Chargers Beat the Eagles 33-30 – Good, Bad, and Ugly
Philip Rivers – 36/47 for 419 yards, three touchdowns and more importantly… No turnovers!
Antonio Gates – The future HOFer had a very productive day with eight receptions for 124 yards
Malcom Floyd – Before leaving the game with a neck injury had five catches for 102 yards
Eddie Royal – With a hat trick today, seven catches for 90 yards and a three touchdowns. Royal Flush!
Pass rush – Jarius Wynn had a sack early, but after that the pass rush was non-existent. I could try to argue they were focused on containing Vick (six carries, 23 yards, TD), but I would fail. The lack of pass rush is killing the secondary and that needs to be fixed before the week 4 game against the Cowboys.
Secondary – For a second straight week the secondary got torched by a not so stellar QB. 23/36 for 428 yards and two TDs. DeSean Jackson had nine catches for 193 yards, which could have easily been 11 catches for 250 if Vick was more accurate.
Turnovers – Mathews and Gates with fumbles.
Malcom Floyd – Floyd whom left the game on a stretcher after suffering a neck injury. Michael Gehlken tweets:
