3 keys for Chargers offense vs. Eagles

Posted October 02, 2017

This is the season for the Chargers. Whether that translates to anything on the field is to be seen, but this LA experiment has failed so far in the stands, not that an 0-3 start has given fans much to cheer about either. Last year, they converted just 21.3 percent of their third-and-longs, which was a big reason why they finished 20th in third-down efficiency (37.9 percent). However, what the photo shows is nothing new since the start of the season. Tight end Antonio Gates put up 124 yards for the Chargers. Basically, they'll be Screech.

The Eagles are 2-5 SU and 1-6 ATS in their last seven games against the Chargers.

So where can the Philadelphia Eagles capitalize in Sunday's game to pick up a win? All three are crucial towards the success of the Eagles secondary. Wide receiver Travis Benjamin earned five receptions for 105 yards. The Eagles also will be without key reserves on the defensive line and at cornerback, meaning Philip Rivers should be able to get the offense into a rhythm that doesn't resemble your awkward parents at a wedding.

numberFire's models project Gordon for 108.2 yards from scrimmage and 0.62 touchdowns versus the Eagles for a total of 16.4 FanDuel points at a cost of $7,500 in Week 4. They have the highest-scoring offense, a young duo at quarterback and running back and arguably the best defensive player in the league. The Eagles most likely won't be that run-heavy in this one, but the balance could help them down the road.

The Chargers are struggling to gain popularity after moving from San Diego to Los Angeles.

And, of course, there's quarterback Philip Rivers, who hasn't lost a step at age 35.

"I'm very confident this team is going to turn around", Lynn said. When Cox was hurt Sunday, they didn't sack Giants passer Eli Manning. The Chargers pass rush should be a factor again - Philadelphia has allowed 11 sacks. The only team allowing more rushing yards per game than the Bolts? "But we got to win one first".

The Los Angeles Chargers will battle against the Philadelphia Eagles tomorrow at the StubHub Center.

Pederson has his fingers crossed that Cox's injury won't linger.

Eagle can keep the Chargers losing streak going. A kick from rookie Younghoe Koo would edge up the Chargers to 10 points right before halftime. Guys are getting way too close to blocks way too often and with a youngster that can cause a little case of the yips (and you can't blame the kid for that at all).

"He's a great competitor", said Chargers outside linebacker Kyle Emanuel, Wentz's teammate at North Dakota State. Meanwhile, the Eagles have a future Hall of Famer in ... hang on I'm looking up his name ...

FAST FACTS: Eagles WR Alshon Jeffery had 10 receptions for 152 yards against the Chargers in 2015 as a member of the Chicago Bears. With the loss against Kansas City, the Eagles have been defeated three games in a row by AFC teams.
