Coming off of a huge 30-21 home victory over Seattle last Sunday before a sellout crowd, the Chargers are looking to bottle that emotion and use it again this Sunday in western New York against the 2-0 Bills.
As has been the case for much of his career in San Diego, the Fresno State product has had some glorious moments, but also either fumbled in key situations or failed to bounce back up after a tough hit or a plant of one of his legs during a rush.
While hardly marked for the NFL’s basement before the season started, the Bills certainly were and are not a trendy pick to win the AFC in 2014.
If you had to rate San Diego’s 30-21 win Sunday at home over Seattle on an importance scale of 1 to 10, give it an 11.
With this past Monday’s disappointing 18-17 loss at Arizona in the rearview mirror, the San Diego Chargers hope their home opener provides them with win number one of the season.
When you look at the roster and watch the San Diego Chargers play, you soon come to realize that there is a fair amount of talent on that squad.
The defending Super Bowl champions looked in 2013 form when they took apart the Packers last week, something many around the NFL (especially the San Francisco 49ers can’t be happy about).
As the San Diego Chargers get set to tackle the 2014 season in Glendale, Arizona next Monday evening versus the Cardinals, the squad finalized its preseason cuts and named players to the practice squad within the last few days.
If before the 2013 season you would tell Bolt fans that Cal rookie Keenan Allen would become the “go-to” guy for much of last season, many may have scratched their head a time or two. When all was said and done last season, Allen emerged not only as the Chargers’ top threat, but one of the top wide receiver stories around the NFL.
With the post-season in front of them now, the San Diego Chargers are hoping to stick around for a while as the AFC playoffs kick off this coming weekend.
