Eagles treat fans to solid early effort

Copycat League Will Teams Attack Eagles D the Way Giants Did

Ahead of the Chargers' game against the Eagles on Sunday, Philly writer Les Bowen shared a photo on Twitter of the StubHub Center in Carson, Calif., which showed tarps covering sections of seats towards the top.

If you want to watch this one, tune in to your local FOX station at 4:05 p.m. EST. Philadelphia leads the league in time of possession, averaging 34 minutes, 12 seconds per game, and in plays with 10 or more yards, 53. The Eagles should win this one handily but do not be surprised if it is one of those unusual afternoons where the Eagles just never get going. Chargers will get their first win of the year and Rivers will be back to his old self. The Chargers can't seem to make a field goal with the game hanging in the balance.

These two teams have only met one another five times in the regular season in the past, with the Panthers leading the all time series 3-2. But don't let that fact fool you.

LeGarette Blount has yet to break out to his 2016 form in a green Eagles uniform this season.

KEYS TO THE GAME: Philadelphia will be looking for a bounce-back performance from second-year quarterback Carson Wentz, who passed for just 176 yards in last week's victory over the New York Giants after topping 300 in each of the first two games.

Here's where the problem lies for Philadelphia. One area the former Stanford standout needs to improve at is finding the end zone.

While the Chargers as a whole are underwhelming, the Eagles are not at full strength heading into this game after losing Fletcher Cox and Darren Sproles in week three.

The Chargers offense has not scored more than 21 points in a game this season. Quarterback Philip Rivers, who has thrown four touchdowns, but also four interceptions, including three in the loss to Kansas City. I don't know if Rivers will be able to replicate those numbers - his receiving corps isn't almost as talented - but he won't need to be that good in order to hit the over here. Way to waste the waning years of Rivers' career. River launched a 44-yard pass to Benjamin, a penalty on the Chiefs would push Los Angeles to Kansas City's 11-yard line. Chargers defensive coordinator Gus Bradley will be sending pressure all game long especially with defensive end Melvin Ingram on fire right now with 5.5 sacks, second in the National Football League, and Joey Bosa wreaking havoc on opposing offensive lines.

Lynn will have to, at some point, figure out what he has in Rivers and turn him loose.

Starting running back Melvin Gordon was never a threat to miss the game.

The result moved the Packer to 3-1, which leaves them in a solid position as they look to consolidate their good start to the season over the coming month and ensure they get one hand on a postseason spot as soon as possible. Just because they're 0-3 doesn't mean the Eagles are overlooking them.
