Carolina Panthers (4-9) at San Diego Chargers (5-8)
I picked the Chargers to win at home against the Ravens and Bengals respectively in week 12 and 13 because, among other reasons, they always start playing really well at this point in the season, even when their season has been lost. Well, they couldn’t quite close the deal in either of those games, though they made it close and probably should have beaten the Ravens, but Ray Rice converted an improbable (and maybe poorly called) 4th and 29. Because of this, I stayed away from them in Pittsburgh last week, even though all the trends said they’d cover. Well, what did they do? They not only covered as 7.5 point dogs, but dominated the game, even leading 27-3 at one point.
Finally, it appears they’ve gone on their late season run and I can say with as much confidence as I can about a team that’s burned me before this season that the Chargers have a good chance to now win out with games against the Panthers, Jets, and Raiders. They sho...

According to USA Today Sports, the San Diego Chargers are so desperate to sell tickets that they used Groupon to help them try to sell out this Sunday’s game against the Panthers. Chargers waded into the land of discounted microdermabrasion treatments and half-priced speedboat tours this week by offering tickets for Sunday’s game on Groupon. For the low price of $68, buyers would...
With Ronnie Brown expected to miss Sunday's game, the Chargers want to get Ryan Mathews heavily involved in the offense. SOURCE: Michael Gehlken, San Diego Union-TribuneFantasy Spin:Gehlken expects Mathews to approach his career-high in touches (28) Sunday against the Panthers. Mathews has been largely disappointing this season, rushing for zero 100-yard games and just one touchdown...
Panthers receiver Brandon LaFell (foot, toe) is questionable for Sunday's game against San Diego. Coach Ron Rivera called it 50-50 when asked about the chance of Lafell playing.Fantasy Spin:Not only does LaFell have a turf toe injury, he's also dealing with a chipped bone in his foot. Louis Murphy will start if LaFell is inactive and caught five balls for 36 yards last week.
Tweet The good news for the San Diego Chargers is they’re in second place in the AFC West. The bad news is a brutal middle-of-the-season stretch, where they went 1-7, has the Chargers at 5-8 and leaves the team with little chance of making the playoffs. It has also contributed to quite a few empty seats [...]
The San Diego Chargers have ruled linebacker Demorrio
Williams out for today’s contest against the Carolina Panthers, while running
back Ronnie Brown is doubtful and wide receiver Eddie Royal is questionable.
Brown didn’t practice all week after suffering a hamstring
injury during last weekend’s victory against the Pittsburgh Steelers. The
backup running back, who’s...
The Carolina Panthers have ruled running back Jonathan
Stewart out for today’s contest against the San Diego Chargers, while wide
receiver Brandon LaFell and linebacker James Anderson are questionable to play.
Stewart has been sidelined since sustaining an ankle injury during
a Nov. 26 contest against the Philadelphia Eagles. The running back missed
practice all week and has...
There was something of a controversy that came about following the Panthers' upset victory over the Falcons last Sunday, when Carolina defensive end Greg Hardy told Falcons players to "get the f**k off our field."
Proving payback is indeed a female dog, it was the same comment quarterback Matt Ryan made after Atlanta's Week 4 win.
Though, as we've come...
The Chargers, who can’t seem to do anything right lately (I’d call them “loveable” but that’s far, far from the truth) resorted to using Groupon on Monday to try to sell out this Sunday’s home game against the Carolina Panthers.
The Groupon was for an end zone seat priced at $68, which included a $20 voucher for use at the concession stands. Per Ticketmaster, the...
Baltimore Ravens running back Ray is dealing with a sore hip, but it's not expected to keep him off the field.Fantasy Spin:Rice posted his third 100-yard game of the season last week and has carried the ball at least 20 times in three of the last four Ravens games. Start him without worry as Baltimore would be smart to use him to keep the ball out of Peyton Manning's hands.
Below is the week 13 offensive line breakdown for the Pittsburgh Steelers loss to the San Diego Chargers this past Sunday.
Okay, I saw this week how the Baltimore Ravens made the fairly dramatic in-season move of replacing their offensive coordinator.
Cam Cameron went down for a number of alleged reasons, including his offense’s inconsistency and, interestingly enough, his apparent unwillingness to get the ball in the hands of star running back Ray Rice.
Here’s my question: Just how many touches...
