The Chargers lost despite leading for most of the game, but coach Brandon Staley said he was proud of how his team played in those first four minutes.

“I thought we played hard,” Staley said. “We didn’t come here to get a pat on the back for playing hard. That’s not what this team is about. We came here to win tonight. … Now, we didn’t win. But the effort and the physicality — the toughness of our team — that was good enough.”

I’m excited to see our team come out and play. I thought that we had a good first half, and I think that’s because we didn’t back down. I think the other team was a little intimidated by us in the second half, but we didn’t let that happen. We kept going right at them and made them feel uncomfortable. Our team is really determined to win this game, so I’m glad they came out like they did today.

The Chargers had a great first half, but they couldn’t keep their momentum going. They scored 16 points in the first half, but only ran 19 plays for 52 yards and three first downs over the final two quarters.

The Chargers’ defense was too much for the Vikings to handle in a 20-12 win.

Quarterback Justin Herbert was seven for 14 for 35 yards with one interception after halftime. The Chargers’ final first down came in the last two minutes of the third quarter on a Herbert sneak.

“That’s a good defense,” Staley said. “We just couldn’t get anything going in the run game. In the passing game, it was tight. The rush was coming. There wasn’t a lot of air in the second and third level to take advantage of.”

The Chargers began Sunday without their top two wide receivers — Keenan Allen (hamstring) and Mike Williams (ankle) both injured. Right tackle Trey Pipkins III was questionable for the game because of a knee sprain and was unable to play on Sunday due to his injury.”

The Chargers had to come back from a deficit in order to beat the 49ers.vs on Sunday. That’s because they were without starting tight end Gerald Everett, who got injured against New England. Still, they hung tough to open their six-point halftime edge.

And then, in the second half, San Francisco quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo was sacked and fumbled by Chargers linebacker Melvin Ingram for a safety.

Still, the Chargers could not convert on third down and went three-and-out on their final 10 possessions. They only scored three points in those 10 possessions.

They also lost starting quarterback Philip Rivers due to an injury. He had been sacked by 49ers defensive lineman Solomon Thomas and left the game with an injury on his throwing shoulder.

Despite these setbacks, backup quarterback Josh Rosen found wide receiver Mike Williams for a touchdown pass in the fourth quarter. They also had a field goal attempt blocked by 49ers.vs cornerback Richard Sherman that went over his head but fell out at the two-yard line.
