San Diego Chargers Defeat Philadelphia Eagles, Tie for 1st in AFC West

New, comments

Whew, that was an odd game.  The offense looked great, even the rushing offense, but the defense played soft all game.  It was almost a copy of the team that went 2-2 to start the season instead of the Chargers squad that has won it's last 4 games.

Either way, the San Diego Chargers coaching staff went into this game with a plan to stop the big plays, hold the Eagles to FGs and score TDs with Philip Rivers and LaDainian Tomlinson.  That plan worked, and the Broncos losing to the Redskins was just icing on the cake.  The winner of next week's mega-huge game will not only be alone in 1st, but they'll have a full game lead and the Chargers' next two opponents are the Chiefs and Browns.  This has huge, huge, HUGE potential.

Although I have some clear people in my mind for Bolts & Dolts tomorrow, your input in the comments is more than welcome.  Help to make sure I don't leave anybody out.
