San Diego Chargers
Riding a two-game winning streak, the San Diego Chargers look to avoid getting caught napping this Sunday when winless Jacksonville limps into town at 0-3.
With both Mathews (indefinitely) and Woodhead (out for the season), the Bolts have been busy trying to plug those holes, despite the fact they are 2-1 and could potentially be 6-1 heading into a late October road date (Oct. 23) in Denver.
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.
Diehard fans may want to close their eyes: with an 0-2 start and staring at possible 0-6 start now, the Oakland Raiders will be hard-pressed to avoid two ugly fates in 2014: they could end up worse than the 4-12 record they posted last year, and they could end up as the worst team in the NFL.
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.
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).
The last game of the first week of the NFL season Monday evening brought fans a rematch of the preseason finale. Yes, field goals played a role in this game too.
Following a 9-7 campaign in 2013, the Chargers and their fans are hoping this season brings even more success.
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.
In the preseason finale last Thursday evening in San Diego, the Bolts kicked their way to a 12-9 win over the NFC West Cardinals – yes, the same team they will face come Monday in Glendale.
