LeGarrette Blount Runs Philadelphia Eagles To Win Over San Diego

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

And the stadium filled mostly with fans clad in green Philadelphia Eagles' gear chanting "Let's go Eagles" - basically taking over the facility in terms of crowd noise with their team salting away a 26-24 victory at the end of the game. The pass was originally called incomplete but after a challenge from Los Angeles the call was overturned. The graduate of Marshall High School has enjoyed a successful career, leading his teams to the playoffs 12 times in 18 years. The players have the day off but head coach Doug Pederson will address the media at noon right here on the Eagles' website.

Check out this video from the San Diego Union-Tribune, on location at the StubHub Center. They travel so well for every game. But if we're honest, does anyone out there feel like this team has any chance to do that? Until we prove it differently, we are... This group has a lot of character. Both tackles have their work cut out for them.

On Sunday, it was quarterback Philip Rivers who made the costly mistakes in the loss with three first half interceptions.

The Chargers' offense finally got it going in this one as Philip Rivers was able to hit his targets down the field. Austin Ekeler's 35 yard touchdown, his only carry of the game, accounted for most of the Chargers measly 58 yards on the ground. That should be a concern for the Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz. Wentz has passed for 816 yards and five touchdowns against two interceptions, with tight end Zach Ertz tied for third in the National Football League with 21 receptions. Their most recent win on the road against the Chargers is an example of how the team has matured. He threw a third interception in the second quarter and almost had a couple of other passes picked off later in the game. It was a solid all-around game for the Birds, who dominated minus a few big plays. "It's going to be tough sledding for those guys". Playing in their temporary digs in Carson, California, the Chargers can't afford a 6-10 or worse season. He was wrong. The Chargers were the ones getting booed in their own makeshift stadium.




On the defensive side of the ball, the Philadelphia Eagles were very up and down. The Chargers have made it once since 2009, winning a 2013 Wild Card Game and then losing a second-rounder in Denver to the Broncos. Special teams blew it in weeks one and two. As a comparison, the Chiefs have five plays of more than 50 yards in the first three games and one turnover on offense. The Chiefs were up by 14 after four plays. Their defense was spotty, but only gave up two touchdowns. Blount picked up a key first down in the final moments. The running game has struggled, so changes could be coming at any of the positions involved - the offensive line, the backfield, receivers and tight ends. If the kickoff team just downs the ball in the end zone they will start at the 25-yard line. The "Fight For LA" marketing campaign has seemed to add pressure to the need to win right now. It should hold true for Pederson, too (it's also worth mentioning that, one week after the Eagles beat the Redskins on the road, the Rams lost to them at home). It is a process that will take time, maybe years. How much easier will it be for them when they finally get their full complement of safeties back?

This Sunday will be another challenge for the Chargers.

Alshon Jeffery caught an 8-yard TD pass to cap the Eagles' opening drive after the Philly defense stripped Rivers on the game's first possession.
