If this was the Chargers' last NFL game in San Diego, it ended with a victory and a surreal postgame scene.
Not long after the Chargers beat the Miami Dolphins 30-14 on Sunday, Philip Rivers, Malcom Floyd, Eric Weddle and even coach Mike McCoy came back out to greet several thousand fans who don't want their team moving to Los Angeles.
Rivers worked his way around the stadium signing autographs. He took off his shoes, signed them and gave them away.
Rivers even signed two signs critical of team Chairman Dean Spanos, reading: "Spanos loves money and I love San Diego" and "Don't be the Grinch who stole the Bolts from San Diego."
"It was a special day, if it is the last one," said Rivers, in his 12th season as Chargers quarterback. "I told the guys before the game, they've been playing football in this town before any of us were born, and there's people who're going to be at that game today that were coming to games before we were born. But we get to close it out, if it is the end. Hopefully the fans that have seen it over the years and the players that played in there can be proud today that we at least ended it the right way."
Spanos, who has been pushing since February to be positioned to beat St. Louis Rams owner Stan Kroenke to Los Angeles, refused comment as he left the locker room with his two sons, who now run the team.
• BLOOPER-REEL MATERIAL: Matt Cassel started his seventh game as Cowboys quarterback Saturday night, but he played only four series before he was pulled for Kellen Moore. On his second series, Cassel was trying to throw the ball away and instead threw it right to Jets All-Pro cornerback Darrelle Revis. There was no Dallas receiver in the area, so Cassel was called for intentional grounding on an interception. "That's a play we'll be watching for years and years," Cassel said, "teaching quarterbacks of what not to do."
