Colts at Chargers: What was that?

I’m not going to make it habit of writing about sports on this supposedly entertainment-oriented blog, but I just watched the Chargers eek out a two-point win over the Colts. Although I’m a Chargers fan, I’m flabbergasted how the San Diego team managed to prevail over Indianapolis.
After watching some of the game, I really think it wasn’t really the Chargers “winning” as it was the Colts “losing.”
The Chargers offense didn’t light up the board too much. The Chargers scored all their points in the first half and most of them came from special teams in the form of punt returns. The Chargers were there to be sure, taking advantage of some opportunities and putting up stops, but it seemed like the Colts were in the driver’s seat.
If Indianapolis was driving, they were lost for much of the first half. The Colts first-half performance wasn’t great — quarterback Payton Manning threw far too many interceptions. He ended up with six for the night.
However, Indy righted course and Manning and the rest of his dinged-up team went on to put up 21 unanswered points. They were a field goal from winning the game, but the kick went wide right.
It was the Colts kicker that missed. Although the Chargers got the ball back, they didn’t reach a first down to put the game away. They had to punt on fourth down and gave the Colts 26 seconds to try and score. The ball was in the Colts’ court before Manning threw his sixth interception as the horn sounded.
From what I saw, the door was wide open for the Colts to win. By the flukiest of flukes, the Chargers were declared the winner.
