The Chargers will need their quarterback Philip Rivers to be on top of his game after having a rough game against Kansas City last weekend and throwing three interceptions. Rivers had a great game against the Broncos defense.

The Chargers, meanwhile, have scored more than 40 points just once all season. The Chargers defense has been stout through four games.

And, of course, there's quarterback Philip Rivers, who hasn't lost a step at age 35.

The Chargers rank second in the National Football League in sacks per pass attempt, bringing QBs down at a 13.25 percent clip.

Melvin Ingram, who picked the AFC Defensive Player of the Month will lead the Chargers defense once again on Sunday.

Factor in that two of the Chargers losses this season came on missed field goals in the waning seconds, and the Chargers are a much more risky team than their record suggests. San Diego's first two losses came by three points at Denver and two points at home against Miami. He's too much of a competitor not to bounce back from that ugly performance last week, and the Eagles secondary is hanging by a thread after Odell Beckham Jr. and Sterling Shepard shredded them a week ago. We'll see how the offense does without Darren Sproles who is done for the season.

After an early injury to Darren Sproles in the win over the Giants, it might have seemed like the flawless time for coach Doug Pederson to dump the run and go pass-heavy for the remainder of the game and, possibly, even the season.

On the offensive side of the ball the rushing game came alive after some shifting along the offensive line. They've done that despite the fact that they have the fourth most third downs of eight yards or more in the league (21 of 43). Opposing running backs have been targeted 16 times and have 12 catches for 117 yards (9.7 per catch) and one TD.

Wendell Smallwood is expected to get the majority of the touches that are being vacated by Sproles after his season ending injuries. Running back Melvin Gordon rushed 17 carries for 79 yards and one touchdown. Don't be surprised if the Chargers spring the upset with the Eagles traveling across the country for a late start.

Can the Chargers pull out a close win?

But this. this is essentially a home game for the Eagles, only 2,400 miles away.

Tim Jernigan and Beau Allen will start at defensive tackle for the Eagles.

Eagles key defensive players Jordan Hicks and Rodney McLeod, are listed as questionable and are expected to play on Sunday. First-round pick Mike Williams was ruled out earlier in the week, but it's nice to see him practicing albeit on a limited basis. However, the Cowboys are hosting the 2-1 Los Angeles Rams, and Washington is on the road against the undefeated Kansas City Chiefs. At home, with a chip on their shoulder, the Giants may be able to handle the Chargers easily.
