Chargers hit steel curtain on Monday

The Chargers hit a steel curtain in their 24-20 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers on Monday Night football at Qualcomm Stadium. On Tuesday, head coach Mike McCoy described the game as a “60-minute heavyweight fight.”

But in the end, McCoy said the team made too many mistakes to beat a team like the Steelers. “We’ve just got to do a better job for 60 minutes, every guy, every coach doing their jobs better,” he said. The Chargers will head to Wisconsin to take on the Green Bay Packers Sunday.
