Rapid reaction: Bills 23, Chargers 14

Posted by ESPN.com's Bill Williamson

A long flight from Buffalo to London just became a long, miserable flight from Buffalo to London for the San Diego Chargers.

The Chargers just began a crucial, long road trip the worst way imaginable. They blew a chance to win in the fourth quarter in Buffalo. San Diego quarterback Philip Rivers made two critical mistakes late in the game to spoil San Diego's chances.

The Chargers are now 3-4 as they head to London to face New Orleans next week. This game is extra disappointing for San Diego because it again showed no consistency.

The Chargers have been inconsistent all season. They played their best overall game last week in a 30-10 win over New England. The thought was perhaps the Chargers were ready to take off.

However, once again, the team has sputtered and now San Diego is 3-4 as it heads to Europe.
