Chargers continue to drop in USA Today's Week 4 NFL power rankings

Chargers continue to drop in USA Today's Week 4 NFL power rankings

Antonio Gates of the Chargers has spent most of his career as the best tight end on the field but there is no question Ertz is the best at the position inside the StubHub Center this Sunday.

In other words, Philly has performed well versus good teams, with the worst of the first three opponents being the New York Giants. Safety Rodney McLeod is expected to play against the Bolts, which is big news. Even in holding the Giants out of the end zone for three quarters, they never put any serious pass rush against what has been a lackluster NY offensive line. In the most recent game against the divisional rival Kansas City Chiefs, the Chargers were greeted with a "Chiefs Kingdom!" chant from a crowd comprised mainly of Kansas City fans. The following week, the Dolphins came to town and Rivers' team ended up on the losing side again. Going back to the 2016 season, the Chargers have lost 14 of their last 19 games play, but most of those contests have been close.

CHASING RIVERS: After posting eight sacks in the first two games, the Eagles' fierce pass rush didn't take Eli Manning down. He completed just 20 of 40 passes for 237 yards, no touchdowns and three picks.

"I'm sick about the way I've played, I'm sick that we haven't scored enough points, but I'm super fired up about the way our defense is playing and continuing to hold teams", Rivers said.

The Eagles sit at 2-1 with two NFC East wins under their belts. The Chargers also have the home-field advantage and they're incredibly desperate because their season will be over if they lose this game. "If they keep them there, we're bound to win and hopefully that starts Sunday". It is hard to say. Once the game is over, join us for the Postgame Show presented by Ricoh as we'll provide highlights, analysis, and head coach Doug Pederson's and quarterback Carson Wentz's press conferences. Fletcher Cox is a massive loss for the defensive front in both the run game and the pass game.

Note: Beau Allen will replace Cox in the starting lineup alongside Tim Jernigan. River launched a 44-yard pass to Benjamin, a penalty on the Chiefs would push Los Angeles to Kansas City's 11-yard line. On Sunday, the team's security at the StubHub Center denied "Boltman", a life-long Chargers fan known for his eye-catching (albeit quite frightening) costume, entry into the stadium for wearing the very mask that made him a fan favorite in San Diego and a league-wide attraction.

- Eagles offensive tackles Jason Peters and Lane Johnson have collectively given up just one sack, two hits and five hurries, according to PFF. Defensive ends Melvin Ingram and Joey Bosa have 7 1/2 of them, including 5 1/2 by Ingram.

The Eagles quarterback to date in his short career has thrown for 21 touchdowns against 16 interceptions, accounting for 816 yards through three games this season. Those three teams all have offensive lines that are not on par with the Eagles' offensive line - which played at an elite level last week. The Eagles most likely won't be that run-heavy in this one, but the balance could help them down the road.
