Who is the Chargers Biggest Rival?

Who is the Chargers Biggest Rival?

SB Nations NFL FanPulse Survey as you, we have the answers. Ask any Chargers fan who is considered the team’s rival and you could probably whittle down that list to 4 or 5 teams. SB Nation has been conducting a weekly FanPulse Survey and this past week they asked this question. And as you can see, with 54% of the vote, the answer is the Kansas City Chiefs, followed by the Oakland Raiders with 40%. The Denver Broncos and New England Patriots tied with 3%. I am somewhat surprised by these results. I would have that the Raiders would be tops on this list, with the inter-state matchup built...

Chargers injuries will define the remainder of the season

Chargers injuries will define the remainder of the season

Another game, another injury. That’s the narrative of the Los Angeles Chargers season following Sunday’s 23-22 loss to the Denver Broncos. With the long-awaited return of defensive end Joey Bosa, fans headed into Sunday’s game with the hopes that Los Angeles could continue their winning ways moving forward. Instead, they took another devastating blow on defense for the rest of the season. Defensive tackle Corey Liuget suffered a season-ending knee injury Sunday. Chargers coach Anthony Lynn confirmed the news following the game. Liuget’s season was quite productive heading down...

Keenan Allen on the Broncos: “They suck.”

Keenan Allen on the Broncos: “They suck.”

Following the Los Angeles Chargers’ divisional loss to the Denver Broncos, wide receiver Keenan Allen was asked if he felt the Broncos played well. He said, per ESPN’s Eric Williams via Twitter, “No, I don’t think they played well at all. We dominated the game. Turnovers, we gave them some points and that’s what happened. They suck.” Now, it’s not terribly uncommon for a player to focus on how his team lost the game rather than how their opponent won it. That sort of take is mildly frowned upon, but it’s normal enough. Allen’s insistence that the Chargers “dominated the...

Chargers DT Corey Liuget out for the season

Chargers DT Corey Liuget out for the season

Because that game wasn’t bad enough already. After going down with what looked like a painful knee injury during the second quarter, Corey Liuget was somewhat forgotten about as the game played out in typical Chargers fashion, with the Chargers managing to beat all the odds in losing to the Denver Broncos, 23-22. The only thing more quintessentially Chargers than blowing a game like that is to have a season ending injury - and don’t worry, because there’s some of that, too!

Chargers-Broncos final score: Los Angeles Chargers lose to the Denver Broncos 23-22

Chargers-Broncos final score: Los Angeles Chargers lose to the Denver Broncos 23-22

The Denver Broncos started the game with the ball after receiving hte opening kickoff. Case Keenum continued to look like Case Keenum with incompletions on his first two passes followed by a pass short of the sticks on 3rd down. In spite of a defensive penalty on the drive, the defense forced a three-and-out and a punt. Philip Rivers and the Chargers offense took over on their own 20-yard line. It looked like they might go three-and-out themselves, but instead Rivers found Keenan Allen open downfield for a 27-yard gain on 3rd down despite Bradley Chubb hitting him nearly as he released the...

Chargers DT Corey Liuget carted off field with knee injury

Chargers DT Corey Liuget carted off field with knee injury

Los Angeles Chargers interior defensive lineman Corey Liuget has suffered an injury to his right knee. He stayed down on the field following a play earlier and was in visible pain as he was attended to by the training staff. Eventually, he got back to his feet and proceeded gingerly off the field. Once on the sideline, Liuget was taken via cart to the locker room for further evaluation. He is questionable to return. Without Liuget, the defensive line is particularly thin today as rookie defensive lineman Justin Jones was inactive for today’s game. Hopefully, the offense (which just scored...

