Chargers: at age 34, Freeney is still effective - Michael Burland
A healthy Freeney is hoping to change that for San Diego and currently has an overall grade of +10.6 and a pass rush grade of +7.9. Through the first quarter of the season, Freeney sits atop our Pass Rushing Productivity list for 3-4 outside linebackers with 22 total pressures (sacks, hits, hurries).

"This is Something You Dream Of" - Chris Watt
It’s been a good start to the regular season because the whole team is on the same page with one another.  The offense and defense are both going out there and getting the job done.  The first month of my NFL career has gone really well.  I’m learning a lot, like how to prepare for game days and the proper way to get your body ready with nutrition and rest during the week to perform on Sundays.

Chargers vs. Jets preview - Eric Williams & Rich Cimini
For the most part, the Jets have always been strong against the run under Ryan. Their front three is exceptional -- Muhammad Wilkerson, Sheldon Richardson and Damon Harrison. They have run-stuffing linebackers who like to play downhill, namely David Harris. Demario Davis is more of a run-and-hit linebacker, capable of making plays on the edge. The scheme is a factor, too. Ryan plays multiple fronts, mixing 3-4 and 4-3 looks and confusing opponents. He also likes to play an eight-man box, using safety Dawan Landry in run support. Since the start of 2013, the Jets have limited ball carriers to a league-best 3.29 yards per attempt. If this were the 1980s, and not a pass-happy league, the Jets would be truly dominant.
