If any Chargers don't stand for the anthem, "that's on them".
Before last Sunday's game, the players "wanted to do something just to show we were against divisive remarks by anybody and to stand together as one unit", Lynn said. Chargers defensive coordinator Gus Bradley will be sending pressure all game long especially with defensive end Melvin Ingram on fire right now with 5.5 sacks, second in the National Football League, and Joey Bosa wreaking havoc on opposing offensive lines.
- Jake Elliott's 61-yard field goal against the Giants was the longest in franchise history. If the Eagles sell out to stop Gordon, something Miami did in Week 2, Rivers could have a monster bounce-back game after a three-interception day that could've been even worse against Kansas City.
- Carson Wentz has thrown for 300-plus yards and two touchdowns in back-to-back road games. On 44 attempts, Melvin Gordon has rushed for only 144-yards and two touchdowns.
"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". They started 3-0 in 2016 and finished the season with a 7-9 record. He had three sacks against the Chiefs and his speed on the edge makes it hard for tackles to deal with him one-on-one.
"It's going to be a hard-fought game", Eagles leading pass rusher Brandon Graham said. However, the Eagles are without Darren Sproles, one of their two veteran ballcarriers and the best overall fit for their scheme. Sproles is done for the year with a torn left ACL and broken left forearm he sustained on the same play in Week 3.
So, will Los Angeles be able to move the ball and put points on the board, something it struggled to do a week ago (10 points) against unbeaten Kansas City? Ingram plays to the open side, Bosa to the tight end side. He has historically ranked among the NFL's best QBs at combating the blitz. The Birds have had their defense decimated by injuries, and their secondary will be their most vulnerable position on Sunday. However, the contest was not as competitive as most neutrals would have liked, and the Packers eased to a comfortable 35-14 victory.
When play began, the Chargers offense began on the 25-yard line in front of the end zone largely populated by Eagles fans, and it was obvious that the noise impacted their ability communicate pre-snap. It was a costly turnover as the Chiefs scored a touchdown four plays later.
FAST FACTS: Eagles WR Alshon Jeffery had 10 receptions for 152 yards against the Chargers in 2015 as a member of the Chicago Bears.
Realistically, there are only four games the Chargers theoretically have a chance in.
Odell Beckham Jr. of the Giants was fined $12,154 for that dog-style TD celebration last week. "We own Los Angeles".
The Frank Reich factor: He served as the quarterbacks coach for the Chargers for a season and the offensive coordinator for two years before being let go after the 2015 season.
Unfortunately for the five fans of the L.A. Chargers, it looks like their home stadium has been taken over been Eagles fans, and this doesn't feel like a home game anymore.
