San Diego Chargers and Marines Square Off in 'Call of Duty'

Posted: Updated:

The San Diego Chargers invited a group of marines to Chargers Park for some fun and games...literally!

The Chargers and the marines engaged in warfare in the video game "Call of Duty", and it's not a surprise that the Marines were much better at the strategic warfare Game. "The way they group and how they form things is already on point," said Chargers receiver Travis Benjamin. "Just playing as a group and everybody playing as one, and our last match we won, so it felt kind of good."

The Chargers even had rookie defensive end Joey Bosa play two Marines in the game while Skyping with them in Kuwait. "Yeah it was awesome.  I was getting my butt kicked a little bit so not too much fun," said Bosa.

The group of Marines are part of the game day military flyover, but that's not why they were selected. These Marines will be deployed overseas in the Philippines, Thailand and South Korea. " I never thought I would see this (Chargers Park), said Cpl. Coreno Blanchard. "It's actually cool to come here and see the facility."

The Chargers and the military have been working together many times over the years, including a walk through on the deck of the USS Reagan, training camp practice at MCAS Miramar and Camp Pendleton, and their "Thank the Troops" during game day.
