Eagles fans take over StubHub center, boo Chargers pre-game

For the Eagles, they're hoping to solidify their position as the former, while proving their opponent on Sunday, the 0-3 San Diego Chargers of Los Angeles, are the latter.

Philadelphia has played well so far this season, with the team's lone loss coming on the road to Kansas City, which just beat Los Angeles 24-10 last week. The offense moved the ball effectively at times, with Melvin Gordon racking up 79 yards rushing and a touchdown, but they were hampered by three costly Philip Rivers interceptions. At home, with a chip on their shoulder, the Giants may be able to handle the Chargers easily.

The Eagles will be without some key players again on defense, including Fletcher Cox, and that's going to make Jim Schwartz's job quite hard against Philip Rivers and the Chargers offense.

Rivers didn't improve as the game went on. The Chargers pass rush should be a factor again - Philadelphia has allowed 11 sacks. "There's not many quarterbacks out there that compete quite like he does".

The Eagles announced on Friday morning that cornerback Ronald Darby, cornerback Corey Graham and safety Jaylen Watkins are out for Sunday's game versus the Chargers.

This could (finally) be the week the Chargers' offense lives up to the considerable hype it amassed in the offseason. "I should believe that if they keep holding teams to 20, right in there, then we're going to win a bunch of games".

The Chargers worked on techniques and fundamentals in their three practices leading up to Sunday's game, including emphasizing eliminating penalties on special teams, Lynn said.

Not much time to celebrate, though, as now Philly must make their first west coast trip of the 2017 season with a visit to the new Los Angeles Chargers.

Quarterback Carson Wentz was sacked on the very first play of the game by Giants' Oliver Vernon. After a successful first year back in L.A., the Rams are on pace for the biggest year-to-year drop in attendance of any National Football League team in the last 25 years, according to FiveThirtyEight's Daniel Levitt. It may be tough to accomplish though; the Chargers have only allowed four sacks all season, which is one of the best ranks in the league. Good hire, there, Chargers.

Have thoughts on how the Chargers and Eagles are performing? Though he figures to get more attention than Antonio Gates, Henry has gotten zero targets in two games this season so far, which doesn't look good for his prospects this week. With less than four minutes to go, the tandem of Rivers and Royal would thump the Eagles for a third time on the afternoon, this time on a 15-yard touchdown connection to put the Chargers in front 30-27.

- Eagles receivers have six drops in the first three games, which is pretty much the same pace as past year, when they finished with 31.
