Chargers continue to drop in USA Today's Week 4 NFL power rankings

They are 0-3 on the season, and they have lost their last eight games dating back to last season. That's not going to happen in the AFC West this year.

Coaches and players said they wouldn't take the Chargers lightly this week.

Chargers tight end Antonio Gates (85) is unable to catch the ball. Basically, they'll be Screech. The Eagles (2-1) will try to hold off the Chargers (0-3) on Sunday (FOX, 4:05 p.m.) on the road. All three are crucial towards the success of the Eagles secondary.

1,150 - The last time these two teams met in 2013 they combined for 1,150 total net yards. Continue on for keys to a Philadelphia Eagles victory. 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. "They've been in every game and were one play away from winning two of them".

After a 3-3 tie at the end of the first, Rivers spotted Eddie Royal for the game's first touchdown early in the second.

The Eagles offensive line has allowed their quarterback to be sacked 11 times, which is fifth most in the NFL.

For the Chargers, the first three games of the season turned into nightmares in one form or another. Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz is one of the best young quarterbacks in the National Football League and also one of the slickest.

The immediate concern is the pass rush. The only team allowing more rushing yards per game than the Bolts?

Pederson has his fingers crossed that Cox's injury won't linger. Pretty soon, ex-Chargers fans will no longer feel the need to keep tuning in, making ratings nearly non-existent. This should be a high scoring affair come Sunday so getting the passing game established with Carson Wentz will be critical; Jeffery should be the man to make it happen. Blount had 67 yards against NY while Smallwood stunningly racked up 71 on 12 carries after entering the contest with eight yards on seven carries.

These two rookie kickers have been intimately involved in their team's fortunes to this point. Kelce has a tough matchup today against two good interior linemen in Corey Liuget and Brandon Mebane. At home, with a chip on their shoulder, the Giants may be able to handle the Chargers easily. Meanwhile, the Eagles have a future Hall of Famer in ... hang on I'm looking up his name ...

Have thoughts on how the Chargers and Eagles are performing?

Of course, upsets happen and the Chargers will win one of these games that they should have no chance in. Younghoe Koo missed a field goal that could have won the game against the Miami Dolphins and a personal foul penalty by Rayshawn Jenkins on a missed field goal extended a drive for the Kansas City Chiefs.
