NFL Week 13: Updated Draft order and Chargers' targets

With week 12 in the books, and some exciting games in the race for the #1 overall pick, let's look at the current draft order. As of last week, the Chargers held the #1 overall pick for the 2016 NFL Draft. The Chargers have now dropped down to the #4 overall pick because Philip Rivers just refuses to be down with the tank. With the win, the Chargers improved to 3-8, tying them with the Cowboys and 49ers. As we discussed a few weeks ago, strength of schedule (SOS) is the 1st tie breaker after overall record, which is why the Chargers now sit at 4. The Titans NEARLY pulled off an upset over...

Chargers-Jaguars Final Score: San Diego Chargers end losing streak with 31-25 road win

After six consecutive losses, the San Diego Chargers finally played a good game and ended up with a lopsided road win over the Jaguars in Jacksonville. Ugh. Just when I was ready to get down with the tank, and root for the San Diego Chargers to lose the rest of their games to solidify the #1 overall pick in the 2016 NFL Draft, Mike McCoy and his coaching staff finally finds a gameplan that works. Either that, or the Jacksonville Jaguars are really bad. That might actually be the likeliest option, because it is not as if the Chargers didn't make a lot of foolish mistakes. For instance,...

Jaguars vs. Chargers final score: 5 things we learned in 31-25 loss

The Jaguars lost 31-25 to the Chargers today at EverBank Field. But what did we learn about this team going forward? The Jacksonville Jaguars lost to the San Diego Chargers by a score of 31-25 in a Week 12 matchup at EverBank Field. It was there for the taking too... The Chargers had a mixed bag of backups along the offensive line because of injury, Philip Rivers' best wide receiver in Keenan Allen was out, and their run defense was among the worst in the league. They were on a cross-country trip and playing an early game. Their head coach, Mike McCoy, is on his way out in a matter of...

2016 NFL Draft Order: Titans can't win for losing

I am not sure what happened here. The Titans lost on Thursday. That was supposed to give them the inside track at the #1 overall pick. However, the Titans actually moved down to the #3 pick after this weekend's events in the NFL. How in the world are the Chargers 2-8? Remember this offseason when we had the debate about trading the #2 pick to the Chargers for Philip Rivers? Gramsey convinced me to be for the idea. What a disaster that would have been. We would still probably have a similar record. Ken Whisenhunt would probably still be the coach. The future would be dark, but our...

Tempers flare between Gates, Rivers

Some of the Chargers looked like they didn’t much care in the course of a sixth straight loss. Not so Philip Rivers and Antonio Gates, who had a angry flare-up between them during the game.

Chiefs-Chargers final score: KC defense outscores Philip Rivers and San Diego, 33-3

The Kansas City Chiefs beat the San Diego Chargers, 33-3, to move to 5-5 on the season. This is their fourth straight victory after starting the season 1-5. They now are a legitimate part of the AFC playoff picture with a big game against the Buffalo Bills coming next week. The Chiefs lost Charcandrick West and De'Anthony Thomas in the game but the defense played well enough that it didn't matter. The Chiefs went on the road in Denver and San Diego blew them both out. This team is for real. Final stats are here. What we learned... Poe Heavy scores a touchdown The Chiefs Poe Heavy package...

Chiefs LB Justin Houston picked off a Philip Rivers screen pass and ran it back for a touchdown

Things are going well for the Kansas City Chiefs thanks to Justin Houston. Chargers QB Philip Rivers was throwing a screen pass against the Chiefs in the second half when Houston stepped in front of the pass and took it back for a touchdown. This to go along with Tamba Hali's two sacks. It's a good day for the Chiefs defense. LOL Philip Rivers. https://t.co/jdKIR8fwYr — Jimmy Traina (@JimmyTraina) November 22, 2015

Jeremy Maclin took a huge hit and there was no flag

UPDATE: Maclin returned to the game and is apparently fine. Chiefs WR Jeremy Maclin ran a slant and was lit up hard by a Chargers defender who seemed to go straight to the head of Maclin. The video seemed to show to me that the Chargers defender led with his helmet and hit Maclin in the helmet, which should be a penalty. There was no flag. The CBS announcers couldn't believe there was no flag on there for what looked like an illegal hit. Hate to see shots like this hit on Jeremy Maclin. https://t.co/OJLOcbWstY — Matt Conner (@MattConnerAP) November 22, 2015 Fox's Mike Pereira thought...

De'Anthony Thomas has concussion, won't return to Chiefs-Chargers game

De'Anthony Thomas will not be returning to the Kansas City Chiefs game today as he has a concussion. De'Anthony Thomas does have concussion and will not return today — Adam Teicher (@adamteicher) November 22, 2015 DAT took a handoff on the Chiefs first drive and was hit hard by two Chargers players. The ref seemed to signal to the bench to have DAT checked out because he was hit hard. He went to the locker room and word later came out that he had been concussed. Jeremy Maclin took over the Chiefs punt return duties while Chris Conley was in on the first kick return. Knile Davis is...

NFL picks Week 11: Chiefs-Chargers predictions are in

The Chiefs-Chargers picks are in. The Chiefs are a 3-point favorite. Here's who the Arrowhead Pride staff is picking. Make your own prediction at the bottom. Joel Thorman: Chiefs 27 Chargers 24 Two things I believe: 1.) This game will be close because it seems like most of these Chiefs-Chargers games are and 2.) The Chiefs are the better team. Philip Rivers taking advantage of the Chiefs secondary concerns me but Chiefs win. Matt Conner: Chiefs 17 Chargers 21 I don't like this game, for some reason. Division rival, but this week doesn't feel like it. Raiders and Broncos games never have a...
