Los Angeles Chargers: Should LA tank if they lose week four?

In spite of what turned out to be a solid ass kicking, the Chargers still racked up five sacks in the game and 8.5 tackles for a loss. On the flip side, the Eagles used a last gasp 61 yard field goal to escape NY with a win. That leaves veteran special teams standout Chris Maragos at safety for the second straight game, and rookie Rasul Douglas starting at cornerback against a pretty good fleet of receivers including Keenan Allen.

The StubHub Center is home to Major League Soccer's Los Angeles Galaxy and seats about 27,000, making it the puniest stadium in the NFL. Don't be surprised if the Chargers spring the upset with the Eagles traveling across the country for a late start. He's posted a sack in each game this season, and had a career-high three last week against the Kansas City Chiefs. Can Rivers duplicate these numbers against the Eagles defense? Yes. The Chargers may not win, but Rivers' numbers will be gaudy.

Earlier this week, the Green Bay Packers and Chicago Bears got Week 4 off to a start on NFL Thursday Night Football.

Sophomore and San Diego native Carter Wood has already let go of the need to watch the Chargers play. "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. The Chargers can't give Philadelphia's offense the short field. Barner, who played with Sproles on the Eagles and was cut by the Chargers this month, might return punts. Torrey Smith has three of their six drops. "How to approach meetings".

Rivers didn't improve as the game went on.

"I've said this for a long time about Jalen: I love his competitiveness", defensive coordinator Jim Schwartz said.

The Philadelphia Eagles are coming off one of their biggest games of the young season and maybe in the history of Lincoln Financial Field.

"We haven't made a decision yet as to the direction that we're going to go", Pederson said. We've already seen several other fan bases descend upon the Chargers temporary home. That means a small number of plays are the difference between the Chargers being a contender and the team that is on its way to a third-consecutive season at the bottom of the AFC West. The Chargers pass rush should be a factor again - Philadelphia has allowed 11 sacks.

The Eagles' secondary did just enough to win the game last week. Just keep it close and leave it to the kickers and Philly wins this one without trouble. One that by all accounts has not gone well thus far, and becoming a wild card team and not winning the Super Bowl would be even more of a letdown. Usually one of the best third-down offenses in football, the Chargers are now at 30.3 percent (10 of 33) with the chance to extend drives.
