Davis, Chargers score victory over Buffalo
Glendale High graduate Michael Davis and the Los Angeles Chargers snapped a two-game losing streak Sunday with a lopsided victory against the visiting Buffalo Bills.
Davis, a rookie cornerback, registered three tackles and deflected one pass to help Los Angeles roll to a 54-24 win at StubHub Center in Carson. It was Davis’ first deflected pass on the season.
Davis, 22, has recorded 13 tackles in nine games.
The Chargers intercepted five passes thrown by Buffalo quarterback Nathan Peterman.
Los Angeles is 4-6 and will travel to play the Dallas Cowboys at 1:30 p.m. PDT Thursday.
Chiefs, Reid lose to Giants in overtime
The recent slide for the Kansas City Chiefs and coach Andy Reid, a former Glendale Community College player, continued Sunday.
The Chiefs lost in overtime to the New York Giants, 12-9, to suffer their fourth defeat in the last five games.
Kansas City is 6-4.
Alrick Rosas booted a 23-yard field foal in overtime to give the Giants the win, only their second in 10 games.
“It’s tough to win in the National Football League,” Reid told ESPN.com. “There is parity. It doesn’t matter if you are 1-8 or whatever it might be. There is opportunity. You have to bring you’re ‘A’ game every week and we have to get ourselves back to playing better. It’s my responsibility to do that.”
Kansas City will return to action Sunday with a home game against the Buffalo Bills.
Jackson, Browns fall again, remain winless
The woes of a trying season continued Sunday for the Cleveland Browns and coach Hue Jackson, a former Glendale Community College player.
The Browns, who were plagued by five turnovers, remained winless on the season with a 19-7 loss at home against the Jacksonville Jaguars.
With its 10th consecutive loss to start 2017, Cleveland dropped to 1-25 since the start of the 2016 season.
Jackson said his team has to be “almost perfect” to earn its first win of the season.
“That means no turnovers,” Jackson told ESPN.com. “Fundamentally, we have to do everything right to have a chance.”
Cleveland will host the Cincinnati Bengals on Sunday.
