Chargers Prepare to Face Eagles

Eagles vs. Chargers Four things to watch on defense

Eagles vs. Chargers Four things to watch on defense

He will attempt to bounce back when the Eagles come to town on Sunday.

The Eagles offensive line has allowed their quarterback to be sacked 11 times, which is fifth most in the NFL.

Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers made 20 throws for 237 yards and three interceptions.

Considering what the Giants did in the fourth quarter, Lynn would have to be a complete moron to come up with any gameplan that didn't have Rivers picking this Philly team apart.

The Eagles are 2-5 SU and 1-6 ATS in their last seven games against the Chargers. This one should be an exciting game, but the Eagles should go West and win a close one on Sunday.

Eli Manning threw for 366 yards and three touchdowns last week at the Linc. Can Rivers duplicate these numbers against the Eagles defense? Yes.

"I've said this for a long time about Jalen: I love his competitiveness", defensive coordinator Jim Schwartz said.

The bad news for Doug Pederson and the Eagles is that they'll be without arguably their most explosive backfield weapon in Darren Sproles, who is done for the season after breaking his arm and tearing his ACL in Week 3. "He's showed natural aptitude for it early both from a protection standpoint and from a route-running standpoint". Younghoe Koo missed a field goal that could have won the game against the Miami Dolphins and a personal foul penalty by Rayshawn Jenkins on a missed field goal extended a drive for the Kansas City Chiefs.

And, despite being minus-three in turnover margin, the Chargers still had chances to tie the Chiefs in the closing minutes. Not to mention that those who do actually attend their games have been left disappointed because they keep losing.

Tim Jernigan and Beau Allen will start at defensive tackle for the Eagles. Stud defensive tackle Fletcher Cox is out and several members of their secondary (Ronald Darby, Jaylen Watkins and Corey Graham) won't play. The Chargers pass rush is no joke but their run defense could headline at The Ice House in Pasadena.

It's hard to judge the defensive performance from Los Angeles last week.

Sophomore and San Diego native Carter Wood has already let go of the need to watch the Chargers play. One thing Philadelphia's offensive line can not afford to do is expose Wentz to hits.

Peters ran the ball for 38 yards, setting the Kansas City offense up at the Chargers' 34-yard line. DE Joey Bosa has 19 tackles for loss since entering the National Football League in 2016, tied for fifth most during the span. LB Jatavis Brown has 10 or more tackles in four of his last five contests. 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.
