Philadelphia Eagles at Los Angeles Chargers - 10/1/17 NFL Pick, Odds, and Prediction

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

They have since dedicated to the ground game in a major way, averaging 40 rushes per game in their past two outings.

Had they been able to win some of these games, the narrative would be different. What a difference a capable offensive coach makes, the thinking goes. Rivers has been sacked only four times in three games and also has a quick release, so Philadelphia's front four may have a tough time getting to him.

"They are learning from last year and even from this year even though we are four games in", Pederson said after the game. Six of their nine losses came against playoff teams (Cowboys, Bengals, Seahawks, Packers, Giants, Lions), all but one of them on the road. 16 carries for 136 yards, highlighted by a 68-yard "you can't touch me" run - plus he added a 20-yard catch earlier in the game. The defense gave up 14 points in the fourth quarter, allowing the Chargers to come within two points of tying the game.

The Chargers largely struggled on offense except for that gorgeous long TD pass from Rivers to Williams, who went in untouched.

What the rest of the teams in the NFC East, and the entire National Football League for that matter, must have noticed by now about the Philadelphia Eagles is that they have compiled their 3-1 record heading into the second quarter of the season at considerably less than full strength.

Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz finished 17-31 for 242 yards and one touchdown.

Pederson is proud of the way each unit is picking each other up. "Not so much what they play and what coverages, more of the guy and what gives you the best chance as far as attacking those guys". I really was just never in any kind of groove the whole day.

The El Rancho High School Marching Dons will perform the field show "Tribal Affect" at halftime, which will reflect tribal energy and ideologies and create a sense of community and the coming together of cultures, ideas, education and traditions, a team official said. The resiliency of this football team. That's what they're learning. The NFL's 2016 leader in rushing touchdowns was at the center of Philadelphia's attack this time. Ertz feels the team is more confident this season thanks to the additions during the offseason. However, with both the Cowboys and Redskins late in the year as well, it seems inevitable that this team will be one of the worst in the NFL. "A lot of fans here supporting us, and it helped us".

Fox play-by-play announcer Dick Stockton could not believe how loud the crowd was for the Eagles, asking, "Is this a road game for the Chargers?" before proclaiming, "the boos should be cheers in a Chargers home game".

For how long can the Eagles serve up gravy in the fourth quarter while still holding on for a win? As Charger fans know all too well, it was Manning who spurned the team more than a decade ago and ended up going to the Giants after saying he would not play in San Diego.

"It is really big for us without a doubt". I think Los Angeles finally gets Lynn the first dub of his career.

"We are turning the corner a bit". And we just stunk the first quarter of our season.
