Philadelphia Eagles: Keys to a victory over the Chargers

Rams' attendance decline is NFL's worst in 25 years, and by a wide margin

Posted: Sep. 28, 2017 8:00 am Updated: Sep. Philadelphia will be without some key players on defense in Week 4 against the Los Angeles Chargers. They are also coming off a victory against rival NY last weekend, where rookie kicker made a 61-yard field goal to win it as time expired.

The Eagles squeaked out a win in Week 3 against a divisional opponent, improving to 2-1 on the season and, more importantly, 2-0 against the NFC East.

I like the Chargers' ability to lose this game more than I like the Eagles' ability to win it. In the season opener at Denver, his potential tying kick from 44 yards was blocked.

We've heard all about the Chargers struggling to fill the tiny StubHub Center with a capacity of 27,167. For the time being, they're playing in a soccer stadium, and the Philadelphia Eagles are scheduled for a visit in week three of the 2017 National Football League season. There were plenty of Dolphins and Chiefs fans for the first two home games, and there should be plenty of green in the stands Sunday. Head coach Doug Pederson said the Eagles will have internal discussions in the coming days over how to proceed. "It's a smaller venue in that 27,000-30,000 range".

The Eagles have an edge in nearly every category in this one, but having to adjust to their injuries, traveling literally to the other side of the country, and playing in an alien environment like the StubHub Center - which usually hosts MLS games - just gives this game a bad vibe. CB Jalen Mills recorded a career-best 12 tackles last Sunday versus the Giants. Rivers is reacquainting himself with wideout Keenan Allen (19 catches) after the latter's ACL injury in 2016 but the Chargers have just six pass plays of 20 or more yards - three by Travis Benjamin. That was a very hard game to play the way we were doing it, because we were trying to limit their ability to make big plays. "If they keep them there, we're bound to win and hopefully that starts Sunday".

The Chargers are 0-3, but they are nowhere near as bad as their record would indicate. Sure, if they were to miraculously win the Super Bowl as a wild card team, fans would be ecstatic regardless of how they got there. I think Los Angeles finally gets Lynn the first dub of his career. "How to approach meetings".

Pep Guardiola reveals the team he would love to manage
While taking a bit of a dig at United, the Catalan boss also admitted he is under pressure to deliver at City. That is our feeling right now. "We created a lot but we didn't score the goals ".

Reich's experience with the Chargers could also offer the Eagles' defense some extra insight. But Manning didn't give them a chance by getting the ball out of his hands quickly. Defensive coordinator Jim Schwartz needs to make sure he has the right plan to contain Rivers, or it can get ugly.

Pass protection has been strong, allowing four sacks this season despite Rivers dropping back nearly an average of 40 times a game. It can affect you a little bit. "It goes both ways". The Bolts simply haven't been able to get off the field. Both teams are vastly different from that matchup four years ago, and the Chargers don't even play in the same city anymore. The Chargers have a guy that goes by the name of Joey Bosa. It was a costly turnover as the Chiefs scored a touchdown four plays later.

Rivers threw three interceptions in loss to Chiefs.

If you want to watch this one, tune in to your local FOX station at 4:05 p.m. EST. "If Spanos were to sell the team and the new owner [were to] move them back to San Diego, I think people would embrace the team with open arms, which would likely mean higher ratings and more interest in local sports media", said Roth.

The Chargers listed Gordon (knee), Barksdale (foot), linebacker Hayes Pullard (knee) and tight end Sean McGrath (foot) questionable. The teams traded field goals, and the game ended in stunning fashion with rookie Jake Elliott's 61-yard field goal just crawling over the crossbar.

NEW DIGS, OLD PROBLEM: The Chargers have lost 26 of their last 35 games dating to the start of the 2015 season.
