Philadelphia Eagles versus LA Chargers: How to watch, radio call

02 October 2017

Those players are Philip Rivers, Keenan Allen, Antonio Gates, Jahleel Addae, Corey Liuget, Nick Foles, Zach Ertz, Brent Celek, Najee Goode, Mychal Kendricks, and Fletcher Cox - who will not dress this weekend.

"In a way you can say we're struggling because we are 0-3 and we're not averaging that many points, but if you watch each play as its own play ... you see a lot of good things", although "none of us in here are sitting there and going "We're doing a lot of good things" and feel good about that", Rivers said.

In order to win, the Bolts offense must maintain dominance for all four quarters. On the Chargers' first possession, defensive end Chris Long blind-sided quarterback Philip Rivers for a strip-sack at the Philadelphia 41.

The Eagles (2-1) rookie kicker Jake Elliott, booted a franchise-record 61-yard field goal as time expired to lift Philadelphia to a 27-24 win over the New York Giants.

Los Angeles Chargers quaterback Philip Rivers kneeling at StubHub Center on September 24. Offensive mistakes were the culprit for their defeat. He threw three interceptions in a bad loss a week ago. He has rushed for 118 yards on 26 carries and scored a touchdown. Wide receiver Travis Benjamin earned five receptions for 105 yards.

Carson Wentz threw for 300-plus yards in his first two starts of 2017 but Philly beat the Giants last week thanks largely to their running game that rolled up 193 yards (even without injured former Aztec Donnel Pumphrey). Cornerback Terrance Mitchell made nine total tackles and defended four passes. But with Phillip Rivers scrambling away from pressure, Chris Long closed the gap much faster than Rivers expected and stripped the ball as Rivers drew back his arm to pass. Derek Barnett recovered, and the Eagles began an eight-play, 68-yard touchdown drive.

This is the 12th meeting between the teams with the Chargers holding a 7-4 edge. It's exactly the impact play the Chargers were banking on when they gave Ingram a four-year deal potentially worth $66 million. The Chargers pass rush should be a factor again - Philadelphia has allowed 11 sacks.

The Chargers uprooted themselves from San Diego and moved to Los Angeles with dollar signs in their eyes. Gordon outran the Chiefs defense to score a touchdown for Los Angeles. The Chargers are hoping for a happy ending with their rookie kicker, Younghoe Koo, after a blocked kick in Week 1 and a pair of misses in Week 2 had some rightfully wondering if the Chargers were going to make a change.
