Some questionable calls left the tackle with some questions of his own.
It was a triumphant day for the Los Angeles Chargers as they defeated the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday in their wild-card matchup by a score of 23-17. Philip Rivers was on it all game and at one point the Bolts led by 20 points. Despite the win, Chargers left tackle Russell Okung was upset after he was called for holding with just under two minutes left in the game, a call that could have cost the team the bout considering Los Angeles had just picked up a first down that would have ended the match.
"Roger Goodell doesn't want us to come home," Okung said according to ESPN. "That's all I can say."
In a game against the Ravens two weeks ago, Okung was called for a similar play that eventually led to a Ravens touchdown off of a fumble recovery.

Okung's comments suggest the NFL doesn't want the Chargers to host a playoff game this season. As of right now, they play at Dignity Healthy Sports Park which is a soccer stadium that only holds 27,000 fans. The team has had issues with attendance too considering there have been times where the majority of the crowd was from the opposing team, according to ESPN. The NFL has been criticized for this throughout the season.
The Chargers take on the Patriots next weekend in the divisional round.
