Dolphins-Chargers flexed into Sunday Night Football

Joe Camporeale-USA TODAY Sports The Bolts will play in primetime for the third time in the past four weeks. Is anyone else feeling a sense of deja vu?

The game will replace the previously scheduled matchup between the Chiefs and Broncos. With the Broncos being one of the biggest disappointments of the 2022 season, it seems like the league couldn’t pass up pitting two of the best young quarterbacks against each...

Chargers Week 12 Rookie Report: Salyer, Woods post rookie blemishes against the Cardinals

Michael Chow-USA TODAY Sports Here’s where the Chargers rookies stand after a week 12 win over the Cardinals Sunday’s game against the Cardinals started out fairly rough for the two rookies on the Chargers offensive line. By the end of the day, Zion Johnson and Jamaree Salyer had combined to allow seven pressures while Salyer let up two sacks, including one on the first drive of the game. Ultimately, the Bolts got the win, which is all that matters in the end. But with a matchup against Maxx Crosby and the Raiders next week, the Chargers front five need to get all...

Chargers Power Rankings Roundup: Season-saving win over Cardinals keep Bolts alive for final stretch

Joe Rondone/The Republic / USA TODAY NETWORK Some publications gave the Bolts a nice bump after getting back in the win column. The Chargers chances at making this year’s postseason was boosted when they walked out of Arizona with a walk-off victory in the waning seconds. Had they not managed to pull it out in the end, they could have almost surely kissed this year’s playoffs goodbye. At 6-5, they’re right in the thick of things with the Jets (7-4), Patriots (6-5), and Bengals (7-4). With that said, let’s go ahead and check out how the Bolts shook out in this...

On Monday afternoon, the NFL posted the results from their first round of voting for the 2023 Pro Bowl showcase.

Chargers Daily Links: Bolts only AFC team above .500 with a negative point differential

Joe Rondone/The Republic / USA TODAY NETWORK Your source for all Chargers and NFL news from around the web. Good morning, Chargers fans! The Chargers may be 6-5 and in contention for a playoff spot. However, here’s a crazy stat: Out of the nine AFC teams with a winning record that also holds a negative point differential. As of week 13, the Chargers own a (-30) point differential, which mainly came to be due to a 28-point loss to the Jaguars in week three and a 14-point loss to the Seahawks in week seven. That’s not a good look for a team looking to push themselves...

Chargers Week 12 ‘Surge or Static?’: DeAndre Carter proving to be more than returner

Photo by Kevork Djansezian/ Both sides of the ball came through for the Chargers when they needed it the most in Arizona. The Chargers needed strong efforts from just about everyone on offense to escape with a 25-24 victory over the Cardinals on Sunday afternoon. Justin Herbert threw three touchdowns to three different players and the game-winning two-point conversion went to yet another individual player. The defense, while looking lost times, truly stepped up when the Chargers needed it the most in the fourth quarter. It was a team win when everything was said and...

Chargers’ best and worst PFF grades vs. the Cardinals

Chargers’ best and worst PFF grades vs. the Cardinals

Joe Camporeale-USA TODAY Sports The grades won’t show, but the Chargers got big-time performances from several players against the Cardinals. For what felt like the majority of the game, both the offense and defense of the Chargers left much on the table. The offense was non-existent in the first quarter before coming alive in the second — like they usually do — and then disappeared once more before putting together the game-winning drive. Defensively, they didn’t force a punt until the fourth quarter. However, they strung three consecutive three-and-outs...

Chargers fans are not very confident in Tom Telesco as GM

Fans also believed Brandon Staley’s seat was getting hot prior to win over Cardinals. With the holiday weekend, we didn’t quite get to posting the results from last week’s SB Nation Reacts poll but I thought you’d all still like to see the results anyway. After two minor increases in confidence following both the win over the Falcons and the loss to the 49ers, participants saw their confidence level drop down to 20 percent following the narrow loss to the Chiefs. For the first of the two additional weekly questions, I asked you all how hot you believe...

Chargers-Cardinals Recap: Justin Herbert leads game-winning drive over feisty Cardinals

Photo by Christian Petersen/ The Bolts got a big game out of their “social media quarterback.” The Chargers bounced back following their two-game losing streak to beat the Cardinals 25-24 thanks to a touchdown in the waning seconds of Sunday’s afternoon matchup in Arizona. With 12 seconds remaining, offensive coordinator Joe Lombardi pulled out the team’s “money” play — a fake run sprint out to the right where Justin Herbert hit Austin Ekeler in stride before reaching the ball inside the pylon. Instead of playing for the tie, Staley chose to go for a...
