chargers vs. buffalo bills: how they match up


chargers (3-6) vs. buffalo bills (5-4)when chargers have the ballthe big question all week has centered on chargers quarterback philip rivers, who was officially cleared to play late friday afternoon after being in the league’s concussion protocol since monday. the team’s offense already had been sputtering with rivers’ playing, and a switch to backup kellen clemens probably would not have been the adrenaline shot this group needs. the best chance for this offense to find a rhythm is with rivers — who hasn’t missed a start since taking over as the starter in 2006. keeping him on the field is a big boost. he’s the player most equipped to get the ball into the hands of the offense’s best players — including tight end hunter henry, whom the offense has unforgivably forgotten. rivers will face

chargers pick off peterman 5 times in 54-24 win over bills

chargers' keenan allen dedicates big day to grandfather


chief would have been proud. of that, keenan allen was certain.the chargers receiver leaned back against a wall outside the stubhub center locker room and smiled as he thought about how much his grandfather, billy ransom — nicknamed “chief” because of his native american bloodlines — would have enjoyed sunday’s game.ransom, allen’s maternal grandfather, died saturday in greensboro, n.c., at age 80. about 15 minutes before sunday’s kickoff, before allen would catch 12 passes for 159 yards and two touchdowns in the chargers’ 54-24 blowout of the buffalo bills, allen honored his grandfather on social media.“this is for chief!” allen wrote on his twitter account. “rip chief!”as a kid, allen spent hours with ransom watching nascar racing and football on television, and ransom especially liked t






nfl juggles tv lineup so rams and chargers won’t clash in l.a.


with two teams in los angeles, the nfl has had to get creative to provide the nation’s second-largest market with the best tv experience it can.the next two sundays, weeks 10 and 11, will feature “double-doubleheaders” in the l.a. market, with morning and afternoon games on both cbs and fox. that was also the case in weeks 4 and 5.the rams and chargers will play on the same network the next two weeks. sunday, it’s cbs, with chargers at jacksonville in the morning, and houston at rams in the afternoon. fox will have both games the following sunday, with rams at minnesota in the morning, and buffalo at chargers in the afternoon.this is where the nfl had to do some gymnastics, because it would be a problem if, say, the chargers went into overtime on sunday, and the l.a. audience couldn’t see

what we learned in the chargers' 21-0 win against the denver broncos


here’s what we learned from the chargers' 21-0 win sunday against the denver broncos:1. we had it all wrong.the big reasons for optimism with the chargers this offseason tended to do with their offense, where the team appeared to be absolutely loaded.there was an embarrassment of riches at wide receiver, a workhorse running back, an elite tight end and a future hall of famer in philip rivers at quarterback. but through seven games — and in particular the last three — we were focused on the wrong side of the football.as we near the halfway point of this season, it’s clear the chargers defense, particularly the pass defense, is what could get this team over the hump.joey bosa has been nearly unblockable, melvin ingram is too athletic for almost every offensive lineman he comes into contact w

"i just worry about the direction our team is going and where we're trying to get to."it’s why the bills didn’t hesitate to make a surprising quarterback change wednesday, benching tyrod taylor for rookie nathan peterman, a move that chargers coach anthony lynn called “a little surprising.”a little less surprising? quarterback uncertainty with the chargers — something that skyrocketed when
