Rivers preaching positivity despite Chargers' 0-3 start

Rams' attendance decline is NFL's worst in 25 years, and by a wide margin

However, there is good news for Philly.

The Eagles listed linebacker Jordan Hicks (ankle) and safety Rodney McLeod (hamstring) questionable.

The Eagles have running back depth, just not the explosiveness Sproles gave them in the run and pass game.

The Eagles are catching Rivers after he threw three interceptions and no touchdowns with a 37.2 quarterback rating against Kansas City last week.

The Eagles are 0-4 ATS in their last four games against a team with a losing record and 1-4 in their last five games ATS in October while the Chargers are 5-18 ATS in their last 23 home games and 0-7-1 ATS in their last eight games overall. The best fans should hope for is to see some level of improvement game by game so that they do not end up finishing last in the league. Second year quarterback Carson Wentz didn't light up the stat sheet, but he was efficient, completing 21 of 31 passes for 176 yards and a touchdown and spreading the ball around to six different receivers. Rivers is 2-0 against the Eagles and considerably more explosive than Manning.

"I've said this for a long time about Jalen: I love his competitiveness", defensive coordinator Jim Schwartz said.

After two close losses to start the season, the Chargers appeared listless in a 24-10 home defeat at the hands of the Chiefs. "He's showed natural aptitude for it early both from a protection standpoint and from a route-running standpoint".

The Chargers can't even blame Koo for their problems last week when they lost 24-10 to Kansas City.

And, despite being minus-three in turnover margin, the Chargers still had chances to tie the Chiefs in the closing minutes. It is hard to say.

Philadelphia head coach Doug Pederson committed to the run last Sunday against the Giants and it paid off to the tune of 193 rushing yards and a considerable edge (37:32 to 22:28) in the time of possession department. Those players are Philip Rivers, Keenan Allen, Antonio Gates, Jahleel Addae, Corey Liuget, Nick Foles, Zach Ertz, Brent Celek, Najee Goode, Mychal Kendricks, and Fletcher Cox - who will not dress this weekend. The Chargers pass rush should be a factor again - Philadelphia has allowed 11 sacks. He's too much of a competitor not to bounce back from that ugly performance last week, and the Eagles secondary is hanging by a thread after Odell Beckham Jr. and Sterling Shepard shredded them a week ago.

"I'm very confident this team is going to turn around", Lynn said. One thing Philadelphia's offensive line can not afford to do is expose Wentz to hits.

One of the bigger concerns for the Chargers is Hunter Henry's inability to get into a groove at tight end.

The Chargers rank second in the National Football League in sacks per pass attempt, bringing QBs down at a 13.25 percent clip. Rivers has been sacked only four times in three games and also has a quick release, so Philadelphia's front four may have a tough time getting to him. The Eagles most likely won't be that run-heavy in this one, but the balance could help them down the road.
