The NFL moves fast. Hold on tight. 

Cincinnati wide receiver Ja’Marr Chase was on the way to a near-certain touchdown, a score that would have narrowed the Chargers’ lead and helped Chase shore up his Offensive Rookie of the Year credentials. Except, well … whoops:

Los Angeles’ Michael Davis was right there and ready for the early Christmas gift, and just like that, another promising Cincinnati drive vaporized. A different angle shows the cringeworthy bobble:

Coming into the game, Chase had 906 yards and eight touchdowns on 50 receptions. He’s already developed into one of the league’s top receivers. But this is a target he’ll leave off his personal 2021 highlight reel. 

Like Chase, Cincinnati struggled early, giving up a fumble and this interception on the first two drives. Los Angeles turned this INT into a touchdown to go up 16-0, and held all the mojo early against the Bengals. 

This was an interception. (CBS)This was an interception. (CBS)
