San Diego Chargers
The San Diego Chargers needed to get away after a difficult loss, yet they couldn't escape controversy during their bye week.Still awaiting the results of a league probe regarding the possible use of an illegal substance in their last game, the Chargers will try to avoid a third straight loss Sunday when they visit a Cleveland Browns team which could be missing Trent Richardson.Instead of heading into the bye with a two-game lead atop the AFC West, the Chargers (3-3) went into their break tied with Denver after giving up 35 unanswered second-half points in a 35-24 loss to the Broncos on Oct. 15.It tied for the fourth-biggest regular-season comeback in NFL history, and came just a week after San Diego surrendered the final 17 points in a 31-24 loss to previously winless New Orleans."When you lose it's rough, especially in a game where you had a big lead and so much at stake," said Philip Rivers, who had career highs with four interceptions and six turnovers against ...

The San Diego Chargers are avoiding paying kicker Nate Kaeding $1.2 million in termination pay, his agent told ESPN.com Friday. San Diego placed Kaeding on injured reserve Monday and plans to release him when he is healthy. Kaeding, one of the most accurate kickers in NFL history, injured his groin Sept. 28.

San Diego: What a bad way to go into your bye week. The Chargers looked good for the first half of their game against the Broncos in Week 6, going up 24-0 at the half, only to completely collapse after halftime and lose 35-24. Why the collapse? Look no further than Philip Rivers, who turned the ball over an incredible six times (four INTs, two fumbles) including a fumble return...
San Diego Chargers (3-3) at Cleveland Browns (1-6) I normally hate taking teams that are heavily publicly backed, but that’s exactly what I’m doing by taking the Chargers this week. I’m also taking a West Coast team on the road in the Eastern Time Zone at 1 PM, a situation that is normally bad for [...]
