the Super Bowl, we didn't accomplish nothing. We've got a long way to go. Offseason we got to work hard, OTAs camp and get back to it. We haven't accomplished nothing though."
The Chargers were one of the best teams in the AFC, but due to a strong AFC West, the team was relegated to a Wild-Card spot even though if they were in any other division, they would have gotten a bye. Ingram's comments show that it's Super Bowl or bust for many of these teams and that a second round exit simply isn't enough.
With the win, the Patriots will now play in the AFC Championship game against the Kansas City Chiefs.
