That time was Thursday night in Denver.
Brown had three catches on the day, each one more spectacular than the next. The best by far was his 32-yard sprawling dive in the second half that put the Bolts into Denver territory. On 3rd-and-9 at the San Diego 33-yard line less than three minutes into the third quarter, the Chargers knew they had to convert and get points to extend their lead. Rivers dropped back and threw a perfect pass up the left sideline. Brown went full extension to make an incredible catch to keep the drive alive.
“They were tight on man coverage, and we had a good play so it actually worked out perfect,” he said. “I came off the edge and got kind of a little pick by Keenan when he went around the corner. So I took off and I saw the ball in the air from there and tried to come down with the catch.”
Eventually, the team took a two touchdown lead after
“That catch he had on third and long on the bomb was a great catch,” said
So how satisfying was it for Brown to come up with the big plays when his team needed him the most?
“It feels good,” he said with his wide trademark smile. “I’m just trying to make plays and that’s the big thing. We have a lot of weapons on offense. We were able to click and everybody contributed. When everybody does there thing, tonight showed what we can do.”
