It’s been an up-and-down season for the Chargers’ special teams unit. They’ve had issues with fumbled snaps, missed kicks and other gaffes. Kicker Josh Lambo had his struggles early, but rebounded with back-to-back four-for-four performances during mid-October. He’s been mediocre since, as he’s made four of his last six field goals, but only 11 of 13 extra points. His...
