Shutdown Corner - NFL

No, he's not Tebowing and he isn't looking for his contact lens. San Diego Chargers kicker Nick Novak(notes) is doing exactly what you think he's doing under cover of Gatorade jug and towel on the team's sideline.

I guess when you've gotta go, you've gotta go, even if that's when your team is driving late in the fourth quarter for a potential game-winning field goal that you'll have to kick. Especially then.

Novak didn't get a chance to kick the field goal in regulation but had a shot to win the game in overtime. His 53-yard attempt was short and wide and the Chargers ended up losing a key division game to the Denver Broncos. The loss severely hurts San Diego's playoff chances and could signal the beginning of the end for coach Norv Turner. It's not all bad, though; if the Chargers had won, Nick and Norv ran the risk of getting a Gatorade shower.

Thanks, 30fps
