The San Diego Chargers are now sitting with a .500 record of 3-3 after the first six weeks of the season. They have played some great football for some games and some very disappointing football for others. The team still is in the running for the playoffs if they can become more consistent, and this week’s matchup against the Jacksonville Jaguars should only help. Among all this, its time to look at the biggest surprises for the Bolts this year.
The Chargers offensive line was arguably the worst in the NFL last season. To improve this year, they brought in three new starters as well as shifted Jeromy Clary from tackle to guard. This year, the line was expected to be better, but still be well below average. However, the line has actually played surprisingly well for most of the season. The team is actually ranked 5th in the NFL in sacks allowed while the yards per carry is tied for 21st. Being ranked in the lower half for yards per carry isn’t ideal, but one t...

Rather than sitting and watching, San Diego Chargers wide receiver Keenan Allen has been playing and producing.
The third-round draft pick out of California, wasn't expected to do much this season. With veterans Danario Alexander, Malcom Floyd and Vincent Brown in front of him, Allen was to take a backseat for his rookie season.
Alexander was lost for the year with a knee injury...
San Diego Chargers left guard Chad Rinehart has been ruled out of Sunday's game against the winless Jacksonville Jaguars and inside linebacker Donald Butler is doubtful.
Neither Rinehart (toe) nor Butler (groin) was able to play in Monday's victory over the Indianapolis Colts and the Chargers wrapped up their practice week on Friday with both players again sitting out.

WR Rankings – Week Seven
Keenan Allen has been on a tear lately and has emerged as the number one receiver for Philip Rivers and the San Diego Chargers. The Chargers face a bad Jaguars team this weekend and Allen should have another solid fantasy day. We have Allen ranked as a WR2 this week as his talent is legit and his rapport with Rivers continues to grow week to week. Allen...
If by chance you’re still alive in your 2013 Eliminator (Suicide) Pools, here are some selections to ponder for week seven in the NFL:
SAFE PLAY: Chargers- One of the bigger surprises to this point in 2013 is the leader of the Chargers. Philip Rivers is third in passing yards (with 1847) and tied for second in TDs (with 14). Maybe even more surprising, Rivers only has 5 turnovers...
San Diego Chargers (3-3) at Jacksonville Jaguars (0-6)
What an accomplishment for the Jacksonville Jaguars! They covered the spread last week for the first time and this season, only losing to the Broncos by a mere 16 points. In all seriousness, the Jaguars could be kind of flat after putting everything they had into that game and coming up short. Now they return home to face the...
