Los Angeles Chargers head coach Anthony Lynn said he expects to be in charge on Monday, despite his team’s record-setting humiliation at the hands of the New England Patriots.
The Chargers were embarrassed on Sunday after suffering a 45-0 blow-out defeat at home to the Patriots in Inglewood, California.
Los Angeles were condemned to their worst loss in franchise history, eclipsing a 49-6 demolition against Kansas City in 1964.
The Chargers (3-9) – boasting exciting quarterback prospect Justin Herbert – have lost back-to-back games and five of their past six amid mounting pressure on Lynn.

“Let me just start out by saying, that was one of the worst football games I’ve ever been a part of, in my 30 years in the National Football League as a player and a coach,” Lynn said during his post-match news conference.
“I will personally make sure that will never happen again. Because that was unacceptable and embarrassing.”
Asked if he expected to be coaching the Chargers heading into Week 14, Lynn replied: “Yeah, I expect to be the coach of this team tomorrow.”
“That’s out of my control, my job status. But I talk to [owner] Dean [Spanos] all the time,” Lynn added. “It’s my job to get this team back on track and if I’m here I will.”
