But they loved the call.The decision by Titans coach Mike Vrabel to go for a go-ahead 2-point conversion against the Los Angeles Chargers on Sunday doomed Tennessee (3-4) to a third straight loss when Marcus Mariota\'s pass to Taywan Taylor was tipped by safety Adrian Phillips in the end zone.With the score 20-19 after Mariota threw a touchdown pass to Luke Stocker on fourth down with 31 seconds left Youth Tyrell Williams Jersey , Vrabel had the option of playing it safe and heading for overtime by kicking an extra point. But there was no doubt in his players\' minds that he was right to go for the win.\"I love the call, everyone in this locker room loved the call,\" wide receiver Tajae Sharpe said. \"We wanted to be aggressive no matter what, and that\'s what we did. Unfortunately it just didn\'t go our way.\"Vrabel\'s decision is likely to be second-guessed outside the Titans\' locker room, though, especially after the element of surprise disappeared when Tennessee\'s first attempt at the 2-point conversion was negated by a defensive holding penalty.The momentum was also in the Titans\' favor as they had rallied from an 11-point deficit in the second half and had largely managed to control the Chargers\' high-powered offense aside from two long touchdown passes by Philip Rivers.Vrabel said playing with a banged-up offensive line after right guard Josh Kline limped off during the final drive was \"a consideration\" when making the call. Although he also said he had already made the decision before Kline\'s injury.\"When that drive started I thought in my mind that if we scored, when we scored, and it was less than 40 seconds we were going to go for 2 and win the game,\" Vrabel said.\"If it was a minute and 30 (seconds), we kick the extra point and we go and play defense. ... I got a lot of faith in my players converting third downs and converting those situations. Marcus was doing everything we needed to do to keep the plans alive. So I\'m not going to second-guess the call. It just didn\'t work out.\"Mariota finished with 237 yards passing and one touchdown, but also regretted an interception thrown from the Chargers 10-yard line on a play that began with 39 seconds left in the first half. A touchdown would have put Tennesee ahead 13-10 at halftime, but they instead found themselves trailing 17-6 after Rivers hit Mike Williams on a 55-yard touchdown pass on the opening drive of the second half.Rivers also threw a 75-yard score to Tyrell Williams on the Chargers\' first play from scrimmage as Los Angeles came up with the big plays that eluded Tennesee.Like Sharpe, though, Mariota defended Vrabel\'s decision to go for 2.\"I love that he has confidence in us to go make that. We just didn\'t execute,\" Mariota said. \"I should\'ve done a better job maybe extending the play Womens Austin Ekeler Jersey , knowing it was the last play. There\'s definitely more I wish I could\'ve done. But that being said, they did a good job of covering it.\" An 0-4 start put the Los Angeles Chargers in a hole too deep to escape last season.Coach Anthony Lynn wants his new team to spend September building instead of digging.The first few weeks of this season are particularly important to Lynn and the Chargers, a popular pick to win the AFC West and to earn their franchise\'s second postseason appearance since 2009.The Bolts went 9-3 after their dismal start to their relocation season, but it wasn\'t enough to make the playoffs. Lynn seems confident his veteran players learned the importance of early season urgency from last year\'s setbacks.\"We\'ll see how we start, but hopefully we start faster than we did last year,\" Lynn said Monday after the Chargers began preparations for Sunday\'s home opener against Kansas City.The Chargers weren\'t exactly terrible to begin last season: Three of those four losses were by seven total points, and the Chargers were undone twice by missed field goals in the final seconds. But they didn\'t match the level of play they hit frequently later in the year , when the NFL\'s top passing offense and an aggressive defense combined to turn the Bolts into one of the NFL\'s best teams.\"You can\'t take wins and losses from last season,\" Lynn said. \"I wish you could, but you can\'t. But you can certainly bring the culture over, and I like the attitude of the players.\"The Chargers also feel they\'ve got a reliable kicker after last season\'s missteps. The team that cycled through four kickers last season is going with Caleb Sturgis, who was the champion Philadelphia Eagles\' kicker at the start of last season before getting hurt and missing the bulk of the year.The Chargers also appear to be getting healthy after several regulars were slowed by injuries during the preseason.Defensive end Joey Bosa, receiver Tyrell Williams, rookie defensive tackle Justin Jones and cornerbacks Casey Hayward and Trevor Williams all participated in the Bolts\' first practice of the week Monday. Bosa and Hayward, two of their most important defensive players Youth Brandon Mebane Jersey , are expected to be ready to play Sunday.\"My only concern is a boxer needs so many sparring rounds before you go fight, and these guys have been out,\" Lynn said. \"So getting them caught up and back in the fold is my only concern.\"Tight end Antonio Gates was in the locker room after signing a one-year deal to return for his 16th season with the Chargers, but he won\'t return to practice until Wednesday. Lynn is waiting to evaluate the 38-year-old star\'s readiness before he determines Gates\' role this weekend.\"I just want to see his conditioning,\" Lynn said. \"I don\'t want to put him in a position where he goes out there and hurts himself, and that sets us back four or five weeks. I just don\'t see us doing that. But Antonio, he\'s a pro. He\'ll let me know how he feels at the end of the week and about how his pitch count can be, and we\'ll talk about it.\"Kansas City will be a particular challenge right away for the Chargers, who were beaten soundly twice by the AFC West champions last year. Kansas City essentially sewed up the division with a 30-13 home victory over Los Angeles on Dec. 16 — the Chargers\' only loss in seven games to close the season.Nearly every playmaker from last season\'s team is back, and they all remember how it felt to be playing catch-up all season long.\"We definitely want to get it going from the start this year, and not wait to get to where we need to go,\" running back Melvin Gordon said recently. \"We\'ve got to be ready.\" Custom Tennessee Titans Jerseys
