Feels different to be playing an early afternoon game on a Sunday, doesn't it? It's been a while...
Predictions for this one are all over the board. Both teams believe the best defense is a good offense.
Something's gotta give...
The good news is the weather has cooled down in the Philly area.
It was very humid at FedEx Field on Monday night. As Phil Sheridan reported to us, center Jason Kelce said he needed to hit the oxygen tank for the first time since college (in fairness, it was only Kelce’s 19th NFL game). Kelly said he would be more careful to rotate players in order to keep them fresh. But this will be an issue all season for the Eagles. But for today's game, the cooler temps should help.
For the Chargers to have a good chance today, Phil Rivers has to be "on"...and it will be in the Eagles' interest to get some kind...

San Diego Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers gets into words with Philadelphia defensive lineman Fletcher Cox and then flops so obviously he embarrasses himself.
Time after time in the Chargers’ game against the Eagles, their offense faced a third down and put the ball into the hands of quarterback Philip Rivers, who lived up to the moment and came through. Rivers delivered almost every single time and the Chargers are 1-1 after Nick Novak’s field goal with seconds to play gave them a 33-30 win over the Eagles.
Rivers completed 12-of...
Philadelphia Eagles coach Chip Kelly wants to quicken his already high octane offense by helping out the officials. It's common for a player to be tackled and just toss or roll the ball, forcing the referee to go chasing it. Well, that time the referees is chasing is time Kelly wants to run more plays, so he's telling his players, 'give the ref the damn ball.'
The Philadelphia Eagles are coming off of a week 1 performance that left fans both ecstatic about what the future holds, as well as with a cloud of concern over the Eagles’ inability to put the game away. Philly held on for the win, but not without some late game drama on the part of a 20-0 run by the Washington Redskins. The Eagles’ week 2 foes, the San Diego Chargers, are in...
Chargers tight end Antonio Gates hauled in eight balls for 124 yards Sunday against the Eagles.Fantasy Spin:Gates is no longer the feared weapon he used to be -- this was his first 100-yard game since Week 17 of 2011 -- but he's still a TE1.
A week after falling into the “same old Chargers” trap, Mike McCoy's troops showed this is a new era of San Diego football. Philip Rivers threw for 419 yards and three scores and Nick Novak's fourth field goal capped a fourth-quarter rally as the Chargers stunned the Eagles, 33-30. Here is a looked at what worked, what didn't and what's next for San Diego.
Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers has seven touchdowns after two weeks.Fantasy Spin:He threw three scores and had 419 yards on 36-of-47 passing Sunday at Philadelphia. After two straight disappointing seasons, Rivers appears to be back on the fantasy radar now that Mike McCoy is heading up this operation instead of Norv Turner.
Nick Novak's 46-yard field goal Sunday sent the Chargers to a 33-30 victory over the Eagles.
The field goal Novak's fourth came after Philip Rivers marched the Chargers from their 21 to the Eagles 28. The drive began with two completions to Antonio Gates.
Eddie Royal caught three touchdowns from Rivers. His third touchdown -- and fifth this season -- moved the Chargers...
There was an extremely scary moment during yesterday's contest featuring the San Diego Chargers and Philadelphia Eagles. Chargers wide receiver Malcolm Floyd had his day ended early and he ultimately had to be carted off the field and taken to a nearby hospital in an ambulance. While there was concern that the neck injury Floyd suffered was significant, head coach Mike McCoy...

Last week our team of experts were split between the Eagles and Redskins. This week, it is a unanimous choice as each writer picks the Eagles to beat the San Diego Chargers.
The Chargers, coming off a come-from-behind loss, come to Philadelphia on a short week while traveling across the country. All of that leads to an Eagles win…or so...
San Diego Chargers wide reciever Malcom Floyd suffered a scary neck injury after colliding with Philadelphia Eagles linebacker DeMeco Ryans.
Leading 13-10 in the third Floyd caught a pass over the middle from Phillip Rivers but collided into DeMeco Ryans with his head down.
According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter via ProFootballTalk.com, the Philadelphia Eagles almost acquired Colin Kaepernick in a trade with the 49ers that would have sent a second round pick to San Francisco prior to the 2012 NFL draft.
Because Alex Smith had a strong year in 2011, after Kaepernick had been drafted, the 49ers reportedly were willing to move him. Schefter says the Eagles...
This was the 1998 game at Philly. I went to the 1995 one, but couldn't find any photos from it. That was when the Eagles had Ray Rhodes as coach and I remember listening to the radio on the way home as the postgame announcers blasted him. They were saying "he talks all tough, but the team plays soft, etc. I can't remember, but I think it might have been the game...
Chargers wideout Malcom Floyd took a huge hit from DeMeco Ryans on the first play from scrimmage in the second half and was taken off the field by stretcher.Fantasy Spin:Floyd had already totaled five catches for 102 yards in the first half. It appears to be a head or neck injury.
