Chargers Vs. Chiefs Score Update: Curtis Brinkley Ties Game For Chargers

Consider this an introduction to Curtis Brinkley. The Chargers backup running back made three straight special plays to tie the Chiefs on Monday Night Football. Brinkley scored his first ever NFL touchdown one play after making his first ever NFL reception -- then caught a pass to score on the two-point conversion and tie the game 20-20.

In his second season out of Syracuse, Brinkley stepped in to spell Ryan Mathews, who is on the sideline with an injury, and helped the Chargers get into the end zone after settling for four straight field goals.

The touchdown was upheld after a review when it was ruled that Brinkley had crossed the goal line before losing the football. GIF below:


On the ensuing two-point conversion, another review was needed to make certain that Brinkley got into the end zone. Watch the play here: 


In all, two exciting moments for the Chargers running back in what has become a very exciting Monday Night Football game. Could this be the moment the game shifted for good in favor of San Diego?
