Ending the ‘right way’

SAN DIEGO — “There’s nothing like winning in front of your home fans,” said Chargers head coach Mike McCoy following the 30-14 win over the Miami Dolphins at Qualcomm Stadium on Sunday.

The game, which was the final home game of the 2015-16 season, could have also been the final game the team ever plays in San Diego, as the NFL considers allowing the Chargers to move north to Los Angeles.

The Chargers season (4-10) has been a tough one.

“All I wanted to do was win this football game anyway we possibly could for the players, the coaches, the organizations, the fans — every Chargers supporter wherever you live — just to win. The year’s been what it’s been,” McCoy said.

Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers said after the game that it ended the right way. “If it is the end, it ended the right way.”
