Philip Rivers said the unsportsmanlike conduct penalty he got in the fourth quarter was maybe the worst call he's had against him in his NFL career. Rivers had completed a 43-yard pass to Travis Benjamin, and turned back to say something to Indianapolis Colts defensive tackle David Parry when he was flagged on the play. The Chargers settled for a Josh Lambo 27-yard field goal. "I never got one really for doing nothing, and maybe the cleanest thing said on that field today," Rivers said. Rivers said his gesture was a little arrogant but really nothing, and hoped that the person he was talking to in Parry would vouch for him. "We were friendly all day," River said. "He had one earlier where I had to throw the ball away, and he said something to me like, ‘They're gloved up out there,' and we kind of laughed. It was nothing. "And I hit that one, and he made some comment to the effect of ‘He didn't catch that.' And my exact words were ‘That was a dime, c'mon.' That was it. That was exactly it, nothing else. So from 30 yards away I get a penalty, when he should have been spotting the ball."

Hilton spins and jukes for go-ahead touchdown (0:25)

Colts WR T.Y. Hilton goes 63-yards on a "follow" concept. The Colts ran an underneath crosser that is paired with Hilton the angle route. That gave Hilton a one-on-one matchup vs. a defender playing with outside leverage. A quick cut inside and then the speed to win in the open field. Colts take a 26-22 lead over the Chargers with under two minutes to go.

Efficient through the first two games, the Chargers struggled to move the football against the Indianapolis Colts. Specifically, Melvin Gordon was held to just 13 yards on seven carries. The Chargers finished with 113 total yards but went into halftime tied at 13-all after a Jatavis Brown strip sack of Andrew Luck was returned 61 yards for a score by DL Caraun Reid.
