The Los Angeles Chargers (0-3) are still looking for their first victory of 2017 as they host the Philadelphia Eagles (2-1) this Sunday as small home favorites. Ingram had three sacks last week in a 24-10 loss to the Chiefs.
As prolific as Philip Rivers was in the Chargers' first two losses of the season, Anthony Lynn waited just a little too long to let one of the best quarterbacks in the game pull his ass out of the fire last week.
"It was a quiet ride home Sunday, at least for the first 30 minutes", Rivers said. Though they rank next to last in run defense, the numbers are skewed by late plays, including Kareem Hunt's 69-yard run last week capping the Chiefs 24-10 win over the Chargers.
This year, you won't be seeing quite as much pink on the field, but we're still going to begin finding out which teams are for real, and which ones are going to fade into the background as the season rolls on. Somehow though, every Philip Rivers game feels like it has him with the ball needing to go the length of the field in order to win.
"Their two edge pass rushers as a duo may be as good as we face all year", offensive coordinator Frank Reich said.
The Eagles are more comparable to the Broncos, and they are beatable.
Chargers' run game. vs. Eagles' run defense The Chargers' rushing attack stinks so far. "We do get emails, phone calls and tweets from viewers saying that they change the channel as soon as we mention the Chargers", said Roth. Both the Chargers and Rams are new to the city, and both teams have not done a great job of getting butts into seats to watch their games. That was a very hard game to play the way we were doing it, because we were trying to limit their ability to make big plays.
"I will say that I think the odds of that happening are extremely slim". These two teams will meet up on Sunday, and the Chargers are hoping to grab their first win of the season. Three turnovers and failing to stop the Chiefs' ground game were the biggest reasons for their latest failure.
The Chargers will celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month during the game. Just like that, if the team loses in NY, the Chargers could be 0-8.
The Chargers offense has not scored more than 21 points in a game this season.
Stop me if you've read this but the Chargers aren't your average 0-and-whatever team.
The kick sent the Eagles into a three-way tie for first place in the division and the Giants reeling with an 0-3 start. Wendell Smallwood chipped in 71 yards on 12 carries and he'll be asked to do more with Darren Sproles done for the year.
While the thought of bringing the Chargers back to San Diego without Dean Spanos is a happy one, it is also highly unlikely.
