Philip Rivers can rest easy knowing that his offensive line will do anything and everything to keep him out of harm’s way. In a play that was probably missed by most, as the Raiders-Chargers game didn’t kick off until 11:35 EST, San Diego’s D.J. Fluker pulled a wrestling move out of his bag of tricks. During the third quarter, Oakland linebacker Sio Moore attempted to blitz Moore, but Fluker ensured that didn’t happen. Fluker got under the linebacker, lifted him off his feet and dropped him to the ground. The offensive lineman was flagged for a personal foul on the play, with the referee viewing the move as a body slam.

NFL Rumors: Will the San Diego Chargers trade for RB Maurice Jones-Drew?

The San Diego Chargers have been surprisingly a very competitive team this year while the Jacksonville Jaguars are dreadful.

The Chargers have been a pleasant surprise this season; or should  I say that Phillip Rivers has been. So when they took on the Oakland Raiders in the NFL Up All Night Game Sunday  night there were few outside of Oakland that thought Al Davis's boys (and they will always be his) had a chance.Boy, were they wrong. @cjzero/Twitter The Raiders played really well over all...

Danny Woodhead is the second coming

You resisted making the comparison because it had seemed too easy. But then the little man in the Chargers uniform lined up in the slot and the defense made the decision to stick a linebacker on him and the little man ran past that linebacker and caught a perfect pass in stride in the end zone. And you had no choice but to exclaim “Philip Rivers has his Sproles back!” We can...
