Philadelphia Eagles vs. Los Angeles Chargers: LA fights to end the drought

Los Angeles Chargers Interested in Free Agent Cornerback Darrelle Revis
If you can even consider this a road game.
All of those characteristics are useful to the job, but none is as valuable as the ability to diagnose an opponent, formulate a game plan, teach that game plan to one's players, and then call it in a manner that looks pretty on TV.
It was amusing to listen to some of the criticism leveled at the Eagles coach this past offseason.
So "iffy" was that kick from Elliott that quarterback Carson Wentz offered his game check to his rookie teammate if he made that kick. Yet all of those observations would often come before a transition that went something like, "Now, on the other hand, let's talk about the coach", as if Wentz had built his own National Football League playbook from scratch, taught it to his teammates, and tailored it to each week's opponent while running film sessions himself.
"He's worked on it", Pederson said. But the notion that Wentz's success came despite his head coach flies in the face of logic. 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. Through four games, the Chargers have held a lead for barely 30 minutes. The NFL schedule is a amusing thing. The defense has not caused a turnover in the last two games and has only two for the season, both of which came against Denver in the fourth quarter and both of which led to touchdowns for the Chargers.
Rivers threw his first interception on the third play of the first quarter, picked off by corner Terrance Mitchell. Since the beginning of the season, The Chargers has only scored three touchdowns in the second half, two coming from their 21-24 loss to the Denver Broncos. "They're learning from this year even though we're only 4 games in". It stands to reason that Goodell was in Carson to see for himself just how bad the reception for the Chargers in Los Angeles has been. Members of the California-based Courage Campaign, Democracy for America, activists from Black Lives Matter and other organizations participated in the protest ahead of the game, which started around 1 p.m. Demonstrators said they are aiming to re-center the protest on ending police violence against people.
Like Smallwood, several other players said it was during early warmups when they began to realize Sunday's game wasn't going to be a normal road game. They went to the Super Bowl once after the 1994 season and were trounced by Steve Young, Jerry Rice and the 49ers. The bad teams have coaches who, at some point, were hired by a team that thought it could find an upgrade over the previous guy.
The photo was heavily shared on social media because it's embarrassing for the Chargers and shows how little attendance they have. What a difference a capable offensive coach makes, the thinking goes. "If they keep them there, we're bound to win and hopefully that starts Sunday".
Through four games, Wentz's arm has been a difference-maker. But for Pederson, credit seems to be due. Maybe he's doing it all on his own.
