Los Angeles Chargers Daily Links: How important is Melvin Ingram to the defense?

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

NFL: Baltimore Ravens at Los Angeles Chargers Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

5 plays from the Ravens/Chargers: Bolts punched in the mouth - Kyle Posey
On the final play, it’s the offensive line and their inability to make plays in space. Whether it’s over running or getting thrown out of the way. It’s been a problem most of the second half of the season and the Ravens highlighted that. I go over each of these in detail. See the video below.

Melvin Ingram the consistent anchor for Chargers' defense - Eric Williams
"He's played very well," Chargers defensive coordinator Gus Bradley said. "I know as a coaching staff we've asked our players to do some different things, different techniques maybe than they have in the past.

NFL MVP Poll - Who our experts pick heading into Week 17 - Dan Graziano
Rivers got one second-place vote and seven third-place votes. He's top-five in QBR, yards per attempt and passer rating, and he ranks seventh with 31 touchdown passes against just 10 interceptions. His Chargers are 11-3, and if they win this week and the Chiefs lose, they'll snatch that top AFC seed away from Mahomes & Co. at the finish line. Comeback victories in Pittsburgh and Kansas City in recent weeks have stamped this Chargers team as a dangerous Super Bowl contender, and the veteran QB is leading the way with maybe the deepest team he has ever had.

NFL evaluators make picks on Week 17's best games - Mike Sando (insider)
"There is too much turmoil in Denver and they do not have enough on offense," one of the insiders said.

How the Chargers Can Prepare for the Playoffs This Week - Tyler Gallagher
Against the Ravens, Melvin Gordon looked effective, but he came limping off the field after a couple of carries. If he is not fully healthy by this weekend, why not go with Justin Jackson and Detrez Newsome? The game against the Pittsburgh Steelers showed how effective that duo can be, so the Chargers should rely on them if Gordon is not 100 percent.

Ravens bully Chargers: The good, the bad and the hopeful - Dennis J. Hassell
On their first passing play, Rivers and Keenan Allen lost their sh*t with the refs — though Philip would probably say he lost his “shoot”. The proof is that on the very next play, Allen was still futilely yapping at the ref, and was not set. Penalty. This is called losing focus, and it is talked about incessantly by the coaching staff and players. Coach Lynn, please tell Rivers that passion is like fire: it has a good side and a bad side. Keep your eyes on the prize, captain. And please reflect that that first quarter with your ranting was the Chargers’ worst.
