Chargers Lose Another Crowd and Another Game

Ben Higgins: NFL could put Chargers back in San Diego if they wanted

Ahead of the Chargers' game against the Eagles on Sunday, Philly writer Les Bowen shared a photo on Twitter of the StubHub Center in Carson, Calif., which showed tarps covering sections of seats towards the top. They'll come to the party with two fewer candles as All-Pro defensive tackle Fletcher Cox (calf) will skip this week and running back-kick returner Darren Sproles (ACL) is done for the year.

The Bolts looked all week for ways to improve and flawless their offense. "They're learning from this year even though we're only 4 games in".

Chargers first-year coach Anthony Lynn gave a lot of preseason lip service to being more of a run-based team behind Melvin Gordon. "Again, these are two fine pass rushers".

On the opening drive, Philip Rivers was stripped by the Eagles defense as they recovered on their own 32 yard line. So it's not all that surprising to hear Chargers players are getting fed up with having no fan support. Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz managed the offense well and the team didn't turn the ball over. If the kickoff team just downs the ball in the end zone they will start at the 25-yard line.

Lynn, on the other hand, is just trying to find a way to win his first regular season game as the Charger head coach.

The Eagles are 0-4 ATS in their last four games against a team with a losing record and 1-4 in their last five games ATS in October while the Chargers are 5-18 ATS in their last 23 home games and 0-7-1 ATS in their last eight games overall.

Linebacker Jatavis Brown had a huge defensive play late in the second quarter on Wentz, that set up a 54 yard made field goal by Jake Elliott. The veteran running back and punt returner began his career with the Chargers, so he would have been facing a handful of former teammates this weekend. The Eagles led the Chargers 16-10 at halftime. The offense is bailing out the defense, the defense is bailing out the offense, and special teams sometimes bails out everybody. Yet it wasn't consistent enough to score on that drive as Los Angeles was forced to punt.

University of Florida Gators 38-24 win over Vanderbilt

N to re-elect Nawaz as party president today
The bill was presented by Minister for Law and Justice Zahid Hamid in the parliament where it was smoothly passed by the lawmakers.

The Chargers finally looked (a little) like the have the offense people thought they would have, especially in the second half, when Rivers made a string of low-risk passes to receivers in positions when they could extend plays with their legs.

The scoring in the fourth quarter started when Chargers reserve running back Austin Ekeler sprinted through the middle of the Eagles' defense for a 35-yard touchdown to cut the Eagles' lead to 19-17, and the Eagles' lead could have been in danger.

Be cautiously optimistic. Philadelphia is allowing just 75 yards per contest to opposing running games through three weeks.

Every time an Eagles player ran to or from the tunnel, the crowd went nuts. Three plays later, Rivers short pass down the middle to Hunter Henry was ruled out of bounds.

This Sunday will be another challenge for the Chargers. Wendell Smallwood's 2-yard plunge in the fourth quarter had forged a 26-17 Eagles lead.

Despite their attempt at victory, today provided no exception as the Chargers continue to search for a win next week.
