Game Thread: Atlanta Falcons at San Diego Chargers, 1st Half

Loading Scores

Week 3 in what could either be the season that changes the careers of A.J. Smith and Norv Turner, or the season that ends their careers in San Diego. There's plenty of time for those guys, and this team, to recover if they lost this game, but if the San Diego Chargers can defeat the Atlanta Falcons it will get most of the city of San Diego to finally buy back into believing in this team as a championship contender.

How good are the Falcons? We asked Shaun Phillips:

There you have it. Shaun agrees with me that the Falcons might just be the best team in the NFC, and is looking forward to facing a team that good. Shaun, and the rest of the defense, have looked outstanding so far this season. They'll need to have another good game, and the offense will need to protect the ball, if the Bolts are going to win this one.

Reminder: Do not talk about illegal streams of NFL football games in the comments.
