Los Angeles Chargers Daily Links: Chargers Are Fighting for Their Playoff Lives

Your daily dose of Chargers news & notes from around the web.

NFL: Los Angeles Chargers at Denver Broncos Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

Keys to the Game: Redskins vs. Chargers - Ricky Henne
“He’s one of the best route-runners in football. Has excellent hands. Everything he does has some deception to it. For a guy who may not run a 4.25 40, he is very fast. He plays fast, and all his routes look the same but they’re different. He and Philip (Rivers) have a great rapport, and you can see that.”

Chargers WR Mike Williams: ‘Kind of hard’ to get ball from Rivers - Will Reeve Jr
“I got a good week of practice in, I got back in the groove,” Williams said. “I’m just focused on finishing the season, just continue to give it my all, make the playoffs and have fun in those games.”

Why is Jatavis Brown playing a reduced role on the Chargers defense? - Eric Williams
But head coach Anthony Lynn -- who let Rivers break down the team huddle after practice on Friday, a tradition established this season for all players on their birthday -- had another idea. “What do I get him? Hopefully, he helps us get a win this week,” Lynn said, laughing. “I’m asking.”

Electric RB Austin Ekeler adds fuel to Chargers' pass game - Eric Williams
“Stuff in college that I used to do does not work anymore. So it’s kind of a new learning process this first year, learning what I need to do, what works and what doesn’t work.”

Draft Notes: Mayfield, Rosen, Cards, Nelson - Sam Robinson
Daniel Jeremiah of polled five NFL execs regarding Mayfield’s best destination and didn’t get one definitive answer. While some quarterback-needy teams came up, two decision-makers mentioned the Saints and Chargers as Mayfield fits. Both suggest multiyear apprenticeships behind Brees and Philip Rivers. However, a source told Matt Miller of Bleacher Report Rivers’ resurgence has “basically shut down” the prospect of the Bolts making a quarterback-of-the-future pick in the upcoming first round. Rivers turned 36 on Friday.
