Running back Danny Woodhead had a touchdown taken away via replay review in the Chargers’ loss to the Washington Redskins last week. A touchdown that would have given the Chargers the lead with less than 30 seconds left in the game. Instead the Chargers settled for a field goal after failing to punch it in for the one yard line.
According to Michael Gehlken of the U-T San Diego, Woodhead is convinced that he did score on that play.
Woodhead declined this week to address what sources say the running back considers fact behind closed doors, and that is the football brushed against the pylon when diving for a touchdown in the final minute of the fourth quarter. He felt it. None of the available camera angles showed so, and the score, on which he busted his nose, was overturned upon review.
Woodhead echoes what the whole team said. They need to get ready for the Denver Broncos. The Broncos currently hold one of the two wildcard spots the Chargers are hoping to get. If the Chargers are to realize that hope, it needs to start with a win against their AFC West rival.
