Open Thread: Baltimore Ravens at San Diego Chargers, 2nd Half

That's about as good of a half of football as I've ever seen from the San Diego Chargers. Playing against what was referred to as "the best team in the AFC" before the game, the Baltimore Ravens, the Chargers' plan of building a big early lead is working to perfection.

San Diego is yet to punt in this game, converting all three of their drives into points. Baltimore had the ball 4 times, resulting in a TD, a missed FG, a punt and then time expiring at the end of the first half. The Chargers hold a 10 point lead, 17-7, at halftime and will receive the kick to start the second half. If they're able to get the lead to 17 points, they'll all but take Ray Rice out of the Ravens' gameplan.

The key to the game has simply been superior talent on the offensive side of the ball for the Chargers, specifically in the passing game. Malcom Floyd, Vincent Jackson and Antonio Gates are getting open consistently and Philip Rivers is putting the ball in their hands. The Ravens, and Joe Flacco, haven't shown anything that says that they can compete in a shootout like this.

Fingers crossed for a few more TDs and zero turnovers in the second half.
