Philadelphia Eagles Surviving Despite Injuries vs. Los Angeles Chargers

Ben Higgins: NFL could put Chargers back in San Diego if they wanted Los Angeles Chargers Interested in Free Agent Cornerback Darrelle Revis

More than 25,000 people witnessed the Philadelphia Eagles defeat the Chargers 19-10 on a warm breezy Sunday at Stub Hub Center.

The stimulus for Rivers outburst was the inability or refusal on Wisenhunt's part to call a play on fourth down fast enough to avoid a delay of game penalty. It's also one of the only times that the object of his wrath was obviously a coach.

Chargers fans in San Diego are sipping their tea watching the franchise struggle to find fans in Los Angeles.

Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers finished 22-38, for 347 yards passing and two touchdowns in the loss.

Philip Rivers would show off his arm on the next possession when he found Tyrell Williams for a 75-yard touchdown to trim the Eagles lead to 13-7.

The game can be heard nationally on SiriuxXM Radio.

It started with the Miami Dolphins, when some Chargers' players initially thought Younghoe Koo had made his potential winning field goal attempt from 44 yards because of the Dolphins' fans screaming their approval when his kick sailed wide right. Running back Melvin Gordon rushed 17 carries for 79 yards and one touchdown.

The Eagles ran for 199 yards on 41 carries as a team.

Philadelphia defensive ends Fletcher Cox and Destiny Vaeao will not play tomorrow.

The Eagles improved to 3-1 after taking care of business in Carson, California with a 26-24 win over the Chargers.

It never came. The Chargers went scoreless in the second half. In spite of what turned out to be a solid ass kicking, the Chargers still racked up five sacks in the game and 8.5 tackles for a loss.

The Chargers did not melt down offensively, like they did a week ago against Kansas City.

For the third straight week, the visiting team was welcomed to a very friendly crowd. That means a small number of plays are the difference between the Chargers being a contender and the team that is on its way to a third-consecutive season at the bottom of the AFC West. With victories over the Washington Redskins and Giants already to their name, they opened the week with a 49 percent chance to win the division - 20 percentage points higher than the next-closest team, the Cowboys, according to ESPN's FPI. They do turn in exciting conclusions with electrifying performances by talented players like Keenan Allen.

Had they been able to win some of these games, the narrative would be different.

It likely has to do with the Chargers relocation.

The self-proclaimed "Fight For LA" is going poorly for the winless Los Angeles Chargers, who will be challenged by Philadelphia both on and off the field at their suburban soccer pitch on Sunday.

For the team to win, they simply can't keep walking this path.

Defensively, coordinator Jim Schwartz has dialed up way more winners than losers. This would make it hard for a healthy fan base to ever be cultivated. They could be wary of throwing their support behind him. "A lot of fans here supporting us, and it helped us".
