Last week, the Bolts fell short 10-24 against the Kansas City Chiefs in front of a sellout crowd at the Stubhub Center. He has completed 64.7 percent of his third-down passes, has averaged 8.32 yards per attempt and thrown three touchdown passes and one interception. Though they rank next to last in run defense, the numbers are skewed by late plays, including Kareem Hunt's 69-yard run last week capping the Chiefs 24-10 win over the Chargers. "It's going to be different for all of us", Philly coach Doug Pederson said. No rookie had ever made one from that deep, and the kick was so improbable that Wentz told teammates he'd give Elliott his game check if he made it. Elliott refused the cash, but a portion will go to charity and a cool story gets a happy ending.
The immediate concern is the pass rush.
Remember last season, when the Eagles went what seemed like an entire month without recording a sack after being among the league's most productive in that area for the first part of the season? Presumably, Chargers running back Melvin Gordon will be making a comeback on Sunday.
This could (finally) be the week the Chargers' offense lives up to the considerable hype it amassed in the offseason. Normally that would mean this game should be an easy win, but there is nothing predictable about the Chargers.
Schwartz said they decide on a game-to-game basis if they'll have a corner travel to stay with one receiver.
The Chargers are struggling to gain popularity after moving from San Diego to Los Angeles. "That dude has taught me a lot", Barner said of Sproles.

Afghan special forces managed to repel the attackers, killing four in an ensuing gunbattle, officials said. It gave no further details. "Such statements are not supported by any evidence", the ministry said.
PREDICTION: The Chargers aren't going to go winless in their cozy new digs despite their late-game woes and their 9-26 mark since the 2015 season. Right tackle Joseph Barksdale, who missed last week's contest, is back, which bodes well for a line that has actually played halfway decent through three games.
For the Chargers to start winning games at this stage of the season would be driven by the hopes of landing a wild card spot.
Despite losing eight straight games and being plagued by turnovers, the Chargers are not to be overlooked. "I've been hearing about what's happened during the game from other people and online, but you don't need to watch the whole game to realize that the team is bad", Wood said.
The Eagles racked up 511 total yards while the Chargers put up 539. The Eagles are off to solid start, but they aren't celebrating.
Gordon, who has been held to 146 yards rushing (44 carries) and a pair of TD's through three games this season, has been battling a knee injury. If you don't trust your kicker then that changes your play-calling and it changes how desperate you become at the end of the game.
