The Chargers picked up an important win Sunday at SoFi Stadium, with quarterback Justin Herbert leading them to a 34-13 triumph over the Denver Broncos. The win puts the Chargers firmly in control of their playoff destiny — if they win next week against the Las Vegas Raiders, they clinch a postseason berth.
Veteran Los Angeles Times photographers Gina Ferazzi and Robert Gauthier captured many of the game’s biggest moments from their sideline vantage points Sunday. Here are some of their best photos of the game.
Gina Ferazzi grew up in the small New England town of Longmeadow, Mass. She has been a staff photographer with the Los Angeles Times since 1994. Her photos are a part of the staff Pulitzer Prizes for Breaking News in 2016 for the San Bernardino terrorist attack and for the wildfires in 2004. She’s an all-around photographer covering assignments from Winter Olympics, presidential campaigns to local and national news events. Her video documentaries include stories on black tar heroin, health clinics, women priests and Marine suicide. A two-sport scholarship athlete at the University of Maine, Orono, she still holds the record for five goals in one field hockey game.
Robert Gauthier has been with the Los Angeles Times since 1994. He was the photographer for a project detailing the failings of an L.A. public hospital that won the 2005 Pulitzer Prize for public service. Before The Times, Gauthier worked at the San Diego Union-Tribune, the Escondido Times-Advocate and the Bernardo News in San Diego County, his hometown.
