Chargers vs. Eagles: How they match up

Covered Seahawks for Tacoma News Tribune for six seasons. The Chargers are one of five teams that are winless this season. Basically, they'll be Screech. At 0-2, the Chargers traveled to Denver to face the Broncos and lost 27-24 in a tight game.

"Don't worry about the 0-3, don't worry about what the percentages are of teams that bounce back, don't worry about the other teams in the division, just go play, find a way to win a game and hopefully we can start a little bit of a run". All three are crucial towards the success of the Eagles secondary. He's posted a sack in each game this season, and had a career-high three last week against the Kansas City Chiefs. Wide receiver Travis Benjamin earned five receptions for 105 yards. Most Chargers stood and linked arms in a show of solidarity during the anthem before the team's home game against the Kansas City Chiefs just one week ago. The Bolts' already ineffective running game won't get any better with Melvin Gordon at less than 100% with a knee issue so he'll have to throw it again a lot against Philly.

Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers made 20 throws for 237 yards and three interceptions. Rivers has been sacked only four times in three games and also has a quick release, so Philadelphia's front four may have a tough time getting to him.

Pass protection has been strong, allowing four sacks this season despite Rivers dropping back nearly an average of 40 times a game.

Remember last season, when the Eagles went what seemed like an entire month without recording a sack after being among the league's most productive in that area for the first part of the season? These two teams will meet up on Sunday, and the Chargers are hoping to grab their first win of the season. The games were played at Toyota Stadium in Frisco, Texas, an 18,000-seat venue that is home to MLS's FC Dallas.

By definition, being a National Football League wild card pick means a team is given a chance to continue competing when in all actuality, their regular season performance did not qualify them. "But we got to win one first".

The Los Angeles Chargers are heading into their week four match-up against the Philadelphia Eagles with their season potentially on the line.

Pederson has his fingers crossed that Cox's injury won't linger. Chargers head coach Anthony Lynn said running back Melvin Gordon will play this Sunday.

Eagle can keep the Chargers losing streak going. There were plenty of Dolphins and Chiefs fans for the first two home games, and there should be plenty of green in the stands Sunday. Smallwood rushed for 71 yards on 12 carries.

These two rookie kickers have been intimately involved in their team's fortunes to this point.

"He's a great competitor", said Chargers outside linebacker Kyle Emanuel, Wentz's teammate at North Dakota State.
