NFL: Jacksonville Jaguars at San Diego Chargers Orlando Ramirez-USA TODAY Sports

A Frank Philip Rivers Talks Postseason Push - Ricky Henne
“It starts really this week,” he said. “This is a key week for us, coming off a bye playing against a hot Jacksonville team who’s also going to be in the thick of both their division race, and the playoff race. This is obviously a big week….We can all see we have an eight game season left. We have this third quarter ahead of us starting in Jacksonville. If we keep trending the right way, we can find ourselves right in the mix as we get to December.”

Chargers offer free dental care for 4th consecutive season - Mark Gunnels
“Since the Chargers are in a new community, we’re trying to build this community where the Chargers can be a part of this, and we can be a part of the Chargers’ community,” said Whitmore, per the Chargers official site. “(We want to) make sure the kids come out and get the care that they need.”

Chargers vs. Jaguars: 5 things to know about their Week 10 game - Will Hernandez
Even though Rivers is 6-1 all-time against Jacksonville with a QBR rating of 120.3 during that span, the Bolts are still 3.5 point underdogs going into Sunday’s meeting.

Word of Muth: Wasted Effort - Ben Muth
That's a pretty football play. Let's start with Hunter Henry (86) at tight end. He feints at the end man on the line of scrimmage (Cassius Marsh, 55) to freeze him and give the right guard (Kenny Wiggins, 79) time to get out there before climbing to a safety and blocking him down the field. Speaking of Wiggins, he does a really nice job of hooking the edge player. He's helped by the fact that the defender is wrong-arming him (ripping through with his outside arm to force a bounce from the running back) but Wiggins pins him inside just long enough for Gordon to get the edge.

Desmond King's tenacity highlights Chargers' rookie class - Eric Williams
Desmond King, CB, fifth round: The Iowa product has been the Chargers’ most productive rookie this season while playing 326 defensive snaps, mostly as the Chargers' slot defender. King has 27 combined tackles, a sack and two pass breakups. "Where he’s come along is he’s a pretty good open-field tackler," Chargers defensive coordinator Gus Bradley said. "And that constantly shows up, too, where he's around the ball and he has his opportunity, and he does a pretty good job. We’ve just got to keep pushing him. He's got a lot to learn in a short period of time." Grade: Above average.
