The Jacksonville Jaguars defeated the Los Angeles Chargers 31-30 in their NFL Wild Card Round matchup last night.

In the process of doing so they also completed the third largest NFL playoff comeback of all time, after chasing down a 27-0 deficit.

Aside from the epic comeback, viewers were flabbergasted at the commentary during the closing stages of the game, which was bizarrely low-key and laid back for such an occasion.

NFL analyst Warren Sharp tweeted out, "never heard a more comatose call on a huge play, get these guys some coffee, this is just a completely LOUSY booth," while Barstool Sports founder Dave Portnoy called the commentators "morons."

"I think he was frustrated," Staley said of Chargers linebacker Joey Bosa, who gave away a crucial penalty for unsportsmanlike conduct.

"I think he felt like there were a bunch of things that kind of accumulated throughout the game and tried to talk through it with the officials. But we can't lose our composure like that.

"We need to make sure that we stay on the high side of things and we can't hurt the team that way.
