The Los Angeles Chargers are just playing for pride at this point after being eliminated from the postseason.

Sunday's performance against the Minnesota Vikings was an embarrassment, as the Chargers turned the ball over seven times and got shellacked by a final score of 39-10. Luckily, there weren't too many actual Chargers fans in the stands to be upset about the result.

After the game, head coach Anthony Lynn couldn't hold back his true feelings about how his team did.

Lynn has always been honest and this response was no different. He knows his team has to play near-perfect football to win and it has to be frustrating watching the offense just give the ball away.

Philip Rivers threw three interceptions and lost a fumble on the day, while Melvin Gordon topped him with two fumbles and Hunter Henry added a fourth.

The Vikings didn't even play that well on offense. The NFC North side just didn't turn the ball over seven times. At that point, it's a surprise the Chargers defense didn't simply wave the white flag and head into the locker room.

There is no home-field advantage for the Chargers, and the team has looked uninspired of late. Lynn's comments could light a fire under the squad, though at 5-9 perhaps tanking would be the wiser option.
