Video: Chargers Twitter Account Trolls Chiefs after Famous Comeback

The Los Angeles Chargers mounted a memorable comeback to beat the Chiefs in Kansas City on Thursday night and their Twitter account seized the opportunity to have some fun at the expense of their divisional rivals.

Trailing by 14 points against the AFC West champions at Arrowhead, the Chargers scored 15 unanswered points, which included a two-point conversion, to win the game 29-28.

Down by seven points with three minutes left, the Chargers marched down 60 yards on an eight-play drive to come within a point of the Chiefs with just eight seconds left in the game. While most coaches would have settled for an extra point to tie the game, Anthony Lynn rolled the dice and he was rewarded when Mike Williams caught the two-point conversion.

The win snapped the Chargers' nine-game losing streak against the Chiefs, a statistical nugget that was wheeled out with impeccable regularity in the lead up to Thursday night.

Following the game, the Chargers' official Twitter account decided to put together a little video package to get one over the critics and rub the Chiefs' noses in the dirt a bit.

The 30-second clip immediately went viral and had received almost 13,000 retweets and 32,000 likes at the time of writing.

Courtesy of their remarkable comeback, the Chargers improved to 11-3, clinching a trip to the playoffs for the first time since 2013, and are now tied with the Chiefs for the best record in the AFC.

While Los Angeles has given itself a chance to secure the top seed in the conference, it would need the Chiefs to lose another game as Kansas City currently holds the tiebreaker.

However, the fact the Chargers have a chance to finish top of the AFC is remarkable, given they were four minutes away from slipping to 10-4.

Instead they fought back from a 14-point deficit on the road in the fourth quarter for the second time this season, having produced a similar feat in Week 13 against the Steelers in Pittsburgh.

The rest of the NFL, meanwhile, is 3-78 in the same scenario.

To put the Chargers comeback into context, since the turn of the millennium, teams trailing by 14 points with five minutes remaining in the game have won 12 games out of a possible 2,059.

The Chargers host the Baltimore Ravens on Saturday before traveling to Denver to face the Broncos on December 30 in their last regular season game.

Meanwhile, the Chiefs' two remaining games of the regular season are a trip to Seattle on Monday night and a home game against the Raiders in Week 17.
