Chargers Prepare to Face Eagles

Chargers Prepare to Face Eagles

Said Chargers tight end Hunter Henry: "Big challenge".

In the latest example of why the Los Angeles Chargers' move from San Diego remains one of the most inexplicable in recent sports history, the team is defending itself against charges that it's already tarping over sections of its stadium, the tiniest in the NFL. However, against a defense that is banged up in the secondary and coming off an emotional victory over the New York Giants in Week 3, Lynn might want to let Rivers run a no-huddle tempo early in the game to try to jumpstart this offense. 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.

The former Wisconsin Badger injured his knee in last Sunday's loss to the Chiefs.

The Spaniard was asked whether he would consider looking for a replacement left-back in January and replied: "We will see in January".

A long, scenic trip across the country awaits the Philadelphia Eagles (2-1) as they travel to the claustrophobic confines of a soccer stadium to take on the winless Los Angeles Chargers (0-3) at the StubHub Center in Carson, Calif. The 14-point loss to the Chiefs is their worst loss during that span, and five of games were decided by 7 points or less.

The Chargers is one in five teams that has yet to get a win in the NFL. Johnson is pretty stout himself on the other side of the line. Sunday, it should be the offense's turn to carry the load. Sproles is done for the season and Cox has been ruled out for this week with a calf strain. Los Angeles allowed 172 rushing yards to Kansas City rookie sensation Kareem Hunt and the high number of downfield tackles help explain linebacker Jatavis Brown's NFL-leading 36 tackles. Instead of being tied for second in the division, Los Angeles trails first by three games. Even in holding the Giants out of the end zone for three quarters, they never put any serious pass rush against what has been a lackluster NY offensive line. Those four turnovers directly led to 21 of the Packers' points, which shows how costly each was.

The Eagles were really lucky to survive last week with that win, and the Chargers backs are against the wall. Koo's misses (one was blocked) in the first two weeks cost his team the chance at a 2-0 start, while Elliott, who was only signed because of an injury to Caleb Sturgis, made an unforgettable game-winner from 61 against the Giants. K Jake Elliott's 61-yard field goal was the third-longest game-winner in National Football League history. What should scare the Eagles is how many pass yards and touchdowns they surrendered in the fourth quarter. TE Antonio Gates registered eight catches for 124 yards in the 2013 meeting against Eagles.