Los Angeles Chargers vs. Denver Broncos open thread

The Los Angeles Chargers (7-2) play host to their division rivals the Denver Broncos (3-6) today as they look to keep pace in their run toward the playoffs. Superstar defensive end Joey Bosa is all set to make his season debut this afternoon and should be a needed boost to a defense that will be without Trevor Williams and Justin Jones. On the offensive side of the ball, Philip Rivers and the Chargers offense will be getting their stiffest test of the year as they take on one of the NFL’s truly elite defenses led by pass rush extraordinaire Von Miller. This is a game the home team...

NFL Picks: The Degenerate Gambler Goes Low

NFL Picks: The Degenerate Gambler Goes Low

Each week our anti-hero blows $100 on the game. What picks did he feel were the best today? This has been a week of many changing lines for the Chargers Vs. Broncos matchup. One of the biggest mysteries was whether or not the Chargers’ standout star Joey Bosa would actually see the field, and recent updates have confirmed that he’ll suit up. That said, it would be premature to guarantee that Bosa makes in impact on the game (though, if there was a prop bet on him, the Degenerate Gambler would surely take a look!). Each week, the Degenerate Gambler lives up to his name is bets $100 on...

Joey Bosa set to return vs. Broncos

Los Angeles Chargers superstar defensive end Joey Bosa is expected to return from the injury that has kept him out all season against division rivals the Denver Broncos. Ian Rapoport reports via Twitter: At long last, #Chargers star DE Joey Bosa should be back on a football field. Sources say Bosa is expected to play against the #Broncos Sunday — for the first time all season. They’ll judge his snaps by how he feels, as Bosa is recovering from bone bruise in his foot.— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) November 18, 2018 The Chargers defensive is a fringe top-10 defense already and the...

Five Questions with Mile High Report

Five Questions with Mile High Report

Ahead of Sunday’s showdown with the Denver Broncos, I chat to Casey Barrett of Mile High Report about what to expect from this Denver team. 1: The Broncos started 2-0 (albeit with two close wins) and looked like having every chance of competing for a postseason birth, but have gone just 1-6 since then. What was happening in the first two games that isn’t happening now, and where has it all gone wrong for the Broncos? Honestly, Denver is just not playing like a great team right now. Great teams capitalize on other team’s mistakes. The Broncos have not done that. The defense forces a...

Three-Down Back: Three things to watch for against the Denver Broncos

Three-Down Back: Three things to watch for against the Denver Broncos

This week the Chargers are back home for the first time in 41 days as they host their divisional rivals, the Denver Broncos, for the first time this season. Winners of six-straight games, the Bolts will hope to extend their streak to seven against the reeling Broncos who have found themselves stumbling through 2018 on their way to a lackluster 3-6 record. QB Case Keenum has not been who the Broncos thought they were getting from the author of the Minneapolis MIracle and with Demaryius Thomas now with the Houston Texans, the Denver offense rests squarely on the backs WR Emmanuel Sanders...

Which linebacker prospects best fit the Chargers defense?

Which linebacker prospects best fit the Chargers defense?

The Los Angeles Chargers took a massive hit this past week with the season-ending loss of linebacker Denzel Perryman. The fourth-year middle linebacker left early during the team’s 20-6 victory over the Oakland Raiders and did not return. Following an MRI scan, the team confirmed that Perryman would miss the remainder of the season following an LCL injury that requires surgery. While the loss of Perryman shouldn’t hurt the Bolts’ chances of making a run at the playoffs, it does cause some concern for the team moving forward. The former second-round pick out of Miami has yet to play a...

BFTB Mailbag: Derwin James or Desmond King for defensive MVP?

Are the chargers WRs overrated?— Who (@gtboltz) November 15, 2018 I’m not surprised to see this question pop up at this point in the season. It’s understandable after following a offseason that was chalk-full of pundits and analysts, alike, staking the claim that the Chargers’ had the best group of wide receivers heading into the 2018 season. However, that claim is losing some footing after three-straight weeks of single-catch performances for Mike Williams prior to last Sunday’s zero-target game versus the Oakland Raiders. After a slow start to the season, Tyrell Williams...
