Antonio Gates of the Los Angeles Chargers made history in Week 2.

It’s been two weeks without a win for the Chargers this season, but that doesn’t mean there hasn’t been small moments of victory in-between. For tight end Antonio Gates, Week 2 was more about him making history than them not getting the win.

It was a tight game, and you have to give the Miami Dolphins credit for coming out with the win. However, the only reason that LA didn’t win was because of a missed kick — the same sad result of Monday night in Denver.

Gates got the touchdown to put the Chargers up a score, but it wouldn’t be enough in the end. Moving forward, Gates will obviously continue to have a big impact on the field for the latest team to come to Los Angeles.

Looking at the big picture, this milestone will be something the team shouldn’t have a problem appreciating. But that being said, they can’t allow that to distract them from actually emerging victorious by the time Week 3 rolls around.

Miami shouldn’t have been as much of a problem for the Chargers as they were, but there’s nothing that LA can do to change that now. And so far, losing might not even be the biggest problem for the rest of the season and their tenure in the city of angels.

Attendance has also factored into the wow factor of having two teams in Los Angeles, but for the opposite reasons you’d expect. Not for excitement or competition, but rather for the fact that neither team can fill up their respective home stadiums.

Next up on the schedule for the Chargers is a home date with the 2-0 Kansas City Chiefs. Alex Smith and company will look to make LA lose their second consecutive home game and third overall in a clash between division rivals.

Nonetheless, there’s nothing anyone can say about Antonio Gates now.
