  • Ben Higgins: NFL could put Chargers back in San Diego if they wanted

With NFL commissioner Roger Goodell in attendance for the Los Angeles Chargers third home game of the season, the team put up a good fight against the Philadelphia Eagles but fell short 26-24 in a shootout.

It didn't feel like a road game.

The Chargers did not melt down offensively, like they did a week ago against Kansas City.

Philadelphia has now won three out of four games despite only having one home game. Granted, Stockton made about four thousand mistakes during the game so he might have actually gotten confused, but either way, the atmosphere that far from home was remarkable.

The Eagles got the ball with a little over six minutes left in the contest.

It never came. The Chargers went scoreless in the second half.

Though most Eagles road game attract green-clad fans, Eagles blockers said the road support was extraordinary by franchise standards.

Elliott shined on Sunday, leading Philadelphia to a 26-24 victory over the Los Angeles Chargers.

The only team to ever make the playoffs after starting 0-4 was the 1992 San Diego Chargers.

While Philadelphia's Carson Wentz is certainly not the best quarterback in the National Football League, he has shown in only his second year that he is gaining more and more confidence with each week.

After a slow start, Carson sure came up big in Carson. Rivers finished 22/38 for 347 yards and two touchdowns. In doing so, the Bolts dropped their ninth straight game dating back to last season, falling to 0-4 for the 2017 campaign.

Last week's hero Jake Elliott was a ideal 4-for-4 on field goals and 2-for-2 on extra points, and despite the defense giving up a combined 38 points in the fourth quarter the last two weeks, the Eagles didn't need any last-second heroics this week.

So what gives? Were the Birds missing tackles and failing to break off blocks because they were exhausted?

Carson Wentz passed for 242 yards, LeGarrette Blount rushed for 136 and the Eagles jumped to a big early lead before hanging on to beat the winless Chargers.

Tom Petty's Super Bowl XLII Haltime Show was perfect
I believe I first knew about Tom Petty with his creepy Alice in Wonderland music video for " Don't Come Around Here No More ". As initial reports of Petty's removal from life support surfaced, there was an outpouring of grief from the music world.

They played their first game against each other on October 6, 1974.

Wendell Smallwood had a total of 2 yards on two carries in that game when Sproles went down.

"(The running game) definitely helps the overall execution of the offense", Pederson said Sunday. "At the same time, I don't think it's - yeah, I better not".

As Coach Lynn stated after the game: "You might say we're the same old Chargers, but right now we are".

Lynn said he hopes the dispute over standing for the national anthem - which began last season with then-San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick in a protest of shootings of blacks by police officers - "does something positive, do something that will effect change". What should scare the Eagles is how many pass yards and touchdowns they surrendered in the fourth quarter.

The Philadelphia Eagles (3-1) have snapped another dreaded losing streak this regular season. They do not have the explosive type of players that the Chiefs have on offense, but as their offensive ranking indicates they move the ball on offense and score points. The offense is bailing out the defense.

Mercedes got both drivers back out after their trips into the gravel, but Bottas could only manage fifth, 1.459s adrift of Vettel. The Australian sensed an opportunity on Sunday. "Next thing I knew I was spinning and heading for the wall", he said.
