After a clutch 61-yard field goal from Jake Elliott secured a home win against the New York Giants, the Philadelphia Eagles are off to California to face an AFC West worst Los Angeles Chargers (0-3). He's posted a sack in each game this season, and had a career-high three last week against the Kansas City Chiefs. Gordon and Barksdale are key players for the Chargers' offense but are expected to be ready to play on Sunday.

Last week Philip Rivers threw three interceptions and probably should have had a couple more picked off.

This year, you won't be seeing quite as much pink on the field, but we're still going to begin finding out which teams are for real, and which ones are going to fade into the background as the season rolls on. The Chargers pass rush should be a factor again - Philadelphia has allowed 11 sacks.

"I played in a soccer stadium for five straight years in college, so I'm used to it", Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz said.

Eagles running backs: They came into the season with a strong three-man running back rotation with Darren Sproles, LeGarrette Blount and Wendell Smallwood. His main talking point has been that one win should lead to another and another, as long as the Chargers find that first one soon. And surely Reich used his intimate knowledge of the Chargers' offense and Rivers to help in the team's preparation this week.

That being said, there is a ton of pressure on new head coach Anthony Lynn and veteran quarterback Philip Rivers this weekend.

Philadelphia was supposed to be a good team this season, but they may be a year ahead of where they should be. The games were played at Toyota Stadium in Frisco, Texas, an 18,000-seat venue that is home to MLS's FC Dallas.

It ran on NBC, ABC, in syndication, and in a nighttime version, finally being revived in 2009 with Wayne Brady as host. In the early 1960s, he was developing game shows and joined forces with TV veteran Stefan Hatos.

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

"It's going to be fun to see him, and it's going to be exciting and fun to play against him". 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.

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

When you consider that the Chargers still have the likes of Kansas City, Oakland (twice), Denver, Dallas, and New England still on their schedule, things could get really ugly when all is said and done. Those Giants. The Eagles will have to move the ball on the ground to win this one. The Eagles are off to solid start, but they aren't celebrating.

The Eagles are getting the Chargers at an interesting time.

In week two of the National Football League 2017 season, the Chargers lost yet another close game to the Miami Dolphins, and TV ratings sank to a new low, making history in none other than San Diego.
