The Los Angeles Chargers head to NY next week to square off against the Giants, another struggling team. The Chargers (0-3) have a rookie, kicker, too, Younghoe Koo, but he's off to a rough start. However, they would be more respectable if they demonstrate that they are deserving by dominating the AFC West and legitimately earning a spot in the playoffs. However, what the photo shows is nothing new since the start of the season.
Despite losing eight straight games and being plagued by turnovers, the Chargers are not to be overlooked. Basically, they'll be Screech. As the Eagles came out of the tunnel before the game, they were met widely by cheers, with Philadelphia transplants from across Los Angeles coming out to see their team. All three are crucial towards the success of the Eagles secondary.
Some fans believe the season is already over after last week's loss to the Kansas City Chiefs.
Los Angeles Chargers quaterback Philip Rivers kneeling at StubHub Center on September 24. He's thrown 295 touchdown passes and 150 interceptions since 2007. Whoever is in there on the back end for the Iggles will have to make a play.
Tim Jernigan seemed to step up in Cox's absence, pressuring Rivers and helping shut down the run, as did Beau Allen, who notched his first solo sack in 52 National Football League games. Wentz could use improved protection from his offensive line as he has been sacked 11 times and Chargers' sack master Melvin Ingram (5.5 sacks) is salivating about opportunities to pad that total.More news: 'What we've seen tonight was not Bayern Munich' - Rummenigge
The Chargers are struggling to gain popularity after moving from San Diego to Los Angeles. However, with both the Cowboys and Redskins late in the year as well, it seems inevitable that this team will be one of the worst in the NFL. The Eagles' most productive weapon in the passing game, though, is tight end Zach Ertz. Second year quarterback Carson Wentz didn't light up the stat sheet, but he was efficient, completing 21 of 31 passes for 176 yards and a touchdown and spreading the ball around to six different receivers. Philly's defense will have a unique test of their own to pass against the Chargers. The only team allowing more rushing yards per game than the Bolts? The Eagles won that one 13-7.
D-line doing fine: Despite playing without two-time Pro Bowl defensive tackle Fletcher Cox, the Eagles' front four has played well. Sproles is done for the season and Cox has been ruled out for this week with a calf strain. The veteran running back and punt returner began his career with the Chargers, so he would have been facing a handful of former teammates this weekend. Gordon was a big part of the offense last week before he left the game with a bruised knee on Sunday.
This Sunday was a great example of how unfriendly home field can be to the Chargers. Meanwhile, the Eagles have a future Hall of Famer in ... hang on I'm looking up his name ... K Jake Elliott's 61-yard field goal was the third-longest game-winner in National Football League history.
Can the Chargers pull out a close win?
