Best supporting casts in the NFL - Eric Eager & George Chahrour (video)
PFF’s George Chahrouri and Eric Eager break down the best supporting casts in the NFL. Eric and George discuss what each supporting cast brings to the table and which group they believe stands above the rest.

The NFL's secret superstars on defense - Neil Hornsby
Playing almost exclusively in the slot, King has started this preseason even better than he finished last year, giving up no receptions on three targets while breaking up two.

ReFocused, NFL Preseason Week 3: New Orleans Saints 36, Los Angeles Chargers 7 - PFF Analysis Team
The Chargers’ first-team offense was dominant running the ball during the first couple of drives. The offensive line was getting consistent push on the Saints’ defensive front, including a couple of notably impressive blocks from tackle Russell Okung. Running back Austin Ekeler ran for 50 yards on six attempts thanks to the fantastic run-blocking and showed some explosive bursts through those holes.

Anthony Lynn Encouraged by Starters' Performance vs. Saints - Ricky Henne
Anthony Lynn recognized how odd it felt to be so encouraged after a 36-7 loss. However, the head coach couldn’t help it based on the way his team played in the first half of the third preseason game against the New Orleans Saints.

NFL execs pick what all 32 teams should be worried about in 2018 - Mike Sando (insider)
"They are the team I am most excited to watch this year. This might be their chance. This might be their year. I just wonder if [Philip] Rivers can keep the interceptions in check, or will his gunslinger self catch up to him? And then you wonder if ownership can create a championship atmosphere playing in that stadium where the offense had to use the silent count at home."

Chargers roster predictions: Detrez Newsome in, Justin Jackson out - Travis Wakeman
Both running backs put up massive college numbers, but they did so while almost no one noticed. Ekeler came from Western State University in Colorado after other colleges didn’t see him as a running back. Newsome came from Western Carolina where he was the school’s all-time leader in all-purpose yards and touchdowns scored. Like Ekeler’s air guitar, Newsome also has a pretty sweet touchdown celebration with his cartwheel backflip.
