Chargers vs. Dolphins: By The Numbers

Chargers vs. Dolphins: By The Numbers

BILL INGRAM / THE PALM BEACH PSOT / USA TODAY NETWORK Let’s take a look at this matchup on paper. The Dolphins are coming off a 33-17 loss to the 49ers, the latter of which played with a third-string quarterback for the majority of the game. An efficiently-called game by Kyle Shanahan on offense was instrumental in complementing their elite defense, which ultimately was too much for Miami to overcome. This week, however, I don’t think the Dolphins will have to worry about having their opponent put on a similar performance. The Chargers are still hurting and...

Chargers Discussion Thread: What is your favorite piece of Chargers memorabilia you own?

Ken Blaze-USA TODAY Sports Large, small, cheap, or expensive. We’ve all got something that makes us swell with Chargers pride. As sports fan, our love for the team can stretch out and reach into every aspect of our lives. Not only do we want to be draped in powder blue and gold while cheering on the team, but we also want to be surrounded by objects and possessions that also don the bolt and color scheme. Sometimes that’s your favorite mug, a set of monogramed towels, or even that swanky mini fridge you convinced your significant other you desperately “needed”...

Chargers Week 13 ‘Surge or Static?’: Allen scores again, Callahan takes one back

Chargers Week 13 ‘Surge or Static?’: Allen scores again, Callahan takes one back

Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports The team’s WR1 hasn’t looked like his vintage self, but he’s still getting into the end zone. The Chargers started their game against the Raiders by building a 10-point lead. But just as fast as they built it, it was swiftly taken away thanks to Josh Jacobs running rampant through the Bolts’ front seven. The second half got out of hand soon after it began and it was mainly all downhill from there. The Chargers were able to cut the 14-point lead in half late in the fourth quarter, but that’s as close as they got before time ran...

Chargers Power Rankings Roundup: Bolts hanging on to middling rank after loss to Raiders

Stephen R. Sylvanie-USA TODAY Sports The latest loss makes the Miami game a must-win. At 6-5 heading into week 13, the Chargers needed to take advantage of the softer games against the Cardinals and Raiders. They managed to win one of the two which ultimately could seal their playoff fate with the Dolphins and Titans up next in back-to-back weeks. They’re going to need to win at least one of those to avoid needing to rattle off three or more victories to end the season. As of now, the Chargers are 6-6 and would have to finish 4-1 to improve on their record from a...

Chargers earn ‘C-’ in 27-20 loss to Raiders

Stephen R. Sylvanie-USA TODAY Sports Blowing a double-digit lead is an easy way to earn a blemish on the weekly report card The Chargers started strong against the Raiders on Sunday afternoon with a swarming defense that scored the team’s first touchdown of the game via a pick-six by cornerback Bryce Callahan. Kicker Cameron Dicker tacked on a field goal early in the second quarter to give them a 10-0 lead but the Raiders came storming back with a 20-yard rushing score from Josh Jacobs and a long field goal by Daniel Carlson.

Chargers’ best and worst PFF grades vs. the Raiders

Stephen R. Sylvanie-USA TODAY Sports The defense couldn’t quite outplay their own laundry list of injuries in Las Vegas. The Chargers offense scored just one touchdown against the Raiders on Sunday, marking the fourth such game of the season. While that obviously isn’t a great showing, it was still the offensive side of the ball that received the better grades as opposed to the defense which allowed 27 points and what seemed like a million yards of combined offense between wide receiver Davante Adams and running back Josh Jacobs. Las Vegas’ pass rush started hot...

Photo by Chris Unger/ Your source for all Chargers and NFL news from around the web. Good morning, Chargers fans! We all knew yesterday’s game against the Raiders wasn’t going to be a cake walk. The Chargers offensive line was starting three backups, including a rookie and a second-year undrafted free agent. That allowed the Raiders’ pass rush to tee off from the jump and it made for an uncomfortable pocket experience for Justin Herbert all game long. At 6-6, the team’s chances at the playoffs has surely taken a hit, but they’re certainly not out of the race...

Photo by Steve Marcus/ The Bolts couldn’t get it done through all of the injuries on both sides of the ball. Similar to their week one matchup, this game between the Chargers and the Raiders was another back-and-forth contest with plenty of “wow” plays and even more impressive individual performances. Unfortunately, the two biggest performance came from a pair of Raiders in running back Josh Jacobs (144 yards, touchdown) and wide receiver Davante Adam (177 yards, two touchdowns). Both were simply too much for the Chargers who are still so throttled by injuries on...
