He talked about putting on the hat after the team lost overtime to The Chargers.
“I apologize for not wearing the right hat,” Groden said. “Someone played a good trick with me.”
Invaders and Chargers grapple in overtime. Las Vegas had a long first run that ended with a field goal, then the team only needed a defensive pause to win the match.
Quarterback Chargers Justin Herbert He had other plans because he had a long pass to set up the game’s winning series. Herbert finally ran the ball to the finish zone for relegation and victory.
Groden said he was proud of the way his team played.
“I would say I am really proud of our team. We lost a lot of men tonight and lost a lot of men. [Marcus] Mariotta came along and did an amazing job. It is a pity that we couldn’t find a way to win that match in the end, it is on me. “
Mariotta replaced the start quarterback Derek CarrWho left the game with a thigh injury and did not return.
