Liuget leads resurgent Bolts' defense - Eric Williams
"When he gets hot, makes plays early and gets rolling, he’s as good as anybody in the league," Johnson said about Liuget. "If he keeps playing at that level, people are going to recognize him. He is a big-time talent. And as he continues to progress, get older, better and more consistent, everybody’s going to know his name."

Observation Deck: San Diego Chargers - Eric Williams
Inside linebacker Kavell Conner had some big hits playing in place of Manti Te'o, who sat out due to a foot injury. Conner finished with a combined seven tackles, leading the Chargers.

2014 KUBIAK vs. ADP: The Underrated - Vince Verhei
Here is the rare occasion where the public is giving up on a player too quickly. From 2006 to 2011, Rivers was a top-ten fantasy quarterback five times in six years. He fell to 21st place in 2012, then rebounded to fifth last year. So which was the fluke season, 2012 or 2013?

Analyzing the First Team Defense - Hayley Elwood
"The whole entire defense came ready to play," McCoy said.  "We got embarrassed as a defense last week and we challenged them.  This is the type of defense we want to be.  Defensively, the way they got after the quarterback and the way they played the run is what we’ve got to do."

Analyzing the First Team Offense - Hayley Elwood
Even though it’s only the preseason, when playing against opposing first-team defenses, Rivers looks to be capitalizing on last season’s career-year performance.  He looked crisp working through Offensive Coordinator Frank Reich’s no huddle, shotgun offense for most of his time on the field going 9-for-10 for 85-yards and one touchdown.
