Raiders @ Rams TNF Staff Picks: Baker Mayfield getting the start?

Photo by Ronald Martinez/ Raiders @ Rams TNF Picks: Baker Mayfield starting? The Las Vegas Raiders have travelled to Los Angeles to take on the Rams to open up week 14 of the 2022 NFL Season. And the big news already is that the word on the street is that newly signed Baker Mayfield might actually be getting the start for the Rams. This would be a pretty crazy event, as Mayfield has had less than a week with the team, however the Rams are desperate at this point and with the Rams currently sitting at 3-9 in last place in the NFC West, what do they really have to lose?...

Chargers Injury Report: Callahan downgraded to DNP, Williams upgraded to full on Thursday

Chargers Injury Report: Callahan downgraded to DNP, Williams upgraded to full on Thursday

Robert Hanashiro-USA TODAY Sports The Bolts should have their top three receivers available against the Dolphins. For those who thought the Chargers’ time with their top three wideouts against the Chiefs was cut far too short, you won’t have to wait much longer if things continue on this pace. Per the team’s Thursday injury report, Mike Williams was upgraded from a limited participant on Wednesday to a full participant. It’s the first full practice Williams has logged since week 11 prep. As for the other changes on the report, it’s a bit of a balanced group of...

Joe Camporeale-USA TODAY Sports In the battle of 2020 quarterback prospects, which one will ultimately add to their legacy in primetime? It’s finally here. Once fans got the chance to see the 2022 Chargers season schedule, the matchup against Tua Tagovailoa and the Dolphins was most certainly circled and underlined as one of the most anticipated games outside of the divisional matchups. Add in the insane amount of social media debate that’s been transpiring between Justin Herbert truthers and a certain FOX Sports analyst that will remain nameless, this matchup has...

Chargers attempted to claim former Chiefs DT Taylor Stallworth off waivers

Chargers attempted to claim former Chiefs DT Taylor Stallworth off waivers

Mark Konezny-USA TODAY Sports Stallworth has spent time with both the Colts and Saints. On Thursday morning, ESPN NFL insider Field Yates reported that the Chargers were also in on attempting to claim former Chiefs defensive tackle Taylor Stallworth on waivers. Stallworth ultimately was claimed by the Texans who owned a higher priority on the waiver wire. This news shouldn’t come as a surprise as the Chargers are still one of the worst teams at stopping the run and continuing to try and reinforce that group is of the highest priority, especially as they push for a...

Chargers vs. Dolphins Week 14: Nothing will be bigger than Herbert-Tagovailoa in primetime

Chargers vs. Dolphins Week 14: Nothing will be bigger than Herbert-Tagovailoa in primetime

Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports Sunday night becomes a must-win game for the Chargers and their playoff hopes. The Chargers (6-6) and Dolphins (8-4) will face each other on Sunday night for what will be the the third time in the past four weeks that the Bolts will be playing in primetime, specifically on Sunday Night Football. It goes without saying that the quarterback matchup between Justin Herbert and Tua Tagovailoa will not only be the biggest headline in this game, but most likely the entire NFL, as well. Both of these passers from the 2020 draft class have had notable...

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...
